To macjake: April in Portugal

  • Hi Craig,

    April in fact is a great time to visit Portugal before it gets too hot and becomes overcrowded with visitors. Two weeks is probably about right for a first visit to the mainland, especially with the type of planning you do:-) Lisbon is worth a good four or five days; you could divide the rest of your time between the north and south of the country, which are completely different in terms of landscape and ambience. For the North, you could think about basing yourself in Porto, you have no doubt seen many pictures from there on TE. For the South, perhaps Faro or Albufeira. I'm sure you will enjoy it, a beautiful country with very friendly people.

    Thanks for your comments on my posting.
