Portugal

Europe


Home to some of Europe's best beaches at Algarve, as well as an elegant sophisticated capital in Lisbon, Portugal is captivating destination. Here you can experience ancient history, with much of the country's architecture dating to the 1500s-1800s when it ruled the maritime world, plus delicious food and wine and a bucolic countryside where cobblestone villages and medieval castles still hold court. Although much of the coastline has been discovered, there are still hidden beaches to be found along the Costa Vicentina and plenty of off the beaten path corners inland, where you can bump into local shepherds walking through meadows. The people here are warm and friendly, just like the bright sunlight that makes this magical country sparkle.
