Here on a one night stop over. Have always had an interest in Lisbon but somehow has never captured my imagination like other European options. What a surprise. Think of it as a European San Francisco minus the tech boom. Artsy and a little gritty but packs a lot of no nonsense style and is very enjoyable.

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.

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 ...

Evora is a photogenic place due to it having preserved many different layers of architecture from many traditions over the centuries. The town is full of small roads and little cafes here and there. We went there with a friend for photoshoot. To our surprise we found that there were no restaurants (just small cafes) open on that late Sunday ...

If you thought your professors were tough, consider that this university, founded in 1290, once had its own court of law and, naturally, its own prison for students and scholars (under the library). One of the oldest continuously operating universities in the world, the institution grew and evolved for more than 700 years within the old town. It now includes ...

Perfect day trip from Lisbon. An easy train ride away with several historical landmarks, a few castles and super close to the Atlantic Ocean. What more could you want?

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.

i found personally the portugese people did not have a great personality towards english speaking tourists, temperature in the evenings got very cool which was surprising. faro was a very quite laid back place not your bustling buzzy place.

Belmonte was the most delightful surprise during our trip to Portugal. The nearby Pousada is marvelous and once in town we were enchanted with the Synagogue, Jewish Museum, Brazil Museum, and the Olive Oil Museum. There's also an old castle that features a music festival, several interesting old churches, and within a space that is very walkable and friendly. Most ...

This is a little town with a big reputation in the surf community. With full-time residents numbering in the hundreds, Peniche has made a name for itself on the international surfing circuit for the (sometimes tragically) great waves at Supertubos beach. On the less extreme side, Peniche is also increasingly becoming a popular vacation spot for Brits looking for something ...

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 ...

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.
