Heritage Landscapes, Museums and Portuguese Culture

Course summary

Porto, Portugal

6-day Course

Portugal has the oldest borders in Europe, with an exceptional range of different landscapes just a short distance away, lots of leisure activities and a unique cultural heritage, where tradition and modernity blend together in perfect harmony. Its superb cuisine, fine wines and hospitable people make this country a tourist paradise of the highest quality.
