City of Seven Hills

Built on seven hills, Lisbon has experienced a renaissance in recent years, making it the cultural star of Portugal.
Escape the urban bustle at Praia da ursa and Guincho Beach. Do some cultural sightseeing at Belém Tower and Mosteiro dos Jeronimos. Step out of Lisbon with an excursion to Praia do Magoito in Sintra--about 44 minutes away. There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Castelo de S. Jorge, make a trip to Elevador de Santa Justa, choose your vessel at Nosso Tejo, and visit Alfama.

Unvanquished City

Called "Oporto" by many, the city of Porto along the Duoro River lent the country and Port wine their names. Portugal's second-largest metropolis dates back to the 4th century, representing both a rich cultural past and industrial present through its architecture and style.
Get some cultural insight at Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral) and Igreja da Ordem Terceira de São Francisco. Get in touch with nature at Douro River and Praia do Carneiro. There's much more to do: snap pictures at Ponte de Dom Luis I, get a taste of the local shopping with Livraria Lello, go for a stroll along the water at Cais da Ribeira, and get outside with Praia dos Ingleses.

Mountain Island
Composed of nine volcanic islands scattered in the Atlantic some 1,300 km (850 mi) west of continental Portugal, the Azores represent one of Europe's remotest vacation destinations. Settled sporadically over a span of several centuries, the islands in this archipelago retain much of their isolated feel, each one boasting its own distinct culture, dialect, and cuisine. Long overlooked by even the most adventurous travelers, the islands now surprise a growing number of visitors with their lavish natural beauty, good roads, and hospitable towns providing comfortable accommodations and modern amenities. Place the island of Pico at the top of your itinerary to discover Portugal's highest mountain, a picture-perfect volcanic cone rising above a landscape of World Heritage-listed vineyards.
