Spend a week exploring the best of the beautiful Mediterranean country with visits to Lisbon, Coimbra, Tomar, Fatima and Porto

If your idea of a holiday is more than plonking yourself on a sunlounger with a book for a week, look no further than this seven-day trip to the stunning scenery, beautiful beaches and enchanting medieval cities of Portugal.

Your transport and accommodation will all be taken care of by our partner Costsaver, allowing you the freedom to explore the very best of the Mediterranean gem the way you want to, and simply relax and enjoy your holiday.

Fly to Lisbon from the UK, where you will travel by luxury air-conditioned coach with expert travel directors, who will help you discover the best that Portugal has to offer. Starting with a three-night stay in the Portuguese capital, you'll then tour the country, stopping first in Fatima, a famous religious site and Tomar, with its Renaissance architecture.

After a tour of Coimbra, from where you can head to the seaside resort of Aveiro, you'll travel to the banks of the Douro river to stay in the historic Porto and its famous wine cellars. You'll have plenty of time to explore the town and all its delights over two nights, during which you'll have the chance to take an optional cruise along the Douro or just enjoy the bustling food and drink scene.

Itinerary

  1. Day
    1
    Arrive in Lisbon
    Lisboa, Portugal

    Pastel and azulejo-clad façades line Lisbon's narrow streets which ramble across and over its seven hills from St. George Castle to the Tagus River. Gaze over the Portuguese capital's terracotta rooftops, soaking up its small-town atmosphere before meeting your Travel Director and companheiros for a glimpse of what lies ahead. Tonight you'll join your Travel Director and fellow travellers for dinner and sample some of the local favourites that you'll encounter throughout your journey across Portugal.

    Lisbon sightseeing
    Lisboa, Portugal

    Join a Local Specialist for a sightseeing tour. See the Hieronymite Monastery and the medieval quarter before taking in views of the alabaster-white Belém Tower and the Monument to the Discoveries before taking the rest of the day to explore on your own. Hop on one of Lisbon's signature trams rolling along the city's cinematic hillsides and you'll quickly discover leafy squares and countless corner tascas for a quick coffee and pasteis de nata fix. Consider joining an Optional Experience to Portugal's Golden Triangle of Cascais, Estoril and Sintra to see some of the country's most extravagant palaces during your free afternoon. This evening, perhaps join an optional traditional Portuguese dinner amidst the heart-wrenching, melancholic sounds of the fado.

    Lisbon free day
    Lisboa, Portugal

    Explore the enchanting Portuguese capital your way. The secret to living a long life lies in eating a big breakfast, but as you'll come to discover in Lisbon that may extend to a big lunch and dinner too. Spend the day indulging in a culinary adventure on your own or choose an optional visit to the fishing village of Nazaré, set on a wide bay overlooking the Atlantic. This Optional Experience also includes a visit to Óbidos where you'll have time to explore the medieval walled city with its whitewashed houses and cobblestone lanes. Aside from its obvious charm and history that pre-dates the founding of Portugal, Óbidos is also home to the delightfully decadent Ginja cherry liqueur served up in tiny chocolate cups. Don't go home without a taste or two!

    Fátima, Tomar and Coimbra
    Coimbra, Portugal

    Leave Lisbon behind, bound for Fátima, the site of a celebrated religious miracle where three young shepherds are said to have seen an apparition of the Virgin Mary in 1917. It is here that you'll rub shoulders with visiting pilgrims who have come to pray and seek divine guidance. Explore the Basilica and Sanctuary on your own before heading to the Templar city of Tomar, a beautiful reminder of Portuguese Renaissance. Later, arrive in Coimbra for an orientation drive. This evening, enjoy dinner in your hotel with your travel companions.

Don't leave town without sampling the delicious Ovos Moles sweets for which Aveiro is famous, then head north to Porto. You'll arrive in time for a sightseeing tour with a Local Specialist who'll reveal the treasures in the city's UNESCO-listed medieval Ribeira Quarter, the port and the remarkable bridges that span the Douro River. With an evening to do as you wish, you may be tempted to head to the water's edge and one of the city's Port wine cellars for a tasting and insights into the centuries-old tradition of local Port production.
