This itinerary will show you the interior of Portugal, driving you through the countryside roads of Alentejo for a beautiful sightseeing trip. Enjoy beautiful landscapes, typical of the Alentejo region, where the scenery changes to endless plains with cork trees offering shade to sheep and cows, and undulating hills of wheat and vineyards that hide Moorish castles and rustic farm houses. The trip will lead you to Évora, one of the most emblematic Portuguese cities, known for important Roman presence at the time of occupation of the peninsula. Here you’ll have enough time to walk in its historical centre and "feel" this valuable cultural legacy that UNESCO has classified World Heritage. After that you can choose among visiting Arraiolos, worldwide known for the famous and genuine Arraiolos tapestry where you can see the embroiderers working in the streets, or visit a famous Wine farm and its facilities where after a guided visit into their old cellars, you will relax and have a wine tasting, or visit Vila Viçosa with a rich history and an enviable heritage, being known as the "Princess of Alentejo".
