Portugal Upgraded

8 days, Lisbon to Porto

Portugal was once the capital of one of the largest empires in the world and it’s here that the sun is bright, the living is easy, and you’ll dream of the food and wine long after leaving this vibrant place. On this trip, explore a handful of UNESCO World Heritage sites, encounter history on visits to Sintra and the Knights Templar, and devour a custard tart as you wander the narrow alleyways in Porto. As you continue on, meet interesting locals from port wine makers to Fado folk singers, and learn what this seemingly small, but scenic country has to offer its travellers.
