Day 5

Algarve Day Tour - Vineyard, Silves & Alte

This morning enjoy a visit to one of the vineyards around the Lagoa area of the Algarve. Either Adega Cooperative de Logoa or Adega do Cantor which produces the Vida Nova wines and is owned by the singer Cliff Richard. Enjoy a tour of the vineyard followed by tastings, if you are visiting during harvesting in the late summer or early autumn you will be able to see the grapes being gathered and pressed.

Lunch in a local village restaurant before continuing to Silves, an enchanting town littered with orange and lemon trees, sitting on the banks of the Rio Arade. With its medieval castle it was once the Moorish capital of the Algarve. The castle and the Cathedral beside it are the first buildings you see as you approach Silves, as they sit on the hilltop above the town. From the castle a network of narrow, cobbled streets take you down into the town.

After time spent in Silves travel inland through Messines to Alte, one of the prettiest villages in the Algarve. Perched on a hill with whitewashed houses with lattice work and handcrafted chimneys, pretty streams and waterfalls that cascade down narrow cobbled streets nestling in the foothills of the Serra do Caldeirao. The church is at the centre of the village, and there are numerous little cafes in the surrounding area, to relax at and soak up the tranquility of the village. You can also visit the springs for which this mountain village is also known before returning to your hotel late afternoon.

Day 8

Lisbon Day Tour - Lisbon City Highlights

Tour Portugal's capital city, Lisbon. Razed to the ground following the earthquake in 1755, the city is essentially 18th century with carefully planned elegant streets of the Baixa, to the narrow streets of the Alfama and Bairro Alto. Since its glory days during the Age of Discovery, Lisbon has been an important port. The great monuments in Belem bear witness to the city' s maritime past and where the visits will commence.

The Belem Tower, the city's most photographed landmark dates back to 1515. The tower was built as a fortress in the middle of the River Tagus and was the starting point for the navigators who set out to discover the trade routes. Visit the nearby Monument to the Discoveries, with its huge pavement compass and then onto Jeronimos Monastery. This magnificent monastery is considered one of the most prominent monuments in Lisbon and is certainly one of the most successful achievements of the Manueline style of architecture. (Please note that the Belem Tower and Jeronimos Monastery are closed on Mondays)

Continue into Lisbon for lunch and head into the Alfama. A visit to Sao Jorge Castelo also commands impressive vistas, with the rambling Alfama old town rumbling away below the ramparts and the grid-like order of the Baixa visible just to the west. The Baixa is the business and shopping centre of the city, boasting its grandest square, Praca do Comercio, which lies right on the banks of the River Tagus. Baixa borders the Biarro Alto, a hilly coil of narrow streets that buzzes with shoppers by day and partygoers at night. Time in the city can be designed to personal preferences before returning to your hotel.

It hosted the 1994 & 1995 Portuguese Open Championships.
