Meet a driver at your Lisbon hotel or the cruise port for a morning departure—the exact meeting time can be tailored to your schedule and preferences. Begin the 86 mile (139 km.) trip from Lisbon to Tomar, a picturesque city that was once the seat of the Order of the Knights Templar.

The first stop of the day is the Convento da Ordem de Cristo, or Convent of the Order of Christ, which was founded in 1118. Learn the story of the Knights Templar as you explore the spectacular convent, which combines a range of architectural styles to dramatic effect.

Pause for lunch in Tomar, then continue to Alcobaca, at 41-mile (67-km) drive towards the coast. In Alcobaca, you’ll have the afternoon to explore the Monastery of Alcobaca, which was founded by King Alfonso I in the 12th century. See the tomb of King Pedro I of Portugal alongside that of his murdered lover, Ines de Castro, and take in the intricate detail work of the Cistercian Gothic landmark.

Following your time at the Monastery of Alcobaca, begin the 75-mile (122-km) return trip to Lisbon, where this tour concludes with drop-off at your original departure point.
