If your idea of a holiday isn’t jostling with the summer crowds or paying extortionately high prices for things, then we’ve got the hot tips on when to plan your trip to Portugal.
By following our guide you can avoid the summer heat and harsh winter weather and enjoy everything that Portugal has to offer in peace.
The ideal times to visit Portugal for mild sightseeing weather and minimal crowds are spring (March-May) and autumn (September-October).
For sunshine in spades, travel to Portugal between June and August as this is when the sights, the beaches and the streets come alive and are bustling with activities.
For a budget-savvy break, travel to Portugal during the rainy season between November and February.
Portugal has four seasons: spring, summer, autumn and winter.
Spring (March-May) and autumn (September-October) are less expensive times to travel. They’re defined by mild weather, which is ideal for exploring the city on foot, though we would recommend packing a windbreaker just in case. Autumn is also harvest season, which means there’s wine aplenty!
Summer in Portugal is the high season when both tourists and locals flock here for the warm sea air and stunning water and to take part in local festivals across the country.
The winter months between November and February are Portugal’s rainy season, however, it’s the time of year when cities like Lisbon come alive with Christmas decorations, markets and food.
