Trip Summary
2 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!



2 nights in Cascais

Former fishing village, Cascais is a cosmopolitan suburb of Lisbon and one of the richest municipalities in Portugal. Due to the favourable weather and to the excellent beaches, Cascais become a very popular vacation spot. It is a gateway for those who wish to visit Lisbon and its environments. With more than 10 golf courses Cascais is also an important golf destination. International tennis and motorcycling events take place here each year.



1 nights in Costa Azul

The Costa Azul is located less than an hour from Lisbon, Portugal`s capital, but the geographic diversity of this region will leave you feeling as if you have traveled a world away. Driving toward Setubal, the provincial capital, the first town in the region you will pass is Palmela. Semi-rural and built on the foothills of the Arrabida Mountains, Palmela is one of the more beautiful and luxurious hillside villages in Portugal. Setubal is located on Setubal Bay and the estuary of the Sado River, and throughout modern history it has been an important regional fishing and trading center. Forty minutes southwest of Setubal, also on Setubal Bay, is the resort town of Sesimbra. Sesimbra is well-known for its beaches and also for its delicious seafood restaurants.

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 country`s most famous universities.

1 nights in Fatima

Fatima has welcomed Catholic pilgrims and visitors of all faiths for 100 years. The legend of Fatima began in 1917, when three shepherd children, Lucia, Jacinta and Francisco, witnessed a series of Marian apparitions, culminating in a spectacle witnessed by 70,000 people that many labeled `a miracle`. The area where the children saw the Virgin Mary is now called the Sanctuary, and many chapels and basilicas are located here.

2 nights in Nazare

Perhaps the most famous fishing village on the Atlantic Coast of Portugal, Nazare earned its place in history over 800 years ago, when the story of the `Miracle of Nazare` was first told. A small chapel was built where the Miracle occurred, which still stands today. The sea is very integral to the culture and history of Nazare. Nazare Beach and the beaches to the north and south offer a multitude of vacation options, in particular some of the best surfing and bodyboarding in all of Portugal. Let all of your cares melt away in scenic Nazare.

The University of Coimbra is the focal point of the city; since its beginnings in the 12th century it has become the most prestigious university in the Portuguese-speaking world, and it is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Porto (also known as Oporto) is the second city of Portugal, and a hub for the northern part of the country in terms of arts, entertainment, culture and shopping. Previously conquered by the Celts, Romans and Moors, Porto has been a jewel in the Portuguese royal crown for nearly a millennium. The city offers art treasures, medieval cathedrals, museums, shopping, and delicious food and drink, all while tourists enjoy breathtaking views of the River Douro, which empties into the Atlantic just three miles from the city center.
