Tuesday, August 26th

Full day in the city of Porto to visit the cellars / Casa da Ferreirinha (tasting of Port wines), visit to Palácio da Bolsa and lunch at Matosinhos "5 Oceanos" Restaurant in Matosinhos Beach €65

  • The city of Porto, built along the hillsides overlooking the mouth of the Douro river, is an outstanding urban landscape with a 2,000-year history. Its continuous growth, linked to the sea (the Romans gave it the name Portus, or port), can be seen in the many and varied monuments, from the cathedral with its Romanesque choir, to the neoclassical Stock Exchange and the typically Portuguese Manueline-style Church of Santa Clara.

Thursday, August 28th

Full day trip to the historic cities of Braga & Guimarães - lunch included at Casa do Rio Restaurant. (return at 18.00) €65

  • Braga is one of the oldest Portuguese cities and one of the oldest Christian cities in the world. It was founded in the Roman times as Bracara Augusta and boasts more than 2,000 years of history as a city. Braga was Portugal's first city. The remains of ancient settlements in Braga are thousands of years old and are proven to date back to the Bronze Age.
  • The historic town of Guimarães is associated with the emergence of the Portuguese national identity in the 12th century. An exceptionally well-preserved and authentic example of the evolution of a medieval settlement into a modern town, its rich building typology exemplifies the specific development of Portuguese architecture from the 15th to 19th century through the consistent use of traditional building materials and techniques.
