Beautiful city, the capital of Portugal is ancient and modern at once. Lovely old architecture mixed with equally impressive buildings built yesterday. And it's on the sea! Hurrah!

During our Portugal Honeymoon, Gayle and I took the train from Rossio Station in Lisbon to Sintra. The town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site on account of its 19th century Romantic architecture. And whether you're talking about the old Town Centre area, the Pena Palace, the nearby Moorish Castle, and the extensive surrounding park lands, this place is gorgeous ...

Coimbra is Portugal's University Town. And don't let the drab outer suburbs fool you. Once you get down by the river and wander up the hill, the vibe is pretty cool. We particularly liked the combination of elevator and funicular that got us up to the University area.

A short train ride along the shore from Lisbon's Cais do Sodré station leads to Cascais, a formerly quaint fishing village that became (along with neighboring Estoril) a popular resort favored by European nobility and kings in the early 20th century. Today it is a colorful cosmopolitan town with elegant pedestrian streets, luxuriant villas, fashionable shops, restaurants and bars. Gayle ...

A Great place to go. Some fantastic scenery and the people are very nice. The jeep safari is a must. The trip takes you up into the mountains and you get the most spectacular views. You have to be prepared to share the ride with other tourists but it is well worth it.

Gayle and I left Obidos on a very rainy day and decided that we should get down to our next stop in Queluz as soon as possible. That meant skipping Nazare to the North. But as a small consolation, we did want to see the Ocean and Peniche was the closest spot. The beach was nice (and rough) and the ...

The town of Óbidos is located on a hilltop, encircled by a fortified wall. It is known as the "Wedding Present Town" because it was a gift King Dinis gave to Queen Isabel on their wedding day in 1282. Appropriately, Gayle and I spend part of our Honeymoon here. Obidos is an extraordinarily romantic and picturesque place. This includes cobblestone ...

Gayle and I spend a nice afternoon in Tomar, a charming and historical town on the banks of the Nabao River. The main attraction for us was the Knights Templar Castle and Convent of the Order of Christ. It's a huge and magnificent ensemble of 12th- to 16th-century architecture and art and a World Heritage Site. Back in town (and ...

Sagres is popular for a reason - it's spectacular coastline and year round sunshine. The beaches are beautiful and there's a host of scenes to choose from and even some where privacy is not at a premium - good for the first time topless set . And if you're an exhibitionist, well there's a beach for that too, isn't there?

Small village in Algarve, much quieter than Albufeira but with a wonderful marina full of mega yachts and sailing boats. More than one golf court in the area and a long sandy beach in front of big (and slightly dated) resorts.

Lisbon is a big city, but that doesn't mean you have to go far to sink your toes into the sand. Most tourist overlook the nearest beach area, Caparica, and head northwest. Though I suggest visiting Caiscas and the great beaches to the north, Caparica is 10-15 on public transport. You can't beat it.
