A well-deserved break that has everything to be just perfect. From destinations to programmes, the options are infinite. How about a picnic in the park? In Lisbon you can enjoy the more central Parque Eduardo VII and in Porto you have Parque da Cidade or Palácio de Cristal Gardens. A dinner by the river? In addition to Lisbon and Porto, the Douro Valley is also the perfect scenario!
By the river, in the park or along the streets of any one of these destinations, what about a bike ride? It's an excellent way to get to know a place, while getting lost in time and space, and enjoying the moment with your better-half.
Watching the sunset is a must on this tour, one of the most romantic times of the day! It's a quieter moment and the best opportunity to admire the beauty and serenity of these magical moments.
For those in search of something less conventional, you can always experience extreme activities where you're spending your holidays, and try something new. There are plenty of ideas: parachute jumping, climbing or slide. Look for an adventure!
Last, but not least, don't miss out on regional gastronomy. Ideally, you can book a restaurant with traditional food and panoramic views over the city or nature!
