DETAILED ITINERARY

Day 1: Arrival in Lisbon

Day 2: Exploring Lisbon

This morning, enjoy a full-day tour of the Lisbon’s most significant districts, from the waterfront Baixa to the rambling heights of Bairro Alto. After enjoying a delicious lunch, make your way to Belem to visit Jeronimos Monastery and the elaborate Torre de Belem.

 

Day 3: More Time in Lisbon

Move outside of Lisbon today to explore nearby Sintra, which is believed to be a place of mystical power by Portugal's ancient Celts. The occult-inspired Quinta da Regaleira exhibits that belief in its mythological symbolism and hidden grottoes. Enjoy towering views from the Palacio da Pena and Palacio Nacional, have lunch in town before you head back to Lisbon.

 

Day 4: Visiting Monsaraz

Today morning, head out east from Lisbon to Alentejo region of Portugal. Your first stop will be the capital of the region, Evora, which is known for its Roman ruins, Moorish alleyways, and Gothic cathedral before continuing further onto a wine-sampling lunch just outside the city. After lunch, return back to your hotel which is located deep in the Alentejo countryside.

 

Day 5: A Day Tour of Monsaraz

Spend your entire day today at leisure relishing the many facilities that your hotel has to offer. You can also rent a bike to drive through the hotel's sprawling property or pamper yourself at the Suzanne Kaufmann spa.

 

Day 6: Some More Time in Monsaraz

Spend another day at leisure at the hotel, taking advantage of the hotel's options that you did not get to experience yesterday. Wander around the hotel vineyards, culminating in a tasting, or make your way for stargazing at night in the observatory.

 

Day 7: Heading to Lamego

Wave goodbye to Porto this morning as you head out north to the Douro Valley. En route, stop in the countryside for a private cooking session, learning about traditional meals while relishing lunch in a family home. After a post-lunch walk of the property, make your way north to check in at the Six Senses Douro Valley, which is the luxury spa brand's first hotel in Europe.

 

Day 8: Exploring Lamego

Spend a full day today exploring the hills and vineyards of the Douro Valley and sampling wines at some of the region's best producers. Start your day with a port winery tour and tasting before you head out to a winery with sweeping views for lunch. There will be enough time to fit in a final tasting on your way back to the hotel.

 

Day 9: Venturing to High Atlas Mountains

Your adventure will continue today as you head south across the Mediterranean to Marrakesh in Morocco. A guide will be waiting to escort you from the airport directly into the High Atlas Mountains to a relaxing kasbah-hotel where you can soak up the views.

 

Day 10: Tour of High Atlas Mountains

Today morning, head out exploring more panoramic scenery on a guided hike through the Ourika Valley accompanied by a guide. The hiking routes vary from easy to difficult. Your guide can customize the hike to suit you. Along the way, stop in a traditional village to spend some quality time with a local family in their home, sharing experiences over a cup of mint tea.

 

Day 11: Traveling to Marrakesh

This morning, get ready to travel back to Marrakesh and your riad, which is situated in the heart of the medina. Later in the afternoon, relax on the roof terrace or make your way out exploring the souqs.

 

Day 12: Exploring Marrakesh

Today, you’ll make your way for a full-day tour of Marrakesh, visiting the major historical sites such as the Koutoubia Mosque, Bahia Palace, the Saadien Tombs, and the Jewish Quarter. Later in the afternoon, the focus will be on the cultural aspect of the city, making your way through the various artisan areas within the souqs. End your day with dinner in the Djemaa el Fna, which gets lively with food stalls, scribes, henna artists, and musical performers every evening.

 

Day 13: Departure Back Home

This morning, set out to explore one final highlight in Morocco, the Hassan II Mosque, which is an excruciating example of Moroccan architecture situated around two and a half hours away in Casablanca. After the tour, venture to Casablanca International Airport for your flight back home.
