Today you are going on a day trip to explore the castles surrounding Sintra, a small town at the foot of the mountain close to the shore of Atlantic ocean. Sintra boasts a truly remarkable concentration of UNESCO listed sights. You explore the Moorish Castle that boasts nearly untouched medieval walls and great panoramic views of the surroundings and Pena Palace - a colorful building and one of the best-known tourist landmarks of Portugal. After the day trip, you return to the hotel and enjoy the evening at your leisure.

After breakfast at your hotel, you are transferred to Gare do Oriente railway station for a train trip to the Southern province of Portugal, Algarve. Upon arrival in Algarve (Loulé railway station), your private driver meets you holding a sign with your name on it. You are then transferred to your Vilamoura hotel and have some free time to explore the surrounding area.

Day 5

Coastal Exploration of Algarve

Enjoy breakfast at your Vilamoura hotel. Following that, you go on a private tour of the Algarve coast. Today's touring program takes us to coastal towns of Lagos and Sagres, which remain some of the most authentic parts of the Algarve region still not spoiled by tourist crowds. It is your perfect chance to wander back in time to the era of the Portuguese Discoveries! In Lagos, you visit the golden church of Saint Anthony and the first slave market in Europe, as well as marvel at the spectacular rock formations of Ponta da Piedade. In Sagres, you pass by the 15th-century fortress and visit Cape St. Vincent (the most southwestern point of Europe). This place was known as the End of the World and today apart from stunning natural panoramas it boasts the most powerful lighthouse in Europe. After the tour, you return to your Vilamoura hotel for an overnight. The rest of the evening is free.

Day 6

Free Day in Vilamoura

Many local celebrities come here to enjoy the holidays and weekends: sprawling shopping areas and nearly endless choice of recreation facilities will keep you entertained for the entire day!
