Although there are other blissful destinations in the country, whether you’re looking for a relaxed time by the beach or a guided tour through the culturally and historically rich medieval towns, we have chosen two different regions for your family journey: The Algarve and Lisbon, the capital city.

For many years, Portugal was known only for the Algarve, chiefly thanks to the idyllic beaches, the perfect climate and sunny days, long stretches of sand as far as the eye can see, small coves sheltered by astonishing limestone cliffs, and waters so calm and crystal clear you can’t possibly stay out of it for too long. But the Algarve has much more to offer: history, gastronomy, culture, archeology, museums, sports, open-air activities, and mountains.

That is why we have decided to start this Spring/Summer Family Journey by the sunny Algarve, the picture-perfect place to balance relaxation and entertainment.

After our trip to the Algarve, it is time for Lisbon, one of the loveliest capitals of Europe and a quiet yet exciting city where you will be able to do anything you dream of. From walking along the narrow streets of the old quarters to resting in the elegant, busy al-fresco cafes and restaurants — or even taking the tram uphill to the São Jorge Castle and the quirky, surrounding neighborhoods — Lisbon has it all.

Lisbon’s history and cultural heritage is not only in the museums and galleries, but also in its streets, buildings, and people.

  • WHERE TO STAYThere is a great variety of hotels/resorts we can suggest making your stay seamless and unforgettable. Depending on the number of people in your party, your budget and your personal interests, we’ve got the answer that will fulfil your inmost wishes.

  • On your second day, we suggest a visit to the Portimão Museum, a journey into the day-to-day life of local people observed through the lens of one of the most important products manufactured in Portugal and the Algarve: canned fish.
  • The Portimão Museum is devoted to all of the Algarve, where visitors can learn about the rich history of this region that goes back to prehistoric times, focused on the most significant economic activities and its connections and influence over cultural and social traits.
  • The main building of this museum was once a canning factory, and it now displays an interesting exhibition about this ancient industry that reveals the entire process, as well as archeological marvels, underwater findings, and the conservation methods of mackerel and sardines.



  • Feel free to enjoy this day on the beach, the perfect opportunity to take a refreshing dip in the warm waters, go for a long walk on the white, far-reaching beach or even try some ‘amêijoas à Bulhão Pato’, a traditional clam dish, with a cold beer and the sunset quieting down on one of the many local, seaside restaurants.



  • This will be a discovery morning dedicated to Silves, the capital city of the ancient Arab kingdom of the Algarve. Visit the old town and explore the red-hued castle, considered one of the most beautiful military monuments from Islamic Portugal.
  • Silves became Christian and Portuguese in mid 13th The ancient great mosque was transformed in the cathedral, as it would happen on those days. The historic center retains a medieval layout and the charm of the streets of the old medina. The Medieval Fair, an historic reconstruction of medieval times that takes place in mid-August, is not to be missed.



  • The stunning beaches in the Algarve are a sight for sore eyes, there’s no doubt about it, but local towns are also full of magic and whimsical features — and we’d love for you to experience both during your trip. This is why we suggest a visit to Lagos in the morning or the afternoon.
  • The delightful Lagos goes back to 2000 BC, again thanks to its ideal location close to the popular, rich ocean waters. Many different people occupied the region, but it were the Romans who brought growth and prosperity to the town. In the 10th century, already under Moorish power, the city was surrounded by a wall. As it happened with Silves, Lagos became Christian and Portuguese in the middle of the 13th The 15th century gave Lagos its golden years. Thanks to its location and weather, Lagos port was one of the most important havens during the Discoveries period.
  • Today, this picturesque town, with its cobbled narrow streets, lovely riverside promenade, and a fascinating cluster of ancient buildings steeped in history, is a one-of-a-kind destination for everyone looking for a quiet day without the hustle and bustle of a large city — and a number of charming, first-class restaurants and cafes serving the best fresh fish and seafood.



