Bom dia! Tudo bem ? Are you planning to do an internship in Portugal and need some advice before you make your decision? You’ve come to the right place to get all the important information you need to know before deciding if Portugal will be your internship destination! 

Go to Portugal, it’s time to pack your suitcase! 

The climate in Portugal is called Mediterranean. It is sunny almost all year round and the temperatures are mild with little rainfall. If you want sun, this is THE PLACE to go for your internship! If you are going to the north of the country, I would still advise you to bring warm jumpers as the proximity to the Atlantic Ocean brings coolness and humidity. If you go further south, temperatures rarely fall below 10°C even in winter, so bring light jumpers. If you’re going in summer, take light summer clothes with you as temperatures approach 30°C throughout the country. 

Moving to Portugal, cost of living 

The cost of living in Portugal is 35% lower than in France. However, as the salaries of locals are lower than in France, their purchasing power is 44% lower than in France. 

Going to Portugal, an opportunity to have wonderful experiences

In Portugal you will have many experiences to make and things to discover! I advise you to discover all the culinary specialities of this country, especially the pastéis de nata or the Francesinha. You can go and listen to Fado in the establishments recommended by the locals! Talking to the locals will help you develop your language skills at the same time! I also recommend you to go to the markets to discover the products and get a feel for the local customs. 

Going to Portugal means coming back with a lot of memories in your head… and in your suitcase! 

If you go to Portugal, you’ll have a million memories stuck in your head! You will also have the choice of many souvenirs to bring back in your suitcase for your loved ones or for yourself! You can bring back the fabulous azulejos, a bottle of olive oil or some ginjinha. You can also choose to drink Port or Vinho Verde which are very popular wines in Portugal.
