Trip Summary

  • Lisbon

    Lisbon, a dazzling city stretching along the Tagus river, makes an enchanting European capital. Its nucleus, an ancient fortress, is now circled by neighborhoods drenched with medieval charm. Handcrafts - from embroidery to leatherwork - are peddled right on the streets. At night, yellow electric tramcars continue to wind their way up and down the hills to the sound of traditional Fado songs. Ample opportunities exist for seeing popular celebrations, for shopping, and for enjoying the nightlife along the riverbank.

    Visit Alfama, Baixa and Chiado, Se de Lisboa, Sao Roque Church, Mosteiro dos Jeronimos, Torre de Belem, Discoveries Monument, Museu Nacional dos Coches, Parque das Nacos, Elevador de Santa Justa, Tram 28 and so much more!

  • Evora

    Evora is the main city in the Alentejo region of Portugal. Boasting a rich history which spans 5,000 years, Evora is known for its agricultural importance as well, as olive groves and wineries thrive just outside the city center. Evora`s long and storied history was recognized by UNESCO in 1986, when the organization named the entire historic center of Evora a World Heritage Site. Evora is also a key academic city in Portugal: It is home to one of the county's most famous universities. Explore the University of Evora, Cathedral of Evora, Roman Temple, Roman Baths, Praca do Giraldo, Royal Palace, Igreja de Santo Antao, Igreja da Misericordia, Chapel of Bones, and so much more!

  • Alentejo Golden Plains

    The rolling hills and lush valleys of the Alentejo`s Golden Plains region are a traveler`s delight. The people who call this region of Portugal home live life at a slower pace, and it is easy for tourists to feel at home in such a warm and relaxing environment. First inhabited during the Iron Age, the Romans and Moors left their distinct footprints on this area before it fell under Portuguese control in the 13th century. Ranging from modern commercial and industrial centers to sleepy hamlets, the towns of the Golden Plains offer more than just history -- they offer hospitality and lots of heart. Visit Beja Cathedral, Beja Castle, Roman Villa of Pisoes, Alvito Castle, Moura Castle, Moura/Barrancos Special Protection Area, Lake Alqueva, Amieira Marina, Portel Castle, and so much more!

  • Algarve East

    Algarve East, consisting of the cities Faro and Tavira as well as the resort towns of Altura and Monte Gordo, seamlessly combines relaxation with entertainment for a fun beach vacation that everyone in the family can enjoy. The old-world charm of Faro and Tavira is entrancing and can leave travelers wandering aimlessly down the beautiful cobbled streets of the medieval quarters. Altura and Monte Gordo are resorts that are just now being discovered by American tourists after decades serving vacationers from Europe. Visit Faro Cathedral, Faro Marina, Igreja do Carmo, Igreja da Misericordia, Faro Island, Culatra Island, Cabo de Santa Maria, Barreta Island, Tavira Castle, Roman Bridge of Tavira, Praia da Altura, Monte Gordo Beach, and so much more!

  • Faro

    Faro is the gateway to the Algarve, the region in Portugal most popular with tourists. With over 300 days of sunshine each year, the weather in Faro is postcard-perfect for enjoying fun in the sun and sightseeing. The town has been settled continuously since the fourth century before the Common Era, and that long, storied history can be seen from the marina to the cathedral. Visit Faro Cathedral, Igreja do Carmo, Palacete Belmarco, Faro Island, Cabo de Santa Maria, Igreja da Misericordia, Arco da Vila, Arco da Repouso, Muralhas de Faro and so much more!
