So much to love

There are many ways to fall in love with Portugal: listening to its fado; sipping porto, vinho verde or Madeira; admiring its beautiful glazed tiles — azulejos — and diverse architecture; or visiting its magnificent beaches and bluffs. As you make your way from the capital region to the center and then north of the country, these passions will take you to Sintra and its famous national park, Cabo da Roca - the most westerly point of Europe, Batalha and its monastery, Coimbra - the oldest university town in the country, not to mention the outstanding Douro Valley and its precious nectars, including the towns of Peso da Régua and its wine museum and, of course, Porto. Portugal by bike – feel free to pursue your passions!
