We begin the evening with a panoramic tour of some of the most important places and monuments in both the monumental suburb of Belém and in central Lisbon.
In Belém you will see the magnificent Tower of Belém, a 16th Century defensive structure built in the native Manueline variant of Gothic architecture. It has survived many a battle and is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Under the night floodlights, its golden reflection sparkles in the Tagus.
From there we will head to the city centre to drive through emblematic spots such as Comércio, Rossio and Pombal squares and the Avenida da Liberdade, Lisbon’s most elegant boulevard.
Soon it will be time for the highlight of the night, a traditional dinner to the accompaniment of Fado. These nostalgic and wistful songs are considered to be the ultimate expression of the spirit of Portugal, beauty tinged with melancholy.
The word Fado itself means destiny and is derived from the Latin word that gave English the word fate. Experiencing a genuine Fado is your destiny when in town.

Today, you will see historic buildings, admire natural wonders, stroll through landscaped gardens and be able to savour local delicacies on this journey to the westernmost point in continental Europe.
Our first stop is Sintra, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where you will have the opportunity to visit the Palacio da Vila, a retreat used by the Portuguese Royal Family until its destitution in 1910. There will also be time to explore the numerous craft shops and to sample Sintra’s pastries. You shouldn’t leave without tasting a Queijada or Travesseiro.
We will then drive towards Cabo da Rocha, Portugal’s very own Land’s End and the most westerly point of continental Europe. Travelling along this dramatic coast, we will pass the spellbinding Praia do Guincho before arriving at the elegant resort of Cascais. Highlights along this leg include the breathtaking Boca do Inferno cliffs and the magnificent panorama
of the bay of Cascais.
As we make our way back to Lisbon, we will pass through Estoril, with its world famous gardens and casino on a rocky promontory overlooking a beach.
