COME JOIN KATIE FOR A CURATED GLOBAL JOURNEY
Lisbon, Alentejo, Douro & Porto
26 June 2021 - 03 July 2021 | 7 Nights
From gorgeous beaches and eclectic architecture, to quaint fishing villages and renowned vineyards, Portugal is culture-rich and brims with old-world charm. On this journey, we focus on the countryside, the farms, and the wineries of Alentejo and Douro. Porto and Lisbon are, of course, also included. Alongside Roman stones and medieval convents, Lisbon boasts exquisite tile work on every corner. Alentejo personifies a history immersed in periods of unrest and bonanzas and is a land where culture and tradition go hand in hand. Envisage rolling plains filled with cork trees and honest people, proud of Alentejo. Further north, we unveil the secrets of the Douro Valley. With majestic riverbanks sculpted by centuries of vineyard cultivation, the valley is the world's oldest wine-producing region and is home to a famous port wine.
Downriver, Porto is a tightly-clustered assortment of colorful tumbledown houses, soaring bell towers, and stately Baroque churches. Accompany me on this riveting journey back through time and feast your senses!
