Portugal is culturally diverse, especially when it comes to food; the country’s cuisine has a variety of European influences. Here you can sample signature dishes such as salted codfish, grilled meat, casseroles and Portuguese custard tarts. Portuguese wine is also worth noting; the country is renowned for its port wines, though its whites and reds are just as mouth-watering, especially when sampled at the wine region of Douro amidst a backdrop of lush vineyards and hillsides.
Experience Lisbon, the vibrant Portuguese capital which is best known for its contrast of old-world charm and modernity. Here there are plenty of bustling markets, night spots, museums, historic monuments and ancient ruins. If beaches and relaxation is more your thing, consider the Algarve region on the southern coastline of Portugal which boasts picture perfect bays, beaches, coves and charming fishing towns.
