Overnight in Lisbon
1st highlight: City tour of Lisbon
After breakfast we start our first day with a city tour of Lisbon: the Castelo de São Jorge, the great Rossio Square, the fairytale cathedral Igreja de Santa Maria Maior and the National Museum of Ancient Art with its unique collection of paintings and statues.
Then we continue to stroll through the districts of the village, including the picturesque Chiado. This district is best known for its lively streets with the numerous shops that invite you to stroll and its wonderful theaters, which are often located in historical monuments.

2nd highlight: District "Alfama"
We follow the cobbled streets of the old town to the charming Alfama district, which is the oldest district in Lisbon. Due to its central location, it was the only district that survived the great earthquake of 1755 almost unscathed. Typical are the narrow, labyrinthine lanes and the local people's laundry hanging across the streets.

3rd highlight: free time
In the afternoon you get to enjoy some free time in the city. If you need tips, you can ask our guide.

1st highlight: Sintra
We drive through the pine-covered hills of the Serra de Sintra. The somewhat cooler climate of this region inspired the Portuguese kings to build their breathtaking palaces and castles here. Once in the small town, we now have the whole day to marvel at the magnificent houses and impressive sights. We come to the city palace Palacio Nacional, which is considered the symbol of the city. With its red roofs and tall conical chimneys, it can be seen from afar and is an ideal orientation point to not get lost in the streets. Another impressive structure is the Pena Palace. With its colorful facade, romantic architectural style and picturesque surroundings, you feel like you're in a Disney movie.

2nd highlight: Cabo da Roca
In the evening we drive to the westernmost point of the European continent Cabo da Roca, which is considered one of the most magical places in Portugal. Here we have a breathtaking view of the sea, the vastness of which inspired the Portuguese to discover new countries. Finally we drive back to Lisbon in the light of the setting sun on the coast of Portugal.

1st highlight: Évora city tour
Évora was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1986 and is also called the "White City". It delights its visitors with monumental churches, historical squares, gleaming white houses and medieval streets that give the place a romantic flair. Today we are discovering a city that emerged from the most diverse cultures.

2nd highlight: wine tasting
After the city tour we will visit one of the beautiful wineries in the region and taste the different aromatic wines. With a lovely red wine in hand, we enjoy these wonderful moments in the middle of the country's nature.

3rd highlight: Arraiolos
In the afternoon we drive back to Lisbon and reach the small town of Arraiolos. Here we visit the beautiful castle of the place and also get to know the tradition of the hand-made Arraiolos carpets.

After breakfast we take the express train along the fields to Porto and explore the Livraria Lello library in the beautiful historic city center, which served as a template for the world-famous Harry Potter books and films.
Following the narrow streets, we visit the world-famous church "Igreja São Francisco", which is very extensively decorated with golden wood carvings. Right next door is the Stock Exchange Palace, which enchants every visitor to the city with its fantastic granite work. We continue our tour to the river "Douro" in the center of this beautiful old town, where we can admire one of the famous landmarks - the Ponte Dom Luís I bridge.
We will end this eventful day with a visit to a local winery, where we will taste delicious wine, among other things.
