The 5 Best Romantic Activities For Couples In Portugal
Whether you fancy an island adventure in Madeira or want to stick to the mainland for wine, palaces, museums, and gastronomic explorations, Portugal is ideal for romantic breaks. Here are 5 suggestions for activities never fail to delight couples.
Visit Sintra's Palace of Pena
Located in the beautiful town of Sintra, this 19th century royal palace evokes images from Sleeping Beauty and other fairy tales, with its colourful towers and hilltop setting. When you add in the 200 acres of the surrounding Parque de Pena, and nearby attractions like the Moorish-influenced Monserrate Palace, the whole complex is irresistible.
Lisbon's most attractive and historically important city is a wonderful place for couples to explore. The jumping off point for the famous voyages of Vasco da Gama, Belem is a treasure store of architectural delights including the Jerónimos monastery with its breathtaking sculptures, and the ornate Tower of Belem by the seashore. There are delightful cafes serving up delicious Pasteis de Nata - the custard tarts that originated in the suburb.
Spend the evening in the Bairro Alto
Another famous Lisbon district, the Bairro Alto is the place for couples who want an intimate meal for two, or a raucous night out in the capital's liveliest bars. Its steep streets and winding alleys give the Bairro an almost medieval feel, but the food and entertainment on offer is right up to date, from seared Atlantic tuna with miso glaze to Peruvian ceviche and gourmet sourdough pizzas.
Hike in Madeira's mountains
Madeira seems made for couples, with natural beauty, fine food, excellent sport activities, and the urban delights of Funchal. Madeira's mountain paths offer the best chance to spend some quality time in gorgeous locations: hiking to viewpoints in Pico Ruivo or Pico do Areiro is a great way to get away from it all, while taking some outstanding shots for social media followers back home.
Take a tour of a Porto wine cellar
Portugal's northern centre has a lot going for it, from botanical gardens to modern art, but the city is definitely most famous for one commodity: wine. Port wine originated in Porto, and has spread across the world, and the city is full of cellars where local vintages compete for attention. Reservations are recommended at standouts like Graham's, where Vinum restaurant mixes gourmet food and wine in a delicious combination.
