Despite being blessed with sandy beaches, beautiful coastline, cosmopolitan cities and incredible weather, Portugal is often overlooked by anyone other than those seeking all inclusive holidays on the Algarve. However, with great food and wine, and plenty to see and do all for a cheap price it makes for a perfect city break for couples, families and solo travellers alike.
Lisbon is a hilly, coastal capital city made up of cobbled streets and terraced buildings tiled in pink, mint and lilac. The city has a welcoming, relaxed atmosphere, while it still embraces its deep-rooted heritage and history, and only a short journey away are a number of must-visit little towns. A string of stunning Atlantic beaches run from Cascais to Estoril, while in Belém ensure you cross off a tram ride and a visit to bakery Pasteis de Belém from your bucket list.
