If you choose Portugal as your holiday destination, it's likely the main reason is the stunning Algarve coast, but Portugal actually has a huge variety to offer the visitor, with interesting cities and beautiful countryside. The country's empirical past means it has some beautiful colonial architecture and fascinating history; all of this and more can be explored with Portugal car hire from major airports.
The capital city, Lisbon, was given a facelift for the World Expo in 1999, re-establishing the beautiful buildings and 16th century architecture the city is famous for. The characterful Baixa and Alfama districts retained their medieval cobbled streets and distinctive tiled walls and are the oldest parts. For panoramas of the city head up to the beautiful Castelo de São Jorge, which sits on a ridge above Lisbon.
For nightlife in Lisbon, the Bairro Alto has everything to offer visitors: great restaurants, vibrant bars, nightclubs and hard-working street hawkers. Or if you fancy some serious retail therapy then make time to visit the Chiado area. For architecture buffs the magnificent Mosteiro dos Jerónimos is a bookmark of Lisbon's colonial past and Manueline architecture. The city also has a good range of museums with historic artworks, coins, and ceramics, and most of Lisbon is easily navigated with cheap car hire in Portugal.
Further north, Porto, where the country's most famous export comes from, is a lovely city with a nice atmosphere, and the wine industry of the area can be explored from here.
If you want to get out into the countryside then the Douro Valley is absolutely classic Portuguese scenery, and northern Costa Verde with its gorgeous and remote coastlines is also a sight to be seen; visiting it is made possible by choosing the right Portugal car rental.
For sun-seekers the Algarve coast is a world-class resort destination. There are still secluded beaches and sleepy little towns despite the overall development. Faro is the centre of the action on the Algarve and still has its ancient city walls, which are interesting, and some decent museums.
