WHAT TO PACK?

what-to-pack
Sunscreen - To keep the burn at bay! Portugal is one of the sunniest countries in Europe, so protect yourself before you wreck yourself.

Shades - Whether you're shopping in Lisbon's chic Chiado district or topping up your tan on an Algarve beach, you'll be glad you brought the sunnies.

A camera - Thanks to its seven hills, Lisbon is dotted with miradouros, scenic viewpoints that will take your breath away and offer plenty of Instagram-friendly photo-ops. Best pack a couple of extra SD cards.

Sensible shoes - Pretty though they may be, the black and white cobbled streets of many Portuguese towns can be slippery, and they're also the quickest way to scupper a stiletto. Comfy flat-soled shoes are a must!

A phrase book - Though Portuguese isn't the easiest of languages to learn, locals are receptive to even the feeblest of efforts to communicate in their mother tongue. Do your prep and you'll soon make some new friends!
