Let us show you some of the highlights:
Lisbon, city of 7 hills: Has been the capital of Portugal since 1255. From the Phoenicians, Greeks, Carthaginians, Celts, Romans, Moors, and varying medieval kingdoms both the city & it’s architecture have a uniquely blended personality found only on the Iberian Peninsula. Both modern and ancient Lisbon exudes culture & interests in an open & easy manner.
Sintra, a fairy tale: The magic of Sintra! From Lisbon to Sintra day trip to this fairy tale mountain hosts a small hamlet so charming it will make you believe that fairies still exist. The special micro climate turns Mediterranean landscape into a lush hill of nature. Dotted with grand estates, palaces, picnic grounds, convents and public gardens there are so many sites to see here a full day is barely enough.
Óbidos medieval town: Opera, chocolate, romance and a medieval village full of artisan shops and quaint restaurants. This is the Obidos tour. Enter the fortified walls of this well-preserved village and you feel as if you have walked back in time. Originally established by the Romans, then settled by the Moors, then freed under the first Christian conquest and later given as a honeymoon gift from a young king to his young bride, Obidos’ walls echo the ages.
Nazaré fishing village: On a cliff overlooking the town stands a commemoration chapel built to honor a miraculous intervention in 1182 by the Virgin Mary in saving the life of the 12th-century Portuguese knight. The views from this lookout are fabulous! Today Nazaré is a charming beach town that boasts world-record big waves and where daily seafood is pulled by the local fisherman’s nets.
Évora & Monsaraz medieval towns – Romans, Celts, cork, pottery and wine tasting: Two medieval towns wrapped in Roman walls, surrounded by vineyards, olive and cork trees, and rich in ancient history is a site not to be missed! Of course in one of Portugal’s top 3 wine regions you must attend at least one wine tasting!
