Why we love this deal:

  • This deal is perfect for those who want to have the best of both worlds – exploring the cosmopolitan delights of Portugal’s capital city, while also getting to experience three of the nation's most popular island locales! 
  • Start your Portugal adventure by flying to Terceira followed by São Miguel before you head to the magical island of Madeira. Your adventure ends in Lisbon, exciting Portugal's capital. 
  • For those unfamiliar, the Azores, a captivating cluster of nine idyllic islands located 900 miles off the coast of Portugal, is an off-the-beaten-path destination packed with natural beauty, striking landscapes, and unique authenticity.  And we must mention Madeira. With so much to offer visitors, it's easy to see why this dreamy island was elected  "World's Leading Island Destination" from 2015 to 2021 by the World Travel Awards.
  • But that's not all! We still have to talk about Portugal´s capital city! With friendly locals, exquisite cuisine, sunny skies, charming cobbled streets and a modern vibe, Lisbon is a delightful experience for any visitor.

Lisbon

Lisbon

The gateway to both the Atlantic and the Mediterranean, Lisbon is a dynamic port city that fuses together two distinct but complementary lifestyles, providing visitors with the perfect mix of European culture, cuisine, and cosmopolitan flair. Regal palaces and cathedrals, busy markets and plazas, and quiet city gardens converge to create the unique rhythm of Lisboeta life. While strolling along the mosaic sidewalks, you'll likely hear beautiful fado music echoing from tiny tavern patios, see colorful clotheslines strung between open windows, and smell the mix of delicious herbs and garlic wafting through the air from local al fresco restaurants in the Alfama quarter or Bairro Alto. If you appreciate old-world architecture, be sure to visit the Padrao dos Descobrimentos, the Mosteiro dos Jeronimos, and the UNESCO World Heritage site of Torre de Belem.
