Portugal conjures images of sun-drenched beaches, alluring mountains, lush valleys, rolling plains and exciting cities. Once a prolific maritime empire, Portugal is famous for its high quality wines and awesome monuments. Relax in one of its beautiful islands, escape to the mountains or hike through picturesque trails. The country is full of wonderful surprises from an unforgettable cuisine to pristine natural parks. It will be hard to cram everything in one visit, you probably have to go on several flights to Portugal to truly know and experience the country. Visitors will usually land at one of several international airports: Lisbon Portela Airport, Faro Airport or Francisco Sa Carneiro Airport. Royal Air Maroc, British Airways, TAP Portugal, Aer Lingus and Delta are some commercial airlines that serve the nation.
Lisbon is Portugal's 'sunshine capital' receiving no less than 3,000 hours of sunlight in a year. It is compact and easily accessible by foot. Visit museums and galleries or head to the beaches to bask in the sun. At night, experience the lively nightlife in Barrio Alto, listen to fado music or taste Portuguese specialities. Lisbon's range of attractions is so diverse, you'd better pack an extra suitcase as you will be staying longer. Portugal's second city, Porto, is not only famous for its fine wines, it also boasts a medieval history, fantastic food, architecture and friendly locals. The city will captivate you with its mesmerising charm, from tall miradouros (lookouts) and extravagant churches to incredible ocean views and sandy beaches.
Portugal can boast as having some of the best airlines in the world with Tap Portugal being rated as one of the top 15 airlines in the world, according to the Best Airlines 2017 study, based on eDreams customer reviews received during 2016.
