We are already at #4 on Kitty's Top 5 European Destinations. And today we will be checking out the fabulous Portugal. It's no surprise that Portugal has made the list, as it is one of the 20 most visited countries in the world - and with good reason. It has a very mild climate all year round and a haven for sun seekers in the summer months. But there is a lot more to Portugal than you see on the cover of a package sun holiday brochure. Portugal is a country of immense history and fascinating culture showcasing the heart of old Europe. It has castles, forts and relics to rival Spain and Italy. It is a country waiting to be explored. Most people fly in to Lisbon airport or Faro airport, and you can do lots of travelling around from either. A rental car is the perfect way to see what Portugal has on offer.

Up next on Kitty's Top 5 European Destinations is Italy, and I am a little daunted at the idea of writing about it. I have been there many times and each time the number of places on my must see list just keeps on growing. What I really want to do is to hire a car and drive all the over country, going from Sicily in summer, the whole way north to the Brenner pass in winter, I want to eat, drink, swim, ski, cycle, tour, chill, party and just live the whole Italian experience!
So for installment number 2 on Kitty's Top 5 Summer Sun destinations in Europe, we are going to explore a little bit of France. It is one of my personal favorites because you can mix beach and culture, amazing food, more-ish wines and a great cup of coffee.
