With direct flights available from Israel to Portugal, only some five hours away, Israelis can now enjoy that beautiful country full of pleasant surprises, such as boutique wineries, enticing cliffs that overlook beautiful beaches, little villages, bustling cities and excellent cuisine.

We chose to rent a car and drive the 300 km. on our own from Porto to the capital Lisbon, Portugal's two largest cities. There are many interesting villages and sites to see along the way, so we decided to spend an entire week making the trip. We began in Porto, Portugal's second largest city, which is located on the mouth of the Douro River. The name of the city is also the name of the port wine for which the country is famous, and we were offered a taste of this sweet and rich wine at every meal we enjoyed in the city.
