When to go in Portugal?

The climate in Portugal is temperate and very comfortable. So there's no ideal time of year for a trip to Portugal: temperatures are favourable all year round. All the same, it's more pleasant to travel there in Spring or Autumn. In truth, winter can be cold inland, and summer is very hot almost everywhere. To make the most of this temperate country, then, we advise you travel in mid-season. The Algarve region, the furthest South in the country, can definitely be visited all year round. It offers splendid beaches, and temperatures never fall below 10 degrees!

After making contact through the online website, Tiago proposed an itinerary which met our needs. Prior to the trip with him, we had spent a week in Portugal, in Lisbon and Porto, touring with our son and his family. After they left, with Tiago we went to the Douro Valley, Coimbra, Nazaré, Óbidos, and other places. The hotels were excellent and Tiago took us to good restaurants. He is very knowledgeable about architecture and history.
