On the day of your tour through Portugal’s countryside, either enjoy a pickup from your Lisbon hotel or meet your guide in central Lisbon. Aboard your luxury coach, begin by crossing the Tagus River over the 25th of April Bridge. Then, sit back and admire views of the verdant Portuguese countryside as you head about 81 miles (130 km) southeast to the storied town of Évora.
Arrive in the Alentejo region’s capital and step off your coach for a delightful walking tour. Alongside your guide, discover this UNESCO World Heritage town’s historic attractions and see its distinct landmarks. Visit the remnants of the Roman Temple, the Bones Chapel, the Romanesque Gothic cathedral and Évora's university. Then, spend some time on your own wandering freely through Évora's alluring walkways before stopping for lunch at a local Portuguese restaurant (included).
After lunch, hop back into your coach and proceed through the beautiful wine region of the Alentejo. Cruise into Azeitão and take a break at a famous winery. Here, take a guided tour of the winery and learn about the varietals it’s been making for more than a century. Then, indulge in a wine tasting that includes sips of the acclaimed Moscatel de Setúbal. Finally, hop back in your minivan and journey back to your hotel in Lisbon where your tour ends.
