This Holiday in a nutshell
  • diverse journey by rail, with cultural notes provided
  • stay at three 4-star hotels
  • experience vibrant and cosmopolitan Lisbon
  • uncover the ancient city of Coimbra
  • enjoy the colourful waterfront of Porto

Land of intrepid explorers, famous fortified wines and lauded scholars, Portugal has a rich cultural heritage that demands further investigation and exploration. Embark upon our rail journey of discovery and you will soon come to appreciate the bravado, the hard work and the willingness to learn that epitomises the rich diversity of the people of this evocative country.

I could happily spend hours simply strolling where my feet take me through these cities. I love their authenticity and faded charm, and the fact that even the most unlikely-looking of streets are adorned with intricately painted tiles.
Beth Hancock, Inntravel

There’s an old Portuguese adage: ‘Coimbra studies whilst Lisbon shows off and Porto works’. They are certainly very distinctive, and to visit all three delightful cities will give you a taste of the many different faces of Portugal. Discover vibrant and cosmopolitan Lisbon, explore Porto’s colourful waterfront, and immerse yourself in the quiet dignity of Coimbra, the oldest seat of learning in the land and birthplace of kings. Our detailed notes will lead you from our hand-picked hotels on self-guided walking tours through both the famous and lesser-known quarters of the cities, sharing our insights and suggestions for a leisurely and enjoyable stay.
