Images of Portugal

Explore the coast of Portugal, from Lisbon to Porto

No longer Europe’s best kept secret, Portugal is the place to come for a European holiday with a twist. Full of grand cities, medieval villages and World Heritage sites, this is a charming country where you’ll feel like a week just isn’t enough.

Why you'll love this trip

  • Get an insight into Fado, an atmospheric amalgamation of music and poetry, a very popular art form in Coimbra.

  • Soak up the glamour and the sun while winding along the stunning Bay of Cascais

  • Feel the royal heritage and the student-led vibrancy in the Old Quarter of the university town of Coimbra

  • Follow the smell of stinky cheese to the Comer e Chorar Por Mais – filled to the brim with delicious cheese, meats, breads and port. Huddle around an upturned port barrel on the shop floor for exclusive tastings in Porto

  • Enjoy a classy stay in Coimbra, your feature stay hotel overlooks the stunning Mondego River and is situated close to the center of action, the historic town of Coimbra.

  • Much like the first king of Portugal did, survey a landscape filled with history from the Palace of the Dukes of Braganza.

Is this trip right for you?

  • On this trip you will visit a lot of interesting places and you will discover them predominantly on foot. That means you’ll be expected to walk for, often, most of the day which will be tiring in hilly Portugal. Good, comfortable pair of walking shoes will definitely help!

  • Summer temperatures can be very high in this region (over 40°C), which can be uncomfortable. It’s important to use sun protection, wear layers to combat the heat, and drink plenty of water. Please carefully consider the time of the year you wish to travel and your suitability to that season.

  • As accommodation on this trip is twin-share, single travellers will share a room with another traveller of the same sex. If you’d prefer not to share, a single room supplement is available at an additional charge. Please ask your travel consultant for more details. Also, hotels in Europe often don't have double beds, but rather two single beds that can be pushed together and rooms in Europe can seem rather small by American or Australian standards.

  • Cobblestones are common in Portuguese cities and so in that case you may prefer to bring a backpack instead of rigid wheelie suitcase. It's also important not to exceed the luggage weight and size recommendations. You can find this information in the 'What to Take' section of the trip notes provided with all bookings.
