Travel to Portugal
Portugal has benefitted from its enviable coastal location throughout history. Reminders of the many cultures that have thrived here are evident in stately palaces, medieval castles, tranquil monasteries and quaint fishing villages. With A&K, discover this country that brims with old-world charm.
If you have limited time for a visit to this culture-rich country, then Portugal, Lisbon, Porto and the Douro Valley should be on your list of places to visit. On an A&K independent journey, walk through Lisbon's Alfama, one of the city's oldest quarters, to Jerònimos Monastery, a masterpiece of Manueline architecture and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. See the Belém Tower, the sentinel that protects the entrance to Lisbon.
Porto, located on a steep hillside overlooking the Douro River, has been the capital of the port wine trade since the mid-eighteenth century. Your A&K guide can take you to a port wine lodge for a tasting in the region where this delectable vinho was born. In the Douro Valley, orchards and vineyards climb the hillsides. With A&K, you have a chance to visit a traditional quinta (rustic estate) to learn the secrets of port wine.
Experience the soul of this romantic country on an A&K journey.
