Portugal has a variety of deliciously scrumptious food to satisfy even the fussiest of eaters! With a huge variety of local and international cuisines to choose from, Portugal seems quite ahead of other European countries in its approach to fresh ingredients and experimentation on traditional dishes.
Noteworthy mentions: 'Time Out' in Lisbon, the Francesinha sandwich, Pastel de Nata.
Don't bother: Kebabs.
It all depends on your idea of fun! Lisbon had a really good nightlife, with perhaps the biggest attraction being that you can drink on the streets. Whilst the party scene isn't really up Sam and I's alley, we definitely appreciated the vibe and enthusiasm of everyone in the streets, whether they were hanging at local bars or waiting to enter clubs. One of the best places to go is the old town in Lisbon, where the streets are narrow and full of partygoers.
During the day there's museums, observatories and galleries in both Lisbon and Porto, as well as plenty of sightseeing. I know there are plenty more places in Portugal that have much to offer, so this is just a bite-size version of what you can expect!
Noteworthy mentions: Bèlem Tower (Lisbon), Praça do Comércio (Lisbon), Bèlem Tower (Lisbon), Livraria Lello Bookstore (Porto)
Don't bother: Going outside on a Monday.
