Cultural highlight – the Roman Villa of São Cucufate

 

Day Four

Cultural stop over – village of Monsaraz. One of the best-preserved villages in the country. If it were in Spain (anywhere else), it would be mobbed with throngs of tourists year-round. We may also stop in the pottery town of Sao Pedro do Corval.

Winery tasting and tapas – Herdade do Esporão

Dinner – We have been going to 1⁄4 para as 9 for over twelve years now. It’s been in business for over 40!

Day Six

Cultural stop over – We will visit one of the oldest outdoor markets in Europe in the marble town of Estremoz.

Winery tasting – Dona Maria is stunning. They really live here!
Lunch – In the town of Estremoz. If this restaurant were in Lisbon, it would have lines outside the door each night.

Day Seven

Early breakfast, check out and transfer back to Lisbon airport.
Most of you will be departing on a noon flight that day, therefore you will be leaving the Évora hotel at around 8 am.
If you are staying in the country, breakfast is at your leisure.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Arriving early or extending your stay
Lisbon is a city that can easily be explored on your own. We think one can easily spend a week in Lisbon if you have the time. If you would like to extend your trip or arrive early, we are happy to assist with hotel recommendations and things to see and do.
Also - Seville is a three-hour drive from Évora. Porto is a four-hour drive from Évora.
