Edventure Highlights Include:

~ Welcome Dinner


~ Following a local guide through the meandering medieval lanes of Porto, a 2,000-year-old UNESCO World Heritage Site, including the Old-World Ribeira District, along the boat-lined Douro riverfront, and to citywide icons, such as the Baroque-style Clérigos Tower, the Gothic São Francisco Church and the wrought-iron Dona Maria Pia Bridge


~ A cruise along the Douro River, taking in scenes of Porto’s vibrant waterfront and historic Villa Nova de Gaia, home to the region’s centuries-old port wine warehouses, and drifting under Old-World bridges, passing colorful hillside villas and traditional rabelos (flat-bottomed boats) along the way

~ A visit to two of Porto’s most prestigious port wine cellars to learn the long-standing history of port wine before being treated to a tasting of each cellar’s world-famous labels

~ A guided tour of Coimbra, home to the country’s first university, known as the “Oxford” of Portugal, and its striking Gothic architecture of its medieval old town and riverfront

~ Évora, one of Europe’s oldest continuously inhabited cities, and once home to Portuguese royalty, including the region’s distinctive whitewashed homes, the remains of the Roman temple and the eerie “Chapel of Bones.”

~ The Algarve’s region, with its stunning white-sand beaches and breathtaking coastline, including the seafaring towns of Lagos and Sagres, as well as the Sagres Fortress on Cape St. Vincent, thought to be the westernmost point in the world before the Age of Discovery

~ Lisbon, Portugal’s colorful capital city, beginning with a guided tour to take in the city’s tribute to world explorers at the Maritime Monument and iconic Belém Tower, followed by visits to the Jerónimos Monastery and the culturally rich Alfama District


~ Lisbon Prison (Correctional/Law Enforcement Officials only)

~ An evening at a Lisbon tavern dining and listening to Fado, entertainment derived from the Latin word fatum—meaning "prophecy" or "fate"—that is Portugal’s national musical treasure

~ The UNESCO World Heritage-listed town of Sintra to learn why the Poet Lord Byron once called it a “glorious Eden”, as Sintra is home to the only surviving royal palace from the Middle Ages, which will be explored on a guided tour
