Portugal in Depth

About Portugal

This vacation shows you all of Portugal at a relaxed pace, thanks to the well-planned two-night stopovers in Lisbon, Oporto, and the Algarve. Start and end in Lisbon and see the interior and almost the entire coastline of Portugal. Guided sightseeing in Lisbon, Oporto, and Evora includes Jeronimos Monastery, the Stock Exchange with its Arabian Hall, the Ossuary Chapel, and many other must-see sights. Also included are visits to Obidos, Fatima, and to the famous Sandeman & Co Port wine cellar to taste the Port wine; the Roman ruins of Conimbriga with its excellent museum, Vila Real, and Belmonte, birthplace of Pedro Alvares Cabral, the discoverer of Brazil, where you’ll enjoy a visit to the Jewish Museum and a traditional olive oil tasting. On the Algarve an excursion to the Promontory of Sagres near Cape St. Vincent is included, and back in Lisbon, a cocktail and a special farewell dinner with a spectacular panoramic view awaits you at the Varanda restaurant.
