If you need inspiration for your next long-weekend holiday, look no further. Today we share our top 15 getaways from Belgium (or elsewhere) by plane or train.
Spring is here and our thoughts are turning to visiting Europe’s best gardens. Today we share photos of our 10 favourite gardens in Europe.
The Romantic, Mogul-style, Monserrate Palace was the third and final palace we visited, in UNESCO designated Sintra, Portugal, and it seemed we saved the best for last.
High on a hilltop, above Sintra, the multi-coloured turrets of Pena National Palace can be seen from as far as Lisbon on a clear day. Pena’s dramatic architecture has landed it on the UNESCO World Heritage sites list and made it one of the Seven Wonders of Portugal. For me though, it was the woodland garden of Pena, that stole the show.
With its brightly painted tile walls and elaborate mural ceilings, the Sintra National Palace, is well worth exploring on a day-trip from Lisbon, Portugal.
Lisbon, Portugal is heaven for photographers, with photo inspiration in every hand-painted tile and misty alleyway. From the dramatic architecture of the Belem to the bustling crowds in the Chiado, our entire group had their cameras clicking furiously.
Today we take a photo walk through beautiful Lisbon, Portugal, while we admire the colourful azulejos, or tiles, the adorn the city’s buildings.
