Portugal charmed us from the start as we ventured through a maze of colorful alleyways in Lisbon’s Bairro Alto neighborhood. After seeing panoramic views of the city and joining locals at a music festival, we took a road trip through the medieval villages of the Alentejo and through the Algarve’s scenic southern coast. Do you like wine, seafood, enchanting scenery and history? Give Portugal a shot.

Alternative Experiences in Lisbon
Beyond the tourist centers of Bairro Alto, the Alfama and the bustle of Baixa are some equally fascinating experiences that show other faces of Lisbon: the modern, the arty and the creative.
At Home in Lisbon with The Lisboans
It's true that being at home is a feeling, not a place. As if we did not already feel at home in Lisbon because we'd been there before, this time, we felt like we had a private Portuguese homestay at The Lisboans, an apartment-style hotel located right downtown between Baixa and the Alfama.
Tiles, Glowing Sunsets and Highlights of Porto, Portugal
Porto is different from Lisbon and the south of Portugal. It has more of a traditional feel in its tiled homes and narrow alleys. We nailed down the best sunset spot, tried Port wine with locals and had coffee in both new and old cafes.
