Discover Portugal

While it seems Americans are slowly catching on to Portugal tourism, British and Spanish travelers have been vacationing in Portugal for years! Budget-friendly destinations are few and far between in Europe, but Portugal remains an exception, with affordable food and lodging to be found all over the country.

Portugal is perhaps best known for its beaches. With over 500 miles of coastline along the Atlantic Ocean, Portugal draws beachgoers from all over Europe. The Algarve region in particular is a popular holiday destination. The main cities of Lisbon and Porto hold interesting historic sites, such as castles and fortresses. Portugal is also well-known for Porto wine, as well as the beautiful Azulejos tiles that can be seen throughout the country. Portugal also claims the autonomous island regions of the Azores and Madeira, which hold even more spectacular beaches and outdoor adventures.
