Whether you are exploring the bustling streets of Lisbon, the quaint sidewalks of Porto or the coastlines of the Algarve, it’s easy to be charmed by Portugal’s beauty. I spent 10 days exploring the country, beginning in Lisbon for a few days, heading up to Porto, and then down the country to the Algarve where we stayed in Portimao before finishing back in Lisbon.
Dine at world-class restaurants in Lisbon before taking a day trip to Sintra, explore the winding streets of Porto sipping Port on the canal, or work on your tan on one of the many beaches dotted along the coast of the Algarve. It’s truly a magical country worth adding to your bucket list!
Here are a few snapshots from our trip!
