    Continental Portugal has a climate with Atlantic and Mediterranean influences.
    The coast is always more temperate, subjected to the oceanic mildness while the climate becomes drier when you go inland. The North of Portugal is much more rainy and cold in winter while the Algarve in the south enjoys a very mild microclimate. The summer is hot in Portugal, so we advice to stay on the coast during this period.
    - Spring : all regions are pleasant at this period, with the explosion of flowering and an extraordinary light.
    - Summer : Warm and dry inland, we recommend the tours on the coastline, more temperate and ideal for wonderful swimming.
    - Autumn : The beginning of autumn is very pleasant from North to South. After the rains at the end of October and beginning of November, the southern part (from Lisbon to the Algarve) benefits from the "little summer of Saint Martin" also called the 2nd spring. It is a very beautiful period, with great light and the first oranges.
    - Winter : The Algarve benefits from an exceptional micro-climate. The almond trees in bloom from January give a particularly pleasant touch to the region. From December to early March it benefits from exceptional light.
    . We recommend the weather websites: https://www.climatestotravel.com/climate/portugal

    . A good option is to buy a “country Sim card” in a phone shop, to get on the local network ( local phone numbers and internet access )
