roomsXML smashing prices throughout Portugal
Not just a location for retiring Brits, Portugal has something for everyone. From monuments in one of the most romantic places in Europe in Sintra, to bike tours throughout Lisbon discovering the amazing monuments; all the while keeping a lid on your CO2 emissions and helping to burn off some of your evening cocktails and scrumptious dinner. Maybe some Frango Piri Piri (chicken piri piri), or a Portuguese staple of Enchidos; regionally different, but substantially similar to a sausage (certainly not low fat). If that doesn’t tickle your fancy, you can always head to the buffet for Cod Stew, or maybe you like your cod ‘Bacalhau A Bras’ (sauteed with with onion and potato); probably the most palatable version.
Lets face it, one of the best things about international travel is the discovery of new foods, or the best versions of foods that you have been eating for years. Naturally, the main reason you want to explore Portugal is to find the best custard tarts right ? Well, maybe not, but one shouldn’t go to Portugal without find the very best. The original home of the Portuguese custard tart (the Pasteis de Belem) is Antiga Confeitaria de Belem; surely a rare exception allowed for a selfie?
If you only have a little time to explore Portugal, one of the best places to head is Lisbon. With a rich history of explorers and expeditions, Lisbon has an amazing array of historical monuments such as the Jerronimos Monastery, the Torre De Belem (was a main point of historical defense).
Normally when travelling, we unintentionally find ourselves visiting similar things to what exists at home; an example would be visiting aquariums when the one at home (for me, Melbourne Aquarium) is top notch, however the Lisbon Oceanarium is consistently rated as one of the top things to see in Lisbon (number 1 of 392 in Trip Advisor). A unique place with activities for kids of all ages including a sleep over, and presentations of conservation efforts. Private tours of Lisbon including Oceanarium entry can be bought from $67.
Alternatively, Lisbon can be experienced on the seminal Hop-On-Hop-Off tour that covers the cultural sections of Belem, the Oceanarium, Pombal Square, and the Tower Vasco da Gama amongst others. Departures every 30 or 60 min depending on the route.
