Swap the 9-to-5 for a glorious eight nights traveling around Portugal – stopping off in Porto, Albufeira, and Lisbon for 2-3 nights each. By day, explore the cities at your own pace or with our organized tours. By night, rest your head at comfortable, conveniently located 3-star hotels.
Your first stop on this eight-night getaway to paradisaical Portugal is Porto – a city in the country’s northwest and known for its port wine. Travelers certainly make the most of the wining and dining in Porto, glugging velvety ports and sinking their teeth into meaty francesinha sandwiches (one of the local delicacies).
Two nights later, you’ll find yourself in Albufeira for the second leg of your getaway. This pearly-white coastal gem nestled in Portugal’s Algarve region. Vibrant, lively and beachy, Albufeira is a beach-hoppers paradise – a perfect place to relax by the shore for hours on end; or fill your evenings with singing and dancing.
Following on from the beach paradise of Albufeira, you’ll stop off in Lisbon for two nights, home to the imposing Sao Jorge Castle which offers superlative views of the city’s reddish brown rooftops. The Portuguese capital offers the best of both worlds; heaps of culture and miles of beaches from Cascais to Estoril. This means you can go from basking in the sun’s rays to sightseeing around the city within a matter of hours.
