Description

The upper Alentejo region is abundant in amazing natural landscapes and historic towns. This private, full-day tour takes you to the mediaeval village of Marvão and to the remains of the Roman town of Ammaia, passing through unforgettable scenes and places on the way.

In the morning, get picked up by your private guide, who acts as chauffeur for the day. First travel from Lisbon to the upper Alentejo region and stop at Castelo de Vide, a charming castle town where you'll arrive 2 hours after departure. Pay a visit to the mediaeval fortress itself to learn of its history, then drive on to the village of Marvão not before passing through what is considered the most beautiful road in the country. The mediaeval settlement of Marvão features whitewashed houses and a stunning 13th-century castle rising from the mountain. Stroll through village's heritage-filled streets and learn about its ancient background, taking a look into the magnificent castle as well.

After a break for lunch, proceed to the Roman ruins of Ammaia. Walk among the remarkable ruins of a town founded in the 1st century, passing a forum, temple, and even a small baths complex and learn all about this once thriving city in the local museum. After venturing through Ammaia, we'll drive north, maybe pay a visit to Nisa, a town famous for its exquisite sheep cheeses. Begin heading back to Lisbon in the evening, passing the gorgeous landscapes surrounding Velha de Ródão as a stunning end to your tour.
