What to expect

In this tour you will know the History of one of the most important cities in Portugal, where kings and queens lived for centuries, where Fado is sung in a unique way and where the oldest university in the country was born. You will also have time to visit one of the most beautiful and exotic palaces of this region.

With your hotel as the starting point, your private driver takes you to the Palácio do Buçaco. Considered the last legacy of the kings of Portugal, is located in the Bussaco National Forest and is a charm of nature. Wrapped in beautiful gardens, has neo-Manueline features and is decorated by tile panels, frescoes and paintings depicting the Discovery Ages.

Next we head to Coimbra, the city of students, with the oldest university in the country (12th century), and one of the oldest in the world. Enjoy visiting the Baroque library with a collection of over 300,000 books and some of the rarest manuscripts from all over the country.

We propose one of the downtown taverns to have lunch where you can find the most delicious snacks in the city. In the afternoon you will get to know the Old Cathedral, of Romanesque architecture. Across the river we recommend a visit to the Convent of Santa Clara and the Quinta das Lágrimas, a place that witnessed the love of King Pedro and his beloved D.Inês.

Make sure to explore Portugal for the Little Ones, a theme park featuring the major monuments and Portuguese houses in reduced size.

The Mondego River and the Choupal National Forest are great spots for a relaxing evening.

We return to Porto assured that you had an unforgettable day in the City of Love.
