Portugal has destinations for every type of traveler: Lisbon, with its museums and historic neighborhoods; the sunny beaches of the Algarve, and nearby hiking trails too; and Porto, a must for oenophiles, are a few of the many reasons to visit. While the coastal regions are known for their warm weather and charming whitewashed towns, Portugal also offers culture, history, and night life-all at lower prices than the rest of Europe. Lisbon's night clubs host some of today's top DJs, and there's a lively Afro-Portuguese dance music scene as well as opportunities to hear fado, a traditional genre steeped in passion. In Lisbon's historical neighborhood of Belém, you'll find several museums, including the Museu Colecção Berardo contemporary art museum and the recently opened Museum of Art, Architecture, and Technology.
