This Holiday in a nutshell
  • self-guided cultural journey by rail
  • visit the fabulous cities of Porto, Coimbra and Lisbon
  • explore on foot following our detailed cultural notes
  • taste wines from the Douro; admire Sintra’s palaces
  • stay at hotels of character

The legacy of Portugal’s seafaring adventurers lives on today, particularly in the country’s iconic cities, where magnificent historical monuments and sumptuous palaces abound, and the cultural influences of Portugal’s former African and South American dominions are clear to see.

Cintra... the most blessed spot on the whole inhabitable globe!
     
Robert Southey (English poet, 1714-1843)

These cities deserve leisurely exploration, from wine-producing Porto’s colourful waterfront 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. By combining all this with a journey upriver from Porto along the Rio Douro (‘river of gold’) to one of Europe’s most beautiful wine-producing regions, this journey allows you to appreciate much of the best that Portugal has to offer.
