Portugal Travel Tips

Welcome to Europe’s most underrated destination, a country that’s tucked away but worth the trip.  If you’re in the mood for something different, a Portugal vacation should top your wish list.  Here you’ll encounter a rich array of treasures and traditions, preserved through the centuries by the Iberian Peninsula’s relative isolation.  Portugal impresses its visitors with a fascinating collection of natural and man-made attractions. Fifteen UNESCO World Heritage Sites await your exploration, including Lisbon’s Belém Tower, a prominent symbol of Europe’s Age of Discovery.  And while Vasco da Gama may have preferred to ply the surrounding waters of the Atlantic, you can take a Douro River Cruise through the 2000 year old wine growing region of the Douro Valley.  Our best-selling collection offers many possibilities for the perfect Portugal vacation, with something in every travel style and for every interest.

Other highlights to experience on your Portugal vacation include the Catholic pilgrimage site of Fátima, the medieval city of Obidos and coastal town of Porto.  Whichever Portugal vacation you choose, you’ll enjoy expert guides, enriching encounters and special access to legendary sites.  What are you waiting for? Get inspired with our collection expertly planned trips and leave rest to us.
