Top things to do and eat in Viseu – Portugal

Version française A pretty little city up hill for a 1 day trip We only had one day to spend in Viseu but we enjoyed a lot being there, discovering its christmas market, parks, its walk almost all around town from the rampart… You might not be able to see the christmas market if you’re around in summer or spring, though if you have one extra day to spend in this region, Viseu really is worth it ! zoom on portugal and on...

Top things to do and eat in Amarante – Portugal

The reason why it’s taking me so long is because I don’t know how to write the story… (and now you can imagine that in english it’s even more difficult for me). This day starts in Sam Neua with 2 very nice...
