Our itinerary gives us ample time to explore and be inspired. We might be sampling the local port from a pre-eminent quinta or wine estate in the Douro Valley, enjoying a craft exhibition or fado performance, or marveling at antique azulejos; tiles decorated in the classic Portuguese color palette of blues and white. Slowly, the stories of the history, religion, and culture of this open and welcoming country will unfold.

Throughout our journey, we’ll also experience the bounty of the Portuguese table— freshly baked bread, olives, cheese, chargrilled fish, smoked meats and regional pastries. Simple cooking, perfectly prepared, is rooted in the vibrant life of Portugal’s coastline and countryside.

Superb lodging awaits us throughout the trip, from manor-house, boutique luxury in Porto to traditional, historic pousadas in Évora and Lisbon. Join us and experience the magic of Portugal!
