Abrantes has loads on offer. You could stay a week or two here and not get bored. If you want to take in as much as possible in this energetic metropolis, a rental car is a must. Bear in mind that driving in big cities often goes hand in hand with tight streets and even tighter parking spaces. Don't stress though, because a small car like a compact will make this a lot less daunting. If you're aiming to venture out of the city and take in some of the cliffs that Abrantes is known for, you'll probably prefer a vehicle with more power. A mid-size or full-size SUV will get you around comfortably.
Sometimes it's all about the journey, which makes choosing the right car important. If you're planning an amazing road trip around Abrantes, a roomy SUV could be your perfect match. If you're looking for a fantastic bargain and plan on doing a lot of city driving, a budget compact is hard to beat. All you have to do is work out what suits you best, throw your bags in the trunk, and rack up those miles.
