Summer Spells Europe: Portugal

Lisbon, Portugal

They say big things come in small packages. This rings true for Portugal - small compared to its neighboring country of Spain, this coastal region pleasantly surprises travelers with its abundant history and culture.

Much like most European regions, Portugal plays host to numerous cultural influences, including a variety of UNESCO World Heritage sites in multitude locations along the country.

With the country lined beautifully by the coast, this is also a place that boasts some of the best seafood in Europe. Whether it’d be sampling their simple, yet fresh char-grilled fish or their flavorful Cataplana (seafood stew), Portugal is notable for their coastal fare.

Mind you, this isn’t the only thing that they’re noted for. The country has mastered the art of contrasts, perfecting both simple and culinary dishes. Being the birthplace of port wine (naturally from Porto), Portugal also receives raving reviews for quality wine.

This is also a place of solace - unplugging is relatively easy given the picturesque views of the coast.

Portugal is a sun-drenched destination that promises a picture perfect experience, time after time. To book your Europe getaway to Portugal, call and speak to one of our Travel Specialists today at 1.888.685.6888.
