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.

We were so fortunate to have booked a walking tour of Lisbon and a tour of Sintra, including the Capuchin Convent, and Cascais with Ines V. (We changed Arribada) The breadth of her knowledge is remarkable, but her love of Portugal makes it all come alive so that you fall in love with the country as well. Just as importantly, the tidbits of information that she shares, from restaurants, to shopping, to how to navigate the steepest hills are invaluable. Not only will we miss Portugal, but we will miss Ines
