From medieval castles and monasteries, cobblestone streets in quaint villages, to the beautiful golden beaches on the Atlantic, Portugal is an amazing destination with so much to discover. This itinerary will take you through the two most important cities, Lisbon and Porto, as both have so much to offer in terms of culture, gastronomy, history and beauty. The first stop will be in the capital of Portugal, Lisbon, immediately enchanting you with its exquisite azulejos tiles, dominating baroque architecture, and characteristic tram cars rambling past on cobblestone streets. The celebrated neighbourhoods of the city, such as Baixa, Alfama and Bairro Alto, make up a colourful, patchwork maze just waiting to be discovered. Lisbon is renowned for its culinary delights, from pastel de nata to bacalhau, as well as the melancholic and expressive Fado music, a tradition born right on there the city's streets. From here, you can visit nearby Sintra, with its beautiful castles and palaces, as well as the quaint coastal fishing town of Cascais. Depart for northern Portugal and the city of Porto, a Unesco world heritage site. The city, framed by the D. Luis I bridge, is filled with a kaleidoscope of colours, medieval streets, decadent buildings, fisherman’s boats and buzzing atmospheres. Vila Nova de Gaia, just across the river and facing Porto, offers up plenty of opportunities to sample a nice glass of port, the famous fortified wine for which the area is known. The nearby Douro Valley is an enchanting wilderness, with beautiful landscapes as you cross the Douro river and travel through the endless terraced vineyards and quaint villages. This renowned wine region, in addition to producing port wine, has excellent red and white wine. To accompany your wine, you will enjoy the dining scene here that is the culinary capital of Portugal.
