Lisbon & the Algarve

Duration
9 Days
Prices From:
US$ 834

Explore the Algarve at your own pace on this self-guided Portugal vacation. Spend two nights experiencing the best of Lisbon, then retreat to the beautiful Algarve to enjoy your time at leisure.


This 9-day Portugal vacation lets you experience the essentials of Lisbon, before letting you explore the Algarve your way, with countless options at your fingertips.

As European capitals go, Lisbon seems a little under-appreciated, particularly when you consider its global reach throughout history. Visit the Monument to the Discoveries, which honours this past, specifically Henry the Navigator, who paved the way for Portuguese exploration. Many of these voyages set out from the Belem Tower, your next stop before going on to Jeronimos Monastery. It’s then on to the richly decorated Coaches Museum, one of Portugal’s most popular attractions, before ending the tour with (what else?) a Port Wine tasting.

Fly to the Algarve, Portugal’s southern playground, and settle into your accommodation in the laid back Gale district. A rich and complex history, fantastic scenery where beaches stretch out from the foot of mountains, unique local cuisine, and lovely architecture all come together to create one of Europe’s loveliest corners. Best of all, there’s no bad time of year to go, with sunny, relatively warm weather year round.

    Located in Terreiro do Paco - Praça do Comercio, a historic part of the city of Lisbon, is now born a new lodging in Praca do Comercio. Historic place of unique importance, this was the place where for centuries ships with goods disembarked. Totally destroyed after the 1755 earthquake, it was Marques de Pombal the one who gave the order to rebuild almost the entire Lisbon. This is one of the most emblematic places of the city and there are several exit points from here that allow you to visit the rest of Lisbon, walk alongside the Tejo or even cross the river bank. If Lisbon was born at the castle, it was from the Terreiro do Paco (Palace Square) that it expanded. Augusta Street is the main artery that connects the Commerce Square to the beautiful Rossio Square.

Day 2

Classic Lisbon

Discover the magnificent city of Lisbon. The history and traditions of the city will be unveiled to you as you discover the various sights. First stop is the Monument to the Discoveries. This monument was built in honor of Henry the Navigator, who was instrumental in the success of the Portuguese explorations during the fifteenth century, a period now known as the Age of Discoveries. Next is the Tower of Belem, which was built in 1515 as a fortress to guard the entrance to Lisbon's harbor. The Belem Tower was the starting point for many of the voyages of discovery, and for the sailors it was the last sight of their homeland. You will then continue on and see Jeronimos' Monastery, which is one of the great triumphs of European Gothic (UNESCO has classified it a World Heritage monument), with much of the design characterized by elaborate sculptural details and maritime motifs. Your tour would not be complete without a visit to the Coaches Museum. One of Lisbon's most visited sights, the Coaches Museum (Museu Nacional dos Coches) has the largest and most valuable collection of its type in the world. It is housed in a richly decorated 18th century royal riding school that is part of Belem Palace, illustrating the ostentation and staggering wealth of the old Portuguese elite. To have a full Lisbon experience, you will also be treated to a Port Wine tasting.
