Budget for your internship in Portugal
Despite the economic increase of Portugal these last few years, the country is still cheap. We advise you to anticipate a budget of 750€ per month to face your accommodation, your food and your trips around the country. First advantage : wherever you are in Europe, you will find airlines to go to Porto, Faro or Lisbon !
What you need to know
The Portugal is not the country of masonry : stop to the clichés ! Portugal is considered as the country of surfing, festivals and churches. Portuguese people are really welcoming when you are doing the effort to speak their language. They are not very happy to hear people talking to them in Spanish. And we don’t blame them for Euro 2016, we will take our revenge in Euro 2020 !
