Rail Holidays in Portugal

O ne of Britain’s oldest allies, Portugal is a delightful country to explore by train. The capital, Lisbon, is situated dramatically along the banks of the River Tagus and has a wealth of history and culture. In the north of the country, Porto is a vibrant port-city on the River Douro and a gateway to the wine and port producing Douro Valley. If you want to venture further south, the sun-drenched Algarve has beaches, cliffs and golf courses.
