This is tour that combines the best in Portugal. Get ready to see outstanding landscapes and to feel intense flavours in a still today rural region visited for its creamy cheeses and prestigious wines.

Come and meet the countryside so close to the city. After crossing April 25 bridge, we’ll quickly arrive to the small town of Azeitão, where a landscape of olive trees, vineyards and cork oak trees prevails.

Delight yourself with a sheep cheese tasting accompanied by a drink. But this region is also wanted by any sweet tooth, in search for Torta de Azeitão, a sweet local invention well known and appreciated in the whole country. So, why not taste one? We also couldn’t miss a visit to the historical wine cellars José Maria da Fonseca that produce Piriquita wine, Moscatel Wine and 40 more brands. During the visit, find out about its over hundred year old secrets and get delighted by a tasting of 3 of their great wines.

And what if we show you how a tile is born? Can you imagine yourself with a paintbrush creating your own masterpiece? All of this is possible!

But the trip goes on throughout Arrábida Hill breathtaking views, combining the green of the Hill with the blue of the Ocean.

At the end of the day, discover the other bridge over Tagus River, the second longest in Europe. So, we’ll give you the opportunity of crossing both bridges.
