Travelling by car is a safe and easy way to discover Portugal. Travelling between main cities is possible by highway as the highway network reaches main cities. But for visiting not so touristy villages you will have to use local roads. Local roads are, generally speaking, in good condition, although they may be narrow and winding, mainly in the interior and mountainous areas. Speed limits in Portugal are:
. Inside villages: 50km
. Outside villages: 90km
. Highway: 120km
It is mandatory to use safety belt and proper seat for children. Talking on the mobile while driving is not allowed. Traffic inside some cities may be chaotic and parking difficult. :-)
