Itinerary
  • Day 1

    Lisbon / Évora

    Departure: 09h00 a.m. On this Tour, we will discover the plains and coast of the Portuguese South. We will pick you up at your Hotel and we will travel through the Alentejo Region. On our way, we will admire beautiful and bucolic landscapes of olive trees, cork oak and vineyards. Then we will reach Evora.

    This little and walled town is classified a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. It is an open-air museum, a mosaic of culture, History and traditions.  Here we will visit the most important monuments: the Roman Temple, the Romanesque-Gothic Cathedral, the Saint Francis Church with its curious Chapel of Bones and the University. We will proceed to the market to discover the richness of natural products used to prepare one of the most appreciated Gastronomies in Portugal. And along this visit, we will also admire the diversity of the local handicraft with cork, ceramic and copper objects. In the afternoon, free time to stroll through these medieval streets. Accommodation in Evora.

  • Day 2

    Evora / Beja / Silves / Lagos

    After some leisure time in Evora, we will drive southward. Beja will be our first stop. Founded by the Romans, Beja is a thriving historical hub, set on the highest point of the surrounding Alentejo plains. Here the highest tower of the Portuguese Medieval castles dominates the town and the Region. After this visit, we will cross small mountains and we will reach the Algarve Region, the beautiful southern coastline of Portugal with a year-round balmy climate.

    By fields of orange trees, we will arrive to Silves, located in the rolling hills of the Northern Algarve. It is an unhurried and charming town, dominated by its red sandstone castle dating back to Moorish times and its stunning gothic Cathedral. We will proceed to the golden sands of the Algarve, passing by Praia da Rocha (Portimão) to Lagos. Accommodation in Lagos.

  • Day 3

    Lagos / Ponta da Piedade / Sagres / St. Vincent Cape / Lagos

    Our Algarve tour will continue through some of the most impressive viewpoints in Portugal. Ponta da Piedade will be the first break. It is a spectacular natural monument overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, a maze of unique formations with heavily weathered cliffs that have been carved into rock pillars of misshapen angles, natural tunnels and hidden grottos.

    Then, we will proceed to Sagres, a charming fishing port, where we will visit the fortress formerly known as the mythical “navigation school”.  We will continue along the cliffs to Saint Vincent Cape, the most westerly point of mainland Europe, where the cruel waves of the Atlantic Ocean pound the massive precipices. And after this amazing journey we will return to Lagos and we will stroll through this cosmopolitan town. Here the marina and the fishing port are famous landmarks, as well as the delicious and fresh dishes. In the afternoon, take your time to explore the city or its beaches by yourself. Accommodation in Lagos.

  • Day 4

    Lagos / Setubal / Arrabida Mountain / Lisbon

    On the 4th day of our tour, we will have time for a last look at the crystal-clear waters of the Atlantic Ocean while traveling along the coast. The return trip to Lisbon will take us by the city of Setubal, considered the heart of the Portuguese sardine industry. Then we will reach the Arrabida Mountain, an important area preserved as Natural Park, with an amazing scenery and unique vegetation at the gates of Lisbon. We will also enjoy a stunning view over the Troia Peninsula. In the end of our amazing trip, we will cross the April 25th Bridge with an impressive view over Lisbon. Drop-off and end of our services (around 06h00 p.m.).
