Portugal Coastal ViewPortugal is a country on the Iberian Peninsula, located in southwestern Europe. Portugal was voted “Best European Country” to visit by USA TODAY (2014). It is the westernmost country of mainland Europe and is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the west and south and by Spain to the north and east. The Atlantic archipelagos of the Azores and Madeira are also part of Portugal. During the 15th and 16th centuries, with a global empire that included possessions in Africa, Asia, and South America, Portugal was one of the world’s major economic, political, and cultural powers. Today it is a major tourist destination and one of the warmest European countries.

WE’VE CREATED THIS UNIQUE PRIVATE TOUR JUST FOR YOU!
JOIN US AS WE LEAD THE WAY IN DISCOVERING THE CITIES OF PORTO & LISBON AND THE DELIGHTS OF THEIR SURROUNDING REGIONS.

PORTO, also known as Oporto in English, is the second largest city in Portugal and one of the major urban areas in the Iberian Peninsula. Located along the Douro river estuary in northern Portugal, Porto is one of the oldest European centers, and registered as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Its settlement dates back many centuries, when it was an outpost of the Roman Empire. One of Portugal’s internationally famous exports, port wine, is named for Porto, since the metropolitan area was responsible for the production and export of the fortified wine.

HOTEL INTERCONTINENTAL PORTO

LISBON, the capital of Portugal, was once the center of the spice trade route and meeting point for people from all over the world. It held its own with the super powers, as one of the greatest players in the discovery of the New World, and the city still remembers these glories with pride. The cosmopolitan feeling is still felt in this city with its medieval quarters, and the rich history is evidenced by the Belem tower, a sentinel over the Tagus River that traditionally protected the entrance into Lisbon and the UNESCO of Jerónimos Monastery. The surrounding area holds delights such as Évora, a museum-city, with Roman roots, Estremoz, a town so rich in its natural production of marble that even the doorsteps, pavements, and the cobble stones are made out of marble and Sintra, a World Heritage site known as “Lord Byron’s Glorious Eden”.
