Highlights of Portugal (Porto to Lisbon)

Company : Exodus Travels
Duration: 1 week to 2 weeks
Approx Costs: 1000 to 1250 £ Pound (UK)

Journey from Porto to Lisbon via the UNESCO Douro Valley and heritage sites.

Once a powerful kingdom that dominated the world sea routes, Portugal today is one of the friendliest and most peaceful countries in Europe, though the legacy of its former wealth can still be found in its historic cities. 

Starting from the colourful Porto, the country's second city and a UNESCO site, our journey follows the verdant valleys and rolling hills of the Douro wine region, before heading to the lesser known interior. Here we spend two nights in an authentic rural village for a full immersion in the local traditions and way of living. 

We continue with a visit to other must-see places including Coimbra, the UNESCO Batalha and Alcobaça monasteries, mediaeval Obidos and magnificent Sintra before reaching Lisbon, one of the world’s most enchanting capital cities.
