Visiting the country of Portugal is akin to opening yourself up to a burst of colors: endless blue skies and waters, warm yellow sunshine, and verdant green forests. No wonder that this country has become a top destination for many travelers from around the world! For those who are pressed for time, you may not have the luxury of visiting every nook and cranny that Portugal has to offer. So here are some of the best places to visit and make the most of trip to Portugal.

Lisbon is definitely a must visit. You’d probably enter the country through Lisbon anyway, so you should make plans to spend at least a day or two here. While the city is quite hilly, it still is a great place to explore on foot. For a less strenuous trip, take a tram instead. Destinations of note within the city include Alfama, Biaxa, Castelo de São Jorge, and the River Taugus.

A major city in the northern part of the country is Porto. That name may sound familiar because it is the home of the world famous port wine. Its Old Town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Aside from the wine lodges, visitors should go visit the Church São Francisco.

Faro in the Algarve region is your destination of choice if you’re looking for a great summer vacation. This town is always full of people during the summer months as its beaches can hold their own among the world’s best beaches. More than the beaches, Faro boasts of the freshest seafood that you can find.
