Book Description

March 15 2011 Rick Steves' Portugal
You can count on Rick Steves to tell you what you 'really' need to know when traveling in Portugal. With this guide, you'll explore this relaxed country at the western edge of Europe. Tour Lisbon's cobbled lanes and grand squares, reminders of Portugal's seafaring glory days. Step back into history at the palaces in Sintra and the bone chapel of Évora. Soak up the sun at the Algarve beach of your dreams. When evening comes, enjoy a dinner of fresh seafood stew, and raise a glass of port wine in a toast. Rick's candid, humorous advice will guide you to good-value hotels and restaurants. He'll help you plan where to go and what to see, depending on the length of your trip. You'll get up-to-date recommendations about what is worth your time and money. More than just reviews and directions, a Rick Steves guidebook is a tour guide in your pocket.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad - not a fan of hand-drawn maps Nov. 30 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The historical information provided for each part of the book was awesome. I really liked how he would recommend certain places to visit and tell you how to get there - but also include a short story about the place. The only thing we had a bit of trouble with was that all of the maps were hand-drawn. It was neat but, in the end, we ended up picking up a regular map from a local tourist office.

The font size and type used for this type was very easy on my eyes. Liked that feature as well.

Overall, we will consult this book again in the future (for the historical lessons) but will probably use another source for directions.

5.0 out of 5 stars VERY GOOD Nov. 16 2013

As usual, everything you could possibly need to know before travelling to a new destination. I never go on a trip without one of his guide But now I'm off to Peru and how sad, he does not cover South America.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice overview June 13 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a highlight-reel of a vacation guide. The maps are sparse and the attractions reviewed are selective. Still, I think Steves makes solid choices. It would be difficult to plan a vacation based on this book alone, but it's a fun read. I also bought the Rough Guide to Portugal and this was my favourite of the two.
