Estimated Local Cash Needed
60 Euros - Per day and per person. This serves to give an idea of extra costs. In Portugal, depending on how open you are to taste the genuine tastes you may have a very reasonable experience. I am not considering the wine tastings and visits that may be more . Anyway my experience tells that the more you go with the locals the less you may expend here. If you are more demanding, you have also great choices and should expect to pay more.
Meals, drinks, wine tastings.
For accomodation that is not included we suggest in Douro : Vintage House, Hotel Douro Régua ( for price reasons )Quinta do Vallado, Pacheca, Marrocos, Têdo . Quinta das Lavandas or Pousada de Marvão. Convento do Espinheiro in Évora.
