Then on to the fishing harbor of Nazaré, the perfect place for a leisurely break. Continue to Alcobaça to visit the CHURCH OF SANTA MARIA MONASTERY, built in the 12th century for 999 Cistercian monks. See the elaborate tombs of King Pedro I and his Castilian lover, Inês de Castro. In the afternoon, mix with the pilgrims at the country’s hallowed national shrine, Fátima’s SANCTUARY OF OUR LADY OF THE ROSARY. Overnight in Tomar.

After a visit to the 700-year-old UNIVERSITY, drive by ancient Buçaco Forest on your way to Oporto, Portugal’s second-largest city. Tonight, why not relax during an optional cruise on the Douro River, followed by dinner at one of Oporto’s fine restaurants?

OPORTO

Sightseeing with a Local Guide includes a panoramic drive to the mouth of the Douro River, the soaring cathedral, and the STOCK EXCHANGE with its contemporary ARABIAN HALL, inspired by Granada’s Alhambra.

OPORTO–GUIMARAES–VISEU

From here, a scenic road through the port wine vineyards leads to Viseu, where dinner at a local restaurant awaits!
