Portuguese food isn’t something that most people – even the most dedicated foodies – know a lot about, so hopefully these articles will help you find the best things to eat and drink while you’re in Portugal.

  1. I’m thinking of traveling to Portugal with my husband, 13 and 15 year old girls for Xmas break. I speak some Brazilian portuguese. It’ll be the girls’ first time in Europe, so likely visit 2 cities over 10 days or so. Any suggestions of which would be a great intro to Europe and a fun holiday visit?

    • For Portugal, Lisbon and Porto are the two favourite cities. Christmas time is cold up North (and even in Lisbon) by Portuguese standards, so keep that in mind when packing.

      As for other European cities, I would probably consider at least one Northern European city that has big Christmas markets like Strasbourg, Prague, Vienna, or Nuremburg.
