Wine, Cheese & Sweets Tasting in the wonderful Arrábida mountain
We will start our day going to Azeitão. To get there we will cross the amazing 25 th of April bridge.
Have you ever wondered how our tiles are made? You will have the opportunity to visit a traditional tile-painting factory.
We cannot miss the José Maria da Fonseca wine cellar, where we will taste it's wine. Right after we will learn how the local cheese is made and try some Azeitão cheese and Moscatel wine along with some Tortas de Azeitão, the famous local sweets.
We will cross the Arrábida's mountain natural park enjoying its wonderful landscapes and have lunch in Setúbal, famous for its fish and seafood restaurants.
At the end of the tour we will go back to Lisbon by the Vasco da Gama bridge, still feeling the delicious tastes of Arrábida's mountain.
Other possibilities: having lunch in Sesimbra instead of Setúbal, and visiting its castle. It is also possible to visit a cork producing estate after lunch. Please message me for more info so I can create a customized tour that meets your interests!

Inez was g-r-e-a-t! She was very versed in local customs and history. She is very likeable and is a very good driver. We all enjoyed being with her very much.
