27 Awesome Portugal Photos to Inspire Your Vacation
Portugal is our favourite European country. It’s beautiful, warm, friendly, tasty, trendy, historic and inexpensive (when compared to the rest of western Europe). By following a tried and tested Portugal two week itinerary you’ll have just the right amount of time to visit the country’s highlights. But it’s also possible to squeeze them all in a one week Portugal trip.
Portugal has an impressive and ever-changing coastline that stretches from the Algarve in the south and curves right up to the entire west coast as far as its most northern point. The west coast holds some lovely little hidden gems in the form of local fishing villages and small beach towns such as Villa Nova de Milfontes.
Portugal houses two of Europe’s most up and coming cities – Lisbon and Porto. The capital city of Lisbon is a Portugal highlight with it’s historic Alfama district, hip hangouts and numerous viewpoints across the red-tiled rooftops to the bright Rio Tejo. Porto, Portugal’s second city, is beginning to get a lot of deserved attention from tourists and expats because of it’s quaint UNESCO Ribeira district, pretty Duoro River and abundance of port wine cellars. But do not forget about the lesser known cities. Evora, for example, is a beautiful UNESCO world heritage site that should not be missed.
Portugal also has thirteen natural parks including the Duoro Valley, a gorgeous mountainous landscape peppered with dozens of vineyards and wineries.
