In celebration of the recent signing of the Green Motion Master Country Franchise for Portugal, why not look at a road trip this summer to really see the best of what this beautiful country has to offer.
Lazing around on a beach in the Algarve is tempting – but Portugal has so much more for you to see; with over 500km of coastline to explore a road trip is the perfect way to fully experience Portugal’s amazing culture, history and stunning scenery.
In the capital Lisbon you can soak up the atmosphere walking around downtown, making sure you check out the typically Portuguese neighbourhoods of Alfama and Graça, as well as the quaint narrow streets leading up to the Moorish castle, Castelo de São Jorge.
From Lisbon you can either travel north to Porto stopping at the lovely beach towns of Peniche and Nazare, known for their world class surfing, or you can head south via the Costa Alentejana and Vicentina. The southwestern coast of the country is where you’ll find hidden gems overlooked by most tourists. Characterised by dramatic cliffs, unspoilt beaches dotted with quaint villages and huge national parks such as the Southwest Alentejo and Vicentine Coast Natural Park, this is where you will be blown away by the true beauty of this magnificent landscape.
