Discover the beauty of the Alentejo in a city filled with history!
Come with us on this full-day private tour of Évora and its UNESCO World Heritage site.
Explore the richness of Alentejo's capital with more than 20 centuries of history, going back to Celtic times. Évora's Roman, Medieval and modern heritage blend together in a city that welcomes visitors with it's authenticity and peaceful life. Enjoy the local gastronomy, a complete history by itself and visit also the medieval village of Monsaraz, beautifully preserved within it's castle walls and visit one of the most famous wineries in Portugal where some of the most important Portuguese wines are made.
After the pickup we will head directly to Évora, about 1h30m drive. Once we get there we will leave the car and walk through the small city centre to the main attractions, Roman Temple, Cathedral, Bones Chapel, Giraldo's Square, etc.
After lunch we will head to the one of the Estates in the region. Here you will have the chance to taste (optionally) some of the wines produced in the estate.

This was a fantastic trip on an extra day in the Lisbon area. Evora was well worth a visit with interesting churches and ruins. Monsaraz was the highlight of this trip (and the food at the restaurant we went to there). The Portuguese countryside is beautiful. If you have time, I would recommend getting out into the other parts of Portugal. Francisco was an excellent guide and made the trip interesting and easy. Book with him!
