If you’ve ever thought about exploring Portugal, then please don’t wait any longer – it’s a wonderful country with so much to offer. Here at Totally Spain, we’ve seen the hugely positive shift in the standard and quality of the tourist offering in Portugal over the past decade. And we love designing custom itineraries for our valued clients so they can appreciate the charms of Portuguese food, its architecture, its capital city, its coastline and its interior and it’s wonderful people.

The Lisbon region is perfect for a week long break featuring a few days in the capital plus a few daytrips to nearby towns and villages. As you’ll see below, there is an excellent choice to appeal to all tastes and interests.
