Day 1: Porto
Our first stop on this adventure is Porto. Portugal’s second largest metropolis and one of Europe’s most charismatic cities. Porto is a beautiful and historically-rich city, brimming with medieval relics, extravagant churches, and impressive architecture. The famous port wine won’t be the only thing you remember it for. We will see it all through our official tour of the city. After we’re done exploring you will have free time to enjoy the city as you wish.
Day 2: Porto & Guimarães
The following day you can enjoy a complimentary breakfast and experience Porto at its fullest by using your free time to visit any of the many small cafes and restaurants that serve up some of the best homemade food you’ll ever taste! Also, remember to cross the river to Vilanova de Gaia, home to all the main Port Wine wineries, they all offer affordable tours including wine tastings at the end. If you wish to explore more of Portugal, feel free to join our optional day trip to Guimarães! Your guides will give you more information on the day.
Day 3: Lisbon
After enjoying a complimentary breakfast, we’ll starting making our way towards our next location – Lisbon! The capital offers all the delights you’d expect of Portugal’s star attraction. Yet, with half the fuss of other European capitals. You will have some free time for lunch before going on an official guided tour. The tour will walk us through the city to see the quaint museums, gothic cathedrals and majestic monasteries. Even though these sights are true beauties, the real delights of discovery lie in wandering the narrow lanes of Lisbon’s lovely backstreets! After the tour, those who want to explore more can use their free time to catch a ride on one of the typical yellow trams, and visit the music-filled Barrio Alto neighborhood.
Day 4: Lisbon & Sintra
On our fourth day we will enjoy yet another complimentary breakfast. Those who want to explore more can use their free time to head to the small, magical town of Sintra with us. The town is home to two spectacular castles and a rich history behind them both. Spend your day exploring the cobbled streets, charming cafes and delicious Portuguese cuisine. This day trip is included in our package, but is optional if you prefer to spend more time in Lisbon.
Day 5: Lisbon & Madrid
After finishing breakfast at our hostel we will start our way back to Madrid stopping at Belém, home of the famous “pasteis de nata”. These egg tart pastries date back over 300 years to Belém, located west of Lisbon. They were created by monks in the Jerónimos Monastery, and are now a sought out dessert by visitors and locals alike. After that we will cross the “25 de Abril” Bridge to enjoy the amazing view from the Cristo Rei. After those last pictures taken, we will head to Madrid.
