Through its millennial history, when this powerful seafaring kingdom dominated the merchant routes to Africa, South America and the Orient, Portugal today boasts a fabulous architectural heritage with 14 UNESCO listed sites such as Sintra, Evora, Porto, Coimbra… but also a superb cuisine and fine wines.
Portugal is a small country (218 kilometers wide and 561 kilometers long only) with a population of 10 millions people. Despite of its size, Portugal offers an incredible diversity of landscapes and climates. Whether you decide to explore Porto e Norte area and Beiras region, or Lisbon with the west coast, or Alentejo, or Algarve… you will discover and appreciate different traditions and culture, but still… in having the same kind welcome of hospitable people.
Lifestyle Vacations France-based company also operates Portugal, offering original culinary and cultural tours.
Each program is original, designed by Corinne Preteur. The first tour features Lisbon and Alentejo. The second tour is dedicated to Porto and the Douro Valley. Both tours are escorted by Corinne personally.
