A POEM LIKE PORTUGAL
Lively & charming
“Portuguese is cheerful and sweet, like a language of birds.”- PAULO RóNAI
Where the history is rich and the stories enchanting. Where white sandy beaches, and rugged coastlines play hide-and-seek. Where beautiful cities are filled with pretty streets. Where delicious food can be paired with endless glasses of local wine. Where the mountains meet the sea and adventures await in the looping cliffside paths. Where the people are warm and the vibe is laid-back.

Walk around the Alfama, Lisbon's oldest and most atmospheric quarter, a labyrinthine maze of narrow streets, steps and alleys wrapped round the steep lower slopes of the Moorish castle. Go on a culinary tour and then try the local ginjinha, the cure for all aches and pains! Lose yourself in the strains of the fado, in little Alfama, Mouraria or Bairro Alto. Stroll the streets of historic Porto truly enjoy the city, strolling the streets, taking in the views, and tasting Port wine at the Port lodges.
