Travel & Culture
Portugal has an old fashioned charm with medieval castles and picture-perfect villages scattered over meandering coastlines and flower covered hillsides. The country’s capital, Lisbon, and its northern rival Porto are magical places, with riverside views, cobbled streets, and rattling trams framed by looming cathedrals. When you are ready to relax, the beauty of the Iberian Peninsula’s sun kissed beaches offer the perfect break from soccer and sightseeing.
Thank you Global Team Events for a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Portugal. Our team absorbed as much knowledge as they could from the world class coaches, and the facilities were top notch. Other countries get more publicity, but Portugal is truly a gem.
