What you can expect
In this 9 hour tour you will be driven south in comfort across the bridge through beautiful landscapes towards The Alentejo, Portugal’s largest region and maybe the wildest. A region lined by a rugged coast to the west and filled with farmland, cork oaks, vineyards, olive groves, and other crops and livestock.
You will explore Évora. Designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Évora is known as a “city-museum” filled with culturally significant landmarks and it is marked with a notable history. It is also the Alentejo’s regional capital and largest city. You will visit a wine producing estate where you will have lunch and a wine tasting.
Along the way you will see how cork is extracted. You will then head to another estate where one of Portugal most famous brand of olive oil is produced. Time for a tasting, of course, before heading back to Lisbon revitalised.
