Your 6-night vacation package to Portugal combines your stay in the coastal capital city of Lisbon with a visit to the historic port city of Oporto. Your knowledgeable Local Host® is available as much or as little as you wish to help you enjoy the best that each city has to offer. Your Local Host can suggest traditional to modern sights, as well as local establishments you’ll want to discover.
While in stunning Lisbon, you’ll enjoy guided sightseeing to explore Baixa City Center in the heart of Lisbon with its elegant squares, pedestrian streets, cafes, and shops. Wander the cobblestone alleys of the ancient Moorish quarter of Alfama, and drive along the grand Avenida da Liberdade to Pombal Square.
You’ll also want to take photos of Belém Tower and the Monument of Discoveries to capture picturesque panoramas. You can also visit the tomb of legendary Portuguese explorer Vasco da Gama in the historic site of Jeronimos Monastery.
