Medieval Walls, Sunny Vineyards, and the Age of Discoveries - Lisbon - 2019 ( 7 Hours )
Lisbon, Portugal | 04 Jun 2019

  • Meals: Lunch
  • Recommended Ages: All Ages
  • Activity Level: Easy
  • Experience(s): Food & Wine • Culture, History & Arts • Sightseeing

Immerse yourself in Portuguese wine country and medieval village life—without missing the best of the capital. We’ll begin with a short drive from port in Lisbon to Óbidos, one of the best-preserved walled towns in Europe. This eminently charming medieval burg features tidy narrow streets lined with immaculate whitewashed houses, most of them fronted with brilliant flowers. We’ll enjoy a walking tour and stop for a spot of ginjinha; the Óbidos flair on this typical Portuguese cherry liqueur is to serve it in a small chocolate cup.

We’ll next transfer to the 17th-century Quinta de Santana Wine Estate. Located in a fertile agricultural region, this landmark property boasts not only rolling orchards and vineyards, but interesting historic markers including a chapel dating to 1630. We’ll enjoy a tasting here followed by a lunch of local specialties, such as goat cheese in filo with pumpkin jam, local sirloin, and pear poached in muscatel.

Upon arrival back in Lisbon, we’ll conclude our day with a driving tour of the neighborhood of Belém, emblematic of Portugal’s period of maritime exploration. Wealth from the expeditions built the richly detailed Manueline-style monuments, typified in the Jerónimos Monastery and the Tower of Belém, both UNESCO World Heritage Sites. We’ll pass through the city center, if time allows, on our way back to the ship.

Suggested Attire/Walking Notes: Casual attire with comfortable walking shoes.

This tour will take you on a half-day journey to visit the city of Guimarães. In the city of Guimarães you will enjoy its beauty and simplicity. This is the "cradle" of Portuguese nationality and the first important city of the kingdom of Portugal with references that illustrate more than 800 years of history. In fact this was the birthplace of the first King of Portugal, Afonso Henriques, who against his own mother';s will, initiated the Portuguese nation starting from the castle on the top of the highest hill of Guimarães. The Dukes of Bragança Palace, built in the 1st half of the 15th century, stands out for its well-known Pastrana tapestries, portraying important events related to the maritime discoveries of the 15th century; its porcelain collection from the Indian Company; the Portuguese ceramics; the Flemish tapestries, amongst many other valuable pieces. Then, walking through the narrow streets of the historical center, you’ll enter the beautiful square of Oliveira (classified as a Heritage Cultural UNESCO site) and you’ll be tempted to stop for a cup of coffee in one of its street cafes.

Explore Porto at your leisure during your 6-hour sightseeing tour via private car (morning departures only). Plan out your own perfectly personalized itinerary beforehand or customize it with the help of your knowledgeable driver, for a day you’re sure to remember.

Suggested Itinerary:

During this private tour you will be able to experience all the charm and history of Porto. You will start with a panoramic drive towards the trendiest and most cultural areas of the city called Boavista and Foz. This is where some of the best museums of the city are located (like Serralves) and also where the Atlantic meets the Douro River providing the ideal location for the upper class residences.

Once you reach the historical city center, considered World Heritage by UNESCO, you will have more than enough time to explore the Church of São Francisco. This old simple gothic Franciscan church is now known as "the cave of gold" in an astonishing exhibit of wealth and power. Right next door you'll find the Stock Exchange Palace with incredible granite work and magnificent neo-Arab influences. On your way up to the Cathedral you'll still have time to admire the interesting glazed tiles of the São Bento Railway station. After a visit to the Cathedral (12th century) you will be able to admire the river Douro and all of the port wine lodges that brought fame and fortune to the city.

Whatever you decide, you are able to set your own pace and itinerary with a private car and driver at your disposal compliments of Virtuoso Voyages and your travel advisor.
