Beautiful cities to discover
A number of beautiful cities in Portugal that you should definitely visit from your holiday home, are for example Porto and the beautiful Faro. Faro is the capital of the Algarve, but has only 60,000 inhabitants. That makes this city a small, cosy destination during your holiday. The city has a beautiful coastline, beautiful white houses and an old city centre that is walled by an old city wall. In short, you have a beautiful example of an authentic Portuguese city.
More famous is Porto, the city of the Port. Porto is an excellent city for a city trip. Here you have the most delicious wine (and port) tastings. But also for authentic Portuguese dishes Porto is the place to be. Discover the tastiest restaurants in small alleys and avoid the large restaurant on the quayside of the Rivièro Do Douro. Here you see mainly tourists. Discover the multifaceted art history of the city as you immerse yourself in all the beauty of Porto.
