This Holiday in a nutshell
  • self-guided classic journey by rail with cultural notes
  • stay at hotels of character
  • experience vibrant Lisbon, ancient Coimbra, colourful Porto and exuberant Sintra
  • visit the unique cultural and historical sights
  • opportunities for wine-tasting
  • detailed notes for city walking tours

Once the home of great adventurers, Portugal's rich and distinctive cities deserve leisurely exploration, not only to see the architectural legacy that the great flowering of gold-financed culture brought, but also to experience some of its lesser-known corners; and the people, of course, who epitomise the rich diversity of this evocative country.

Nowhere offers a better opportunity to experience the true character of Portugal more than its most iconic cities, from wine-producing Porto’s colourful waterfront on the Rio Douro (‘river of gold’) and the quiet dignity of Coimbra, the oldest seat of learning in the land and birthplace of kings; to bustling Lisbon, the lively capital, and historic Sintra, where a succession of hilltops are capped by ornate summer palaces built by the old Portuguese aristocracy.
