Lisbon – Where the old meets the new, it has an incredibly rich heritage whilst being one of the trendiest capitals in Europe. Lisbon is a very walkable city and offer spectacular hilltop views in Alfama or at St. George’s Castle. One shouldn’t miss a ride in the famous Tram 28, that passes some of the cities must-sees, or a long walk along the waterfront neighbourhood of Belém.

Obidos – Discover this delightful town of white houses adorned with bougainvillea and honeysuckle, surrounded by its castle medieval walls. Considered as one of the most characterful places of central Portugal it is a symbol of a traditional Portuguese city. The surrounding region is equally fascinating, not far away from Lisbon and ideal for a day trip.

Porto – Be it the millennium-old cathedral or the latest molecular gastropub, the city of Porto is really a living heritage, one that reinvents itself while maintaining its core character. A vibrant and fascinating city, world-famous for the production of Port wine, matured in vast cellars that stretch along the banks of Douro River. But Porto is more than that: rich culture, a buzzing nightlife, captivating tourist attractions and many more is waiting to be discovered.

Algarve  – Unwind on white sand beaches with clear blue waters whilst enjoying the freshest fish and seafood you will ever taste! The Algarve is the beautiful southern coastline of Portugal, blessed with stunning beaches, charming fishing villages, and a glorious climate. Pristine beaches go hand in hand with family facilities, waterparks, a buzzing nightlife, and a number of historic towns. The ideal holiday destination for everyone.

Madeira – Sometimes dubbed “the pearl of the Atlantic”, Madeira is known for its steep peaks, beautiful flowers and… for being the birthplace of Cristiano Ronaldo. Having the same latitude as North Africa, Madeira surprises with subtropical forests, an eternal spring-like climate, romantic mountain roads and countless botanical gardens. The island has much to offer for outdoor fans, divers, and nature lovers. Adrenaline junkies should not miss the Skywalk on the south cost which was build on a 580-metre-high cliff.

Sintra – From magical forests to romantic palaces, Sintra never fails to seduce. Declared as an UNESCO World Heritage site in 1995, the sights in Sintra seem endless. The Palácio Nacional da Pena is definitely one of the city’s highlights and considered a true representative of romanticism in Portugal. The city is perfect for a day trip from Lisbon and offers an unforgettable mix of historic buildings and beautiful natural scenery.

Alentejo – While to the north the pace is set by the green of the flatlands as far as the eye can see, further south the landscape combines with the sun, the heat, and a slower pace of life. The Alentejo, the idyllic heartland of Portugal, impresses with variety: deserted surf beaches and charming fishing villages on the western coastline and picturesque walled towns and forts on the boarder to Spain. An ideal place for those that wish to escape the tourist crowds and dive into the authentic Portugal.

Douro Valley – A dream made of enchanted valleys, unscathed nature, and world heritage sites; in its steep vineyards is where Port Wine is produced. The Douro Valley in northern Portugal is the oldest wine-growing region in the world and was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The cultivation of wine here dates back to the Roman’s. With all these centuries-old vineyards running along the Douro River, the area is a must-visit for gourmets and vine-lovers and shouldn’t be missed during a stay in Portugal.

Azores – Explore the oldest tea plantation in Europe, experience the four seasons on the same day and try the famous stew cooked underground at the volcanic craters. The Azores, Europe’s hidden gem in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, are full of exotic flora, unspoiled landscape, black sand beaches, and unique sights at every corner. Ranging from the conical Pico, Portugal’s highest mountain to numerous craters (many of them are home to beautiful lakes) the islands are impressing with a lush vegetation.
