Visit Sunny Portugal with Michigan Public - November 14 - 23, 2024 - SOLD OUT

**This trip package is sold-out. Please check other destinations you can travel to with Michigan Public. Thank you!**

You can join Michigan Public Program Director Matt Shafer Powell on a ten-day journey to sunny Portugal. You’ll explore Lisbon, Portugal's capital, where old customs and ancient history intermix with modern cultural entertainment. Visit quiet whitewashed villages and the charming Portuguese countryside filled with groves of orange and almond trees.

Your journey will take you to Evora – the “Museum City of Portugal,” and the stunning coasts of the Algarve - the southernmost region of the country. Protected by hills to the north and warmed by the sea, the Algarve’s mild climate and beautiful beaches attract visitors from all over the world. You’ll explore the historic resort town of Lagos, where Moorish and Renaissance influences meet towering seaside cliffs. You’ll visit the Portuguese Riviera in Cascais, where mansions hint at this area’s history as a haven for exiled European royals and nobility. And throughout the trip, you’ll also have the opportunity to listen to local artists perform traditional Fado music, meet local artisans at family-run shops, tour a winery and sample wines in the Alentejo region, visit local markets rich with displays of fresh fruits, vegetables and bread, and enjoy wonderful regional meals.
