These are regions with a very rich cuisine, without forgetting the natural and historical heritage.
If you looking for a calm, quiet but with many points of interest holidays then this is the ideal package for you.
Day 1: Begins with Lisbon and head to the university town of Coimbra. This will be the starting point for exploring the region, discovering the wines of the Bairrada region. On the first day, start exploring some of the most charismatic points of Coimbra. Because of its centennial university, is a city of socializing and bohemia. However, there is much to see, thanks to its historical past. Was in Coimbra that happened the forbidden love of D. Pedro and D. Inês, who inspired poets and writers. Their story continues to be part of the heritage of the city. We highlight the Machado de Castro Museum, the National Museum of Science and Technology, the Museu de Conímbriga, all classified as World Heritage by UNESCO. The roast suckling pig, chanfana and lamprey rice, are some of the signature dishes of the local cuisine.
Day 2: The next day, set out to explore the Bairrada wine, bound for Anadia. Visit the producers and cellars and get to know how the Bairrada wine is produced. Do not forget to do a wine tasting! But the region has many other attractions, such as Termas da Curia and Millstone Valley and barrage Gralheira. Finally, visit the museums, closely linked to the production of wine.
Day 3: In the region of Coimbra, there are two things that can not fail to see. The first are the ruins of the Roman city of Conimbriga, a few kilometers from the city. The other is related to local cuisine. Then, off to explore the area Bussaco and Aveiro. Take a visit to the national forest of Bussaco and the Military Museum. At dinner, you must taste the to the Bairrada suckling pig, always accompanied with a glass of local wine.
Day 4: Now, your destination is the city of Viseu, where you start a journey of discovery through the world of Dão wines. Let yourself be carried away by the aroma and flavors of wine, waiting to be discovered.
