Know More about this tour

With your hotel as the starting point, your private driver takes you to the Palcio do Buaco. Considered the last legacy of the kings of Portugal, is located in the Bussaco National Forest and is a charm of nature. Wrapped in beautiful gardens, has neo-Manueline features and is decorated by tile panels, frescoes and paintings depicting the Discovery Ages.

Next we head to Coimbra, the city of students, with the oldest university in the country (twelfth century), and one of the oldest in the world. Enjoy visiting the Baroque library with a collection of over 300,000 books and some of the rarest manuscripts from all over the country.

We propose one of the downtown taverns to have lunch where you can find the most delicious snacks in the city.

In the afternoon you will get to know the Old Cathedral, of Romanesque architecture. Across the river we recommend a visit to the Convent of Santa Clara and the Quinta das Lgrimas, a place that witnessed the love of King Pedro and his beloved D.Ins.

Make sure to explore "Portugal for the Little Ones", a theme park featuring the major monuments and Portuguese houses in reduced size.

The Mondego River and the Choupal National Forest are great spots for a relaxing evening.

We return to Porto assured that you had an unforgettable day in the City of Love.

    Paulo picked us up and knowing we had wanted to see the oldest university in the Portugal and especially the Johana library, he planned the day so that we would not miss anything. He also took us to a local place for lunch in Coimbra for their special pork sandwich. We had asked not to return to Porto but be dropped off at the Coimbra train station to continue on to Lisbon which was no problem even with our luggage. Paulo was a lovely gentleman and we had a lovely day. Thank you.
