When to Go to Portugal

Portugal's summers are ones of endless sunshine and 30-degree temperatures. The beaches are crowded with locals and tourists, and prices are at their most expensive. May and October are best for exploring and walking around historic town and archaeological sites as the temperatures are not too hot, but everything is still bathed in sunshine. Most of the rain falls in the winter, and inland mountain areas can get snow. Spring and fall are the best times to visit Portugal when it is not too hot, too busy, or too expensive. Book your hotel early if you're visiting during a busy time. School holidays are especially crowded.
