And if you like your nights to be lively and exciting, start the evening on a café terrace by the sea or riverside. Then all you have to do is choose a bar or a disco and dance the night away.
You can even choose the kind of atmosphere you prefer - be it retro, alternative, or something that’s a little more chic. In Lisbon, some of the best DJs play at the Docas, by the banks of the River Tagus. Or you could stroll through the streets of Bairro Alto, the Mecca of alternative culture, with its designer shops and fashionable bars. In Porto, the most fun is to be had in the Ribeira district, looking out over the River Douro, or you can carry on to Matosinhos and Vila Nova de Gaia and dance till dawn.
In Coimbra, Braga and Évora, follow the student crowd. They’ll make sure you have a lively night out.
Many people prefer to come to Portugal in June for the street festivals, our popular celebrations of the local patron saints.
If you prefer something quieter, but equally memorable, then have dinner to the sound of the Fado, and get in touch with your feelings. Whatever you decide to do, you’ll have fun in Portugal!
