From relaxing beach escapes in the Algarve and a hiking trip to the westernmost point in mainland Europe to cultural tours of Lisbon, a personalized Portugal itinerary offers you the chance to indulge your passion in a leisurely manner.
When to go to Portugal
The best time to visit Portugal is from April until October. This is when travelers can enjoy sunny skies and temperatures in the high teens or low twenties (Celsius). July and August are the hottest months of the year and part of the peak tourist season, with competition for flights and sunbeds at their fiercest. A tailor-made Portugal itinerary for winter, on the other hand, allows you the chance to experience a more tranquil side of the country without having to jostle with crowds.
How long to stay in Portugal
If you are looking for a quick city break in Lisbon or Porto, a long weekend of three days would be the perfect amount of time. In seven days, you can dive into the history and culture of at least three destinations in the country. However, to get a feel for the country beyond its biggest cities, and have some time to enjoy its superb beaches and wineries, we recommend custom tours to Portugal lasting ten days or more. This duration is enough to cover everything from the cobbled alleys of Lisbon to the coastal splendor of Algarve and the rustic towns in Alentejo without feeling rushed.
Must-visit destinations in Portugal
If you wish to discover Portugal with a personalized itinerary, make sure that you spend at least a day in Lisbon, whose attractions range from architectural gems to world-class museums. Porto’s Ribeira area is yet another charming destination that you might want to explore. The fairy tale castles of Sintra, which have to be seen to be believed, are yet another highlight worth discovering. Similarly, while Cascais has traditional charm in bucket loads, Europe’s westernmost point, located in Cabo da Roca, has some of the country’s best walking routes. The Douro Valley, on the other hand, is not only stunning to look at and sail through, but also offers plenty of wine-tasting opportunities too.
