In spring, Europe’s westernmost capital, Lisbon, dresses in her prettiest pastels, swathed in faded glory and bathed in warm climes. Picturesque hues pervade al-fresco alleyways. A trip to Portugal is a fairytale fling in a country undergoing something of a renaissance, born again to appreciative Europhiles. Lisbon’s rows of red-roofed tiles and bleached limestone buildings are outlined by the brilliant blue Atlantic and accentuated by Miradors (viewpoints). Fairytale palace-clad Sintra blossoms in spring; its hilly cobbled streets a backdrop for many a movie. Cascais features a sweeping beachfront dotted with some seriously luxurious boutique hotels. And Porto is fast gaining recognition as a second capital of culture. Corinthia Hotel Lisbon is a firm favourite for its luxurious surroundings and the best concierge in town.Recommended for:

Portugal has a vibrant culture and manageable sized cities that are quite pretty. I enjoyed the beautiful beaches and the city life. Portugal is also significantly more affordable than most Western European countries.
I guess I'm biased, because I'm the child of Portuguese parents, and have been going since I was a baby. I love Tras-os-Montes, which is up north. It's very rural, full of small little towns, but that is what I love about Portugal. I love Lisbon, especially Estadio da Luz, Benfica's stadium. You should definitely visit Portugal!
Easily on my top 5 list of favorite countries I've been to. My friend wanted to go to Portugal, I've never been interested but I figured why not. I never thought I would love it as much as I did. First off, everything was cheap which is always nice when traveling. The people were so amazing...they are welcoming, proud people who love sharing their culture with others. I fell in love with their custard pastry and their chicken piri piri. Food was amazing! I really want to go back to explore further.

I loved it so much I moved here from the UK! The Silver coast is probably my favourite place due to the amazing beaches and it's close proximity to Lisbon The history, culture and architecture will wow you constantly and the Portuguese are the most helpful and genuine people I have come across in my travels. www.exploresilvercoast.com has a lot of accomodation and useful info
