At night, be sure to check out the numerous nightclubs all around the country, especially in Lisbon.


Feel a climate in Portugal as rich as their history

Portugal has two climate zones, a southern warm Mediterranean climate and a northern more temperate zone. Overall, it’ll be colder up north, somewhere around 54 degrees, while the south is more around 63 degrees. During the winter, freezing temperatures can be common up north, so you can enjoy ski trips in the mountains. If the beach is more your style, enjoy warm water typically in the high 60s to low 70s. Also expect sunny days as Portugal is one of the sunniest areas in Europe with around 320 days of sunshine a year, particularly in the summer.
