Portugal is such a beautiful country. With dark blue waters along the cliffs, castles and palaces to visit and explore, and delicious food to eat, there is never a dull moment in Portugal. We absolutely loved our time here in this country and felt so welcomed and loved! Today I will be sharing places to visit in Portugal that are a must!

Lisbon, Portugal

Our main stay while in Portugal was here in Lisbon. We had this perfect little hotel room with a great location that was next to the metro. In Lisbon, we explored a palace, the main strip with shopping and restaurants, and explored along the water by taking photos of beautiful buildings. Personally, my favorite part of this trip was visiting the little towns in-between and really getting to experience the culture while learning the history.

Sintra, Portugal

A small town with the best shops and cafes to buy your favorite items and try all the pastries! You can easily spend a few hours just in this small town alone, so be sure to book a tour that allows this! We also recommend booking a tour with transportation to the palace, because it is quite the hike up. Here is what we picked!

Cascais, Portugal

A town filled with restaurants and beaches to tan, hang out, and watch locals play volleyball!

Oeiras, Portugal

This is based off the cliff! There is a path you can walk along, and it’s perfect to take scenic photos while drinking a tea from the cafe and tourist shop.
