When is the best time to visit?
Portugal is a year-round destination, but if possible, travelers should aim to visit in the springtime when the almond blossoms and wildflowers cover the countryside.
Where to go in Portugal?
Experience the traditional Alfama sector of Lisbon before it will be absorbed by the rest of the bustling city’s culture, tour the ancient ruins of Sintra and historic Evora, walk along the bluffs of Europe’s most southwestern point at Cabo de São Vicente, and relax on the beaches of Ilha de Tavira.
How many days do I need?
There are too many destinations that are must-sees in Portugal to see the country in less than a week. At least 12 days is best.
This seven-day food-inspired itinerary is designed for travelers passionate about learning the history and culture of Portuguese gastronomy. Experience the real Algarve as you eat, cook, and drink your way around Olhão and its neighboring villages.
Indulge your senses as you take in the unforgettable sights, flavors, and sounds of Portugal and Marrakech, Morocco on this adventure. Explore the vibrant cities of Lisbon and Porto before making your way to the charming towns and villages of the countryside. Then pop over to Marrakech to roam the souks and the medina before heading back to artsy Lisbon.
Spend a week exploring world-class cuisine at five of the top Michelin Star restaurants in the Algarve. Visit a world-famous wine cellar, explore medieval town squares, and try go-karting on Europe's largest race track. Spend the day with a traditional clam picker and discover Portugal's diverse culinary traditions.
Enjoy discovering the unspoiled nature of the eastern Algarve on this eight-day itinerary. Starting in Tavira, you'll work your way east along the coast to Castro Marim. You'll watch dolphins in the wild, hand pick oysters with local fishermen, horseback ride through lagoons, and soak in a mudbath on the expansive salt plains.
Escape to the hills of Monchique in Portugal's Algarve for a week of restorative spa treatments and wellness practices. You'll relax in therapeutic waters, enjoy hiking through eucalyptus and cork trees, participate in a transformational Zen practice, and paddleboard in the azure waters of the Atlantic.
