We’re going to be having more of these scrumptious meals in our journey through Italy, Spain, and Portugal.
How About Some Wine and Olive Oil?
The Italians are all about good wine and great olive oil. We’re going to have a guided walking tour around the charming medieval town of Umbria. In between the guided tours, we’ll have time to see the town’s shops and cafes, participate in a cooking lesson, visit a local winery to sample the region’s most prized wine and finally, learn about the locally produced olive oil. There will be plenty of wines to sip and places to see, so you might want to use your time wisely!
Walk through Time
Toledo’s declared a World Heritage Site and was the capital of medieval Spain. If you’re into medieval castles and towers, cathedrals, Moorish, Mudéjar, Gothic and Renaissance architecture then a trip to Toledo in Spain will be one of your favorite stops on this journey. Toledo boasts amazing art, culture, and architecture. A few of the places to see in Toledo are the Santa Maria La Blanca Synagogue, the Church of Santo Tome and the Burial of the Count of Orgaz. But don’t fall in love with this city just yet, we’re going to have a few more stops along our trip.
A trip to the Museum and Txikiteo, Anyone?
What trip would be complete without a trip to the museum? We’re going to visit the Guggenheim Museum, a masterpiece of 20th-century architecture designed by architect Frank Gehry in Bilbao. A trip to the museum will be followed by a bar crawl or what locals call “Txikiteo”. Don’t forget to enjoy various “Pintxos” while drinking the local cider!
The Playground of the Kings
The Portuguese Riviera obtained its name as the playground of the kings when the country’s royal family made the seaside town their residence in the 1870’s. This attracted more of Portugal’s aristocracy to live in the area and the royal families of other countries as well such as Edward VIII of the United Kingdom and Juan Carlos I of Spain. We’ll also have the chance to visit the charming village of Sintra that’s filled with royal retreats, estates, fairy tale-like castles.
These are just some of the places we’ll get to visit in our wonderful 23-day trip. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity that you simply don’t want to miss. Go over to http://victor.travel/ or call us at 08 8552 8001 to know more.
