Overview

Truly the guides that show you what others only tell you, this book features stunning 3D and cutaway views of museums, cathedrals, and other must-see sights; detailed street maps; a handy phrase section; advice on the best places to eat, drink, shop, sleep, and be entertained; and a Survival Guide to help the traveler sort out essential information such as currency, transportation, and communications. As world traveler and TV personality Michael Palin says, "the Eyewitness Travel Guides are irresistibly seductive.... They also deliver where it matters most -- uncluttered and accurate information." Portugal is a country of rugged landscapes, sophisticated cities, rural backwaters, sandy coves, rustic fishing villages, and sharply contrasting traditions, and no travel resource brings it all together like DK's Eyewitness Travel Guide: Portugal. With more than 1000 color photographs, this accessible handbook covers the country in nine regional chapters and a nearly eighty-page section devoted to Lisbon. Portugal's key attractions are all examined: architecture, history, seafood, cuisine, wines, and much, much more. Explore the 18th century city center of Lisbon in precise street maps and vibrantly illustrated 3-D overviews that direct you to such sights as the Museu da Sociedade de Geografia, Castelo de Sao Jorge, and Mosterio dos Jeronimos. Explore Serra de Sintra with an illustrated tour that lists major roadways, points out landscape details, and directs you to such prime sights as the celebrated Palacio de Pena. Another tour showcases northern Portugal's world-famous port producing region, and guides you through the wineries, vineyards, and other major sights of this picturesque area.Traveling to southern Portugal? A handy map leads you to the beaches of Algarve and its various recreational areas, sun-washed towns, and scenic villages. Portugal's atmospheric islands, Madeira and the Azores, are depicted in separate chapters that exult their many wonders, including Madeira wine and the Azores' spectacular volcanic scenery. If Portugal is your destination, here is your most practical and easy-to-use travelling companion.
