1. Porto – Full of Charm and History

Top 3 Places to Learn Portuguese

Portugal’s second most important city is old, full of charm and reveals a medieval heart. Carved in two by the Douro river, downtown Porto is a world heritage site and offers faded sophistication with quaint cafes, restaurants and houses. Whilst the opposite side, where the river meets the sea, gives you one of the best contemporary art museums in Europe – the “Museu Serralves”, and beaches with cafes and bars on floating jetties.

In the historical quarter – Ribeira – you can find São Francisco Church, known for its lavish baroque interior with ornate gilded carvings, and the 19th-century Palácio de Bolsa, formerly a stock market, which was built to impress potential European investors. Port Wine is born in the Douro Valley, but it is the city of Porto that gives the name to the wine because it is where the wine ages and from where it is shipped to all over the world. Therefore a visit to the Port wine cellars should not be missed during any trip to Porto.

Improve your Portuguese in a small group setting and enjoy a glass of Port wine with us in the heart of Porto.

2. Lisbon – The City of the Moment

Top 3 Places to Learn Portuguese

Lisbon has, in recent years, developed a reputation for being one of the coolest cities in Europe, and a foodie heaven. It certainly offers a great night out, with a wide range of hot spots to party the night away, from classic nightclubs in Cais do Sodré to traditional fado houses. Dining options have exploded in Lisbon and while bacalhau à Brás (shredded cod with onions, eggs and potatoes; a Bairro Alto original) is never far, Lisbon’s seaside position means a bounty of fresh seafood (octopus, tuna, monkfish, shrimp, sardines etc) is constantly available and offered in Lisbon’s Michelin-starred restaurants as well as in its countless corner “tascas” taverns.

However, Lisbon still retains it’s history and culture at every turn with century-old wooden trams and iron funiculars an intrinsic part of the cities transportation system. Its trademark seven hills overlook the Rio Tejo and offer a postcard-perfect panorama of the city’s cobbled alleyways, ancient ruins and white-domed cathedrals.

Come to Lisbon and immerse yourself in Portuguese culture.  As you peel the layers of this amazing city it will leave you wanting to come back for more.
