Your Hotel or Accommodation in central Lisbon
(optionally in a nearby place of your preference)
Our tour begins at 8:30h with the pick up at your Hotel, Apartment or Ship. This ensures enough time to enjoy our program without any hurry.
This private tour is provided mainly with the objective of showing you the national monuments at Évora, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the medieval villages of Monsaraz, or as alternatively, Estremoz. Although there will be time to visit the inside of some selected monuments or attractions, it is never sufficient to visit all of them, so please inform your driver of your preferences and all arrangements will be made in order to fulfill your preferences. This experience is provided for the sole purpose of your enjoyment so feel free to ask for whatever you need and we will try our best to accommodate your request. As this is a private tour, you will have the freedom to rearrange your tour as you see fit. Below is the standard itinerary:
After the pickup we will head directly to the Southeast through one of Lisbon’s emblematic bridges, directly to Évora, an approximately 1h30m drive. Once we get there we will show you initially the surroundings of the old city. After that we will proceed to the center of the village where 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. (an approximate 1 to 2 kms walk to see all the main spots)
We will then proceed, before or after lunch, depending on your meal preferences and what ends up being decided, to the village of Monsaraz, or Estremoz, depending on the option selected. While Monzaraz is a perfect medieval village all tucked inside of a castle, with beautiful landscapes, Estemoz is the centre of the Marble production in Portugal and also has beautiful constructions and landscapes regarding this theme. During this second part of the day we will visit one of the local wine estates, where you will have the chance to taste (optionally) some of the wines produced, after which we will head back to Lisbon. Return to the hotel by 6pm
