Trip Summary
2 nights in Alentejo North East

The cities, towns and villages that comprise the Alentejo`s North East region are a treat for travelers seeking a rustic getaway in an area known for its decadent olive oil and wine, clay dolls and Estremoz marble, Elvas plums and the hearty soup acorda. Quiet yet exciting, the North East offers dozens of must-see attractions for every type of traveler. Before the Portuguese crown seized control of the North East, Romans and Moors ruled the land, and their influence can be seen at monuments such as the Roman Villa of Ammaia, the Roman Villa of Torre de Palma, and the Moorish-inspired Marvao Castle. Pre-history buffs will be excited to see the Anta da Aldeia da Mata megalith in person (as it is perhaps Portugal`s most famous). Those in love with nature will appreciate the region`s numerous valleys, great for biking, as well as the hiking trails of the Sao Mamede mountains.


Recommended Stay: At least 3 nights
Must See`s:
Avis Castle, Sinagoga de Castelo de Vide, Anta da Aldeia da Mata, Forte de Santa Luzia, Estremoz Castle, Evoramonte Castle, City Walls of Marvao, Roman bridge over the Ribeira Grande, Portalegre Cathedral, Praca de Touros de Sousel, Mosteiro de Santo Agostinho, Rossio Marques de Pombal, and so much more!



2 nights in 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.


Recommended Stay: At least 3 nights
Must See`s:
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!



3 nights in Lisbon

Lisbon, a dazzling city stretching along 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 in the sound of traditional Fado songs. Ample opportunities exist for seeing popular celebrations, for shopping, and for enjoying the nightlife along the riverbank.

Recommended Stay: At least 3 nights
Must See`s: 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!
