Full description
The day starts with a meeting at your hotel in Oporto, Braga, or Guimarães and you’ll head towards the beautiful green area of Portugal, a title given to this region due to the fertility of its soils that confers a vivid green color to the landscape as far as your eyes can reach. Onboard a comfortable air-conditioned minibus, head towards Ponte de Lima, considered the oldest town in Portugal. Here, you will be guided through the picturesque streets, narrow alleys, and the ancient bridge of Ponte de Lima. Nearby this town you will have a relaxing moment with one of the treasures of the region, the green wine (Vinho Verde). This guided visit takes place inside a baroque palace that dates from the XVII century, where you will find a hospitable wine producer that will explain the uniqueness of this wine while you taste as well some local cheese and smoked sausage. This will also be the moment to enjoy a traditional lunch at a local restaurant. After lunch, you will be driven to Viana do Castelo, a city located between the river the ocean and the mountains. The rich history of this wonderful city will be explained while walking through medieval streets, blue-tiled churches, and traditional jewelry shops where you will find the famous heart from Viana. Enjoy one of the most beautiful panoramic views in the world - the Sanctuary of Santa Luzia. Cap off the experience with a perfectly crafted cocktail by the sea, while going over what has been learned about the history of Portugal, in the picturesque city of Viana do Castelo.
