Portugal is one of the most popular travel destinations in Europe. In addition to its Mediterranean climate, the country also boasts a magnificent coastline and a variety of vegetation. The north of Portugal is full of lush greenery. In the south, the Baixo Alentejo region stretches as far as the popular Algarve. Inland, the landscape is characterised by vast golden wheat fields and cork oaks.
There are also a number of places steeped in history. Well worth a visit alone, the capital Lisbon is renowned for its impressive historical attractions, geographical location and fascinating light. The rows of houses perched atop the city’s seven hills add to the unique atmosphere.
Culture is a particularly important part of life in the Alentejo region. Here, the flower-covered plains and endless beaches are just as captivating as the many castles, churches and abbeys.
You simply have to see if for yourself in order to appreciate the full diversity that this country has to offer. What better way than in a Porsche Panamera?
Arrival at Lisbon Airport where you will be greeted and taken straight to your hotel: the Four Seasons Hotel Ritz, one of the city’s finest establishments. You are free to spend the afternoon as you please – strolling around the city, for instance. There are many shops and tourist attractions within easy walking distance. In the evening, we invite you to join us for a welcome aperitif before relaxing over dinner in a stylish setting in preparation for the days ahead.
It’s finally time to start the engine of your Porsche Panamera. Today’s leg of the tour takes you from Lisbon, over the River Tagus and along the coast, towards the Alentejo region. Travel along winding roads through some of the most stunning countryside, passing olive trees, cork oaks and vast wheat fields. Savour the breathtaking panoramic views as well as the unforgettable feeling of driving a Porsche Panamera.
Stop for lunch at an idyllic vineyard estate in Reguengos de Monsaraz. The tour then continues past a number of lakes and through the magnificent Alto Alentejo province to today’s destination: Évora, whose historic centre has been a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site since 1986. Spend the night at the M’AR De AR Aqueduto. Set in a 16th century palace, this five-star boutique hotel offers a beautiful chapel, vaulted ceilings and fantastic views of the aqueducts of Évora. In the evening, you will have the opportunity to sample the fine cuisine served in the hotel restaurant.
After a relaxing night’s sleep and a leisurely breakfast, it’s time to head north through the São Mamede Natural Park. Drive through the lush countryside with its bizarre quartz rock formations. Along the way, you’ll see a number of historical castles perched on top of the hills of Alentejo. Stop for a lunch of typical regional specialities in Constância, before focusing once again on exploring the dynamics of the Porsche Panamera. The route then takes you through the Estremadura region to Óbidos and your destination for the night: the Rio do Prado Hotel which opened in 2012. Your stay at this eco-friendly resort featuring luxurious, energy-efficient suites with floor-to-ceiling windows and garden views is sure to be a memorable one. Spend the rest of the day as you please, before joining the group for dinner at the hotel in the evening.
Today’s route takes you south – both inland and along the coast with its white sandy beaches and beautiful sand dunes. Soon after setting off, you will be greeted by impressive views of the famous Lagoa de Óbidos: the point at which the Atlantic Ocean meets Portugal’s largest lagoon. Enjoy lunch at a restaurant in Ericeira – right next to the sea. Then it’s back to the order of the day: pure, unadulterated driving pleasure. Continue along winding country roads and through the gently rolling hills of Sintra – the ideal location for a Porsche driving experience. In the afternoon, you head back to Lisbon. Here, you round off your tour of Portugal at one of the most innovative restaurants in this vibrant city – the award-winning Olivier Avenida Restaurant. Savour a range of exquisite Mediterranean and fusion dishes in this trendy setting, before spending your final night at the Four Seasons Hotel Ritz.
