About the Destinations:

Porto

Porto is a city of endless charms that combines a rich history, old buildings covered in colorful azulejos (hand-painted tiles), modern architecture, a picturesque riverfront and a high-spirited atmosphere that celebrates the joy of life.

Lisbon

Lisbon, the cosmopolitan capital of Portugal and Europe's second-oldest capital (after Athens), has now become the new "it" destination for tourists visiting Europe. Called "The City of the Sea" and "The City of the Explorers", this unique locale was once home to the world's greatest explorers, including Vasco da Gama, Magellan, and Prince Henry the Navigator. Lisbon is also the first true world city, the capital of an empire spreading over all continents, from South America (Brazil) to Asia (Macao, China; Goa, India). 

São Miguel Island, the Azores 

São Miguel Island

São Miguel Island, the largest of the Azores archipelago and its economic and administrative center, is a beautiful green jewel in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. With stunning lush landscapes, exotic plants, dormant volcanoes, hot springs, and surrounded by clean waters, São Miguel is the perfect vacation destination for nature lovers and those looking for an off-the-beaten-path European destination.

Explore the island and marvel at its natural beauty. Hike down a dormant volcano and relax on the beach surrounding its lake. Visit the only tea plantation in Europe and taste delicious locally-grown pineapple. Discover the historical city of Ponta Delgada, with its cobbled streets and black-and-white mosaic pavements.