  • After waving goodbye to a wonderful time in the Algarve, it is time to welcome Lisbon with open arms.
  • As soon as you’re done checking-in at your hotel, it is time for a 2-hour walking tour in Lisbon, ending at the Lisboa Story Centre. Before this, however, you will take the lift up to the stunning Rua Augusta arch, from where you can enjoy a 360 º view over Baixa (downtown area) and the Tagus River.
  • Lisboa Story Centre is an innovative space dedicated to the history of the Portuguese capital, inspired by the wide array of facts and events that have shaped the city. Located in the East wing of the newly renovated Terreiro do Paço, it has been designed as an interactive visitor attraction, comprising six public areas and featuring state-of-the-art technology. Like a well-illustrated book, the Lisboa Story Centre magically takes visitors on a fascinating journey through time by using a combination of elaborate sets, multimedia, and sensory experiences, the Centre stages dramatic recreations of Lisbon’s most important historical events within Baixa Pombalina and Terreiro do Paço, exploring the myths and stories of this ancient city.
  • Presented in a playful, interactive manner, while respecting the rich historical tapestry of this magnificent city, the Centre offers visitors a journey of approximately 60 minutes across time and space.
  • Rest of the day is free for you to explore the city, the bustling streets, the cool cafes, and soak up its charm, its allure, and breathtaking views.

Accommodation: Jupiter Lisboa Hotel. This is a wonderful hotel located right in one of the busiest hubs in Lisbon. In case you prefer something other than a hotel, we can arrange it for you.



  • This morning is dedicated to horses and carriages. Let us start the day with an equestrian art show of the Lusitano horse performed by the Portuguese School of Equestrian Art.
  • After the show, we suggest a visit to the Museu Nacional dos Coches (National Coach Museum), a coach collection unlike any other in the world, with vehicles between the 16th and the 19th centuries, which allows visitors to understand the technical and artistic evolution of transportation used by the Courts of Europe during this period.
  • Lunch in one of the local restaurants.
  • After lunch, visit one of the most iconic monuments in the city: the Mosteiro dos Jerónimos (Jerónimos Monastery), the outer façade of the Padrão dos Descobrimentos (Monument to the Discoveries) and the Torre de Belém (Belém Tower). Because these are Lisbon’s major attractions, we prefer to do them in the afternoon, when it is expected to be less crowded.



  • We start the day with a private visit to the Oceanário de Lisboa, considered to be the Best Aquarium in the World by TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice.
  • Oceanário de Lisboa is definitely one-of-a-kind, with four marine habitats that create the illusion of a single aquarium and a vast, sole ocean, holding 5 million liters of seawater. This exhibition features terrestrial and marine ecosystems, as well as temperate, tropical and cold waters.
  • After the visit, your guide will meet you for a panoramic tour of the modern Parque das Nações surrounding area, before driving you to one of the most historic, traditional, and remarkable areas of Lisbon, the São Jorge Castle and Alfama.
  • From the São Jorge Castle you will have excellent views over the city and the river — and walking down the narrow streets of Alfama you will be able to imagine how the city looked like before the 1755 earthquake. A truly mesmerizing trip to the past, no less.



  • Sintra is nothing short of amazing with its majestic mountains and romantic town, only a short 30-minute distance from Lisbon.
  • Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site – Cultural Landscape since 1992, Sintra’s compelling charm is passed on by its unique, romantic charisma of a not-so-typical Southern Europe town that can muster sun and fog all in the same day.
  • Wander in the dreamy parks of Pena or Monserrate, enter a world of Kings and Queens in the Queluz gardens, discover the secrets of the National and Pena palaces, explore the mysterious realm of Quinta da Regaleira — and don’t forget to make your way into the village center and try the famous travesseiros, delicious puff pastries filled with almond-and-egg-yolk cream, which are sure to make you come back for more.
  • Depending on the time you decide to spend in Sintra, we may include a visit to the westernmost point of continental Europe — Cabo da Roca — to admire the wonderful waterscape from the top of the cliffs. Cascais is also a lovely, cosmopolitan beach resort filled with wonderful restaurants and fancy yet traditional neighborhoods that is worth a visit.
