Know More about this tour

Departure time 8:30 AM at your Hotel. After a brief introduction to your guide, leave Lisbon and relax in a comfortable coach as you head to vora.
In this private tour, we leave Lisbon towards the Alentejo Region and arrive at vora one of the oldest and most charming cities of Portugal, with over 2000 years of history. vora is known as the Museum City that flourished as a center of learning and arts. Once in the heart of the Alentejo region, orient yourself to vora's beauty by walking its picturesque streets. As you stroll, your guide will illuminate the surroundings with fascinating tales and facts. Visit the most beautiful views of the Alentejo, continuing through its narrow streets lined with white houses. 

At your leisure, break for lunch at a local restaurant (included in the price). Alentejo restaurants n Evora are the ideal place for visitors to be introduced to Alentejo gastronomy. In this region, it is well-known, the cuisine is a must. The reason is simple: delicious ingredients from Alentejo together with the wise hands of the people who have lived here for generations. Alentejo tradicional cuisine has, as a base, the unavoidable pork, lamb and bread (but you can choose ohers meals)

We are welcome by the Giraldo Square, the living center of vora, full of architectural styles, from Moorish arches lined up in the Square, through the fountains of the Renaissance, to the Gothic church of So Francisco. Enjoy some free time to taste a regional sweet. 

Then we head to one of the major landmarks of Portugal, the Roman Temple, also known as the Temple of Diana. Its powerful front with 14 columns in well-preserved granite, astonish those who see it for the first time. For those who are not easily impressed we suggest a visit to the Bones Chapel. For some people, it is a dark place, for other a fascinating space, consisting of hundreds of skulls and skeletons from about 5000 monks of the sixteenth century. Then, enjoy a typical lunch in a traditional restaurant.

Then we will go to the Cathedral of Evora, a Roman-Gothic church of the XIII century, where you can climb the tower and have a breathtaking view of the city and the fields surrounding it. 

With unique climatic conditions, the vineyards of the region produce some of the best Portuguese wines and so take you to a farm where you will taste the best the Alentejo has to offer. 

On our way back to Lisbon we will stop in Arraiolos with its magnificent castle wall and the ancient tradition of the famous carpets of Arraiolos. You can see firsthand how they are manually produced and maybe bring a souvenir
