Portugal is one of the "top 10 countries to visit in 2017" according to the Rough Guides

The Rough Guides, one of the leading publisher of travel in the world, selected their "top 10 countries to visit in 2017" and Portugal ranks #7.


For the Rough Guides, Portugal is:

"Portugal is on the up, finally surfacing after five years of deep economic crisis. Tourism in the countryside and on the coast is booming, while the cities are becoming increasingly cosmopolitan thanks to thriving creative industries, world-class restaurants and cutting-edge art scenes.

Central to this transformation is Lisbon, home to a host of forward-thinking startups and a growing bohemian vibe. Come for the liberatingly low rents and hotel costs, gorgeous historic neighbourhoods, never-ending nightlife and among the best year-round weather in Europe. In the north, laidback Porto is proudly embracing its own identity, too, both as a gritty cultural hub and the country’s food-and-drink capital. Beyond the cities, in much of Portugal an old-world pace of life still pervades. Along the country’s long swathes of coastline you’ll find everything from quaint fishing towns, all of which are perennially cheap, to the balmy beaches and wildlife reserves of the Algarve".
