Here, you’ll find all the articles related to travelling in Portugal – everything from where to go and what to do to foodie guides, tips on using public transport, and other essential travel must knows.
Food & Drink
Portuguese food is a brand new cuisine to most people (besides the world-famous pastel de nata of course). But don’t worry: Portugalist has you covered.
Be sure to read the big, main guide to Portuguese food. There are also separate articles covering Portuguese desserts, cakes, coffee, wine, port wine, and other drinks, as well as regional food guides to places like Lisbon, Porto, the Algarve, the Azores, and Madeira.
Transport & Getting Around
If you’re planning on exploring Portugal, renting a car is definitely the easiest way to get around Portugal. We even have tips for 1-way car rental, renting a luxury car, and renting an automatic car.
Or, if you’re mainly just planning to stay in one place, you could get an airport transfer either.
While most people will fly to Portugal (Skyscanner and Google Flights are both great tools for finding flights), it’s also possible to drive here or to take the bus or train from another European country.
And, if you’re thinking of driving here from the UK or Ireland, we also have guides on how to drive here.
