Portugal’s long and gorgeous shoreline and warm, year-round climate make it holiday heaven. The Portuguese coast stretches from Porto in the north, through Lisbon (the capital) to Faro – the main city in the famous Algarve. Foodies should seek out the country’s sun-ripened recipes. Explorers, don’t neglect the pretty inland scenery – no better showcased than at Sintra, a fairy-tale palace surrounded by enchanting forest. And don’t forget to count Madeira among Portugal’s riches: fly to Funchal to visit this Atlantic island-idyll.
