At your Lisbon hotel, greet your private guide and board an air-conditioned vehicle destined for the beautiful landscapes of the Serra da Arrábida Natural Park. Home to some of Portugal’s most stunning scenery, the drive through the natural park offers numerous visual delights.
Stop first at Cristo Rei, the monument based on Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro, and capture photographs beneath the outstretched arms of Christ.
Then, disembark at Cabo Espichel — a Baroque fortress surrounded by natural beauty — and see the majestic Sesimbra Castle. After a scenic drive along the coastline, stop at Setubal to feast on lunch in a typical Portuguese restaurant (own expense).
Your next points of interest are the Azeitão villages: quaint hamlets dedicated to preserving Portuguese crafts such as tile-making and wood-carving. See, too, the vineyards of José Maria da Fonseca and Quinta da Bacalhoa, where you’ll have the chance to taste wine.
Return to Lisbon via Vasco da Gama bridge and bid your guide farewell after drop-off at your hotel.
