Portugal was one of the colonial era’s central powers. From its shores came the first European to reach India by sea. The Portuguese also conquered much of South America. Today, Portugal is no longer colonizing, but its cities reveal the nation’s former glory. Tour its famous port towns and explore its picturesque Atlantic islands.
Lisbon, Portugal's capital, shows off the country’s riches from the height of its colonial empire. Tour its Belém port district. From here, world-famous explorers like Vasco da Gama set sail centuries ago. Da Gama’s body is buried in the lengthy 16th-century Jerónimos Monastery (Mosteiro dos Jerónimos) and his statue stands atop the grand Rua Augusta Arch. Lisbon also displays Portugal’s own history as a country colonized by other empires. Explore the hilltop fortress of the 11th-century Castelo de São Jorge, which features traces of Roman, Visigoth and Moorish peoples.
While Lisbon is a city built on imports, the large city of Porto thrives due to one of the country’s best-known exports: port, the sweet dessert wine. Explore the wine country surrounding the city, where terraced vineyards blanket the hills along valleys of the winding Douro River. Porto’s hillside cityscape features both Baroque and modern architectural masterworks amid colorful townhouses.
One attraction that sets Portugal apart from its European neighbors is the Azores archipelago far from its shores but within its Atlantic borders. Fly to this collection of nine volcanic islands for some of the best outdoor adventures in Portugal. Towering over the archipelago is the country’s highest peak, Mount Pico. Climb to the top for excellent views over the Azores’ central islands. The main island of São Miguel features volcanic hot springs, a picturesque crater lake at its center and one of Europe’s few tea plantations.
Begin your stay in Portugal by flying into an international airport outside Lisbon or one near Ponta Delgada on São Miguel. Untamed volcanic wilderness and former imperial riches await.

The staff was very helpful as we tried to get back to the United States during the Covid-19 crisis. Very professional during a stressful time. Breakfast was great. Wish we had more time before we had to leave for our flight.
beautiful rooms, tile and furniture. We had very attentive staff, and a sparkling clean room. The bathroom was fully tiled, with soft slippers and robes available
Exceeded our expectations. This was our first visit to Pine Cliffs and we are already planning to go back.
Fantastic hotel with great restaurants on site which range from fine dining to beach pool snacks.
Staff were very friendly. Room was incredible - very modern, clean, functional. Shower/toilet layout was unconventional but we liked it. As a brit, would've loved milk with the coffee, but understand it's perhaps not the done thing. Brilliant hotel overall, worth the money.
This was our 8th visit to Tivoli Marina. As always it was fantastic in every way, close to all bars & restaurants, short transfers for golf, fabulous views from all sides of hotel
