Portugal — Still off the mainstream tourist’s radar, small and slow-paced Portugal hides a diversity of experiences – a delightful capital city, whitewashed villages, sun-soaked beaches, medieval walled towns, stellar food and wine, and dazzling countryside.

Why Go

For the old world charm and architecture of Lisbon, wine in Porto, golfing on the Algarve, and excellent beach resorts.
