(Breakfast, Dinner)

 

DAY 3: COIMBRA-FATIMA-OBIDOS- LISBON.

Enjoy an orientation tour of Coimbra, strategically situated on a hill overlooking the Mondego River. Continue to Fatima to visit the Sanctuary, a famous pilgrimage site where the Virgin Mary appeared to three shepherd children-Francisco, Jacinth, and Lucia-on May 13, 1917. On to Obidos, a fortified city

still flanked by towers and bastions overlooking the countryside dotted with windmills. Overnight in Lisbon. (Breakfast)

 

DAY 4: LISBON.

Henry the Navigator made Lisbon the 15th-century "Mistress of the Seas." You'll see his monument, the Belem Tower, the Moorish Citadel, the impressive Black Horse Square, and other highlights on your guided city tour. Spend the afternoon at leisure in the Alfama's tile-decorated streets, or

 discover the Portuguese Riviera by joining our optional excursion. (Breakfast)

 

DAY 5: LISBON-SEVILLE, SPAIN.

The splendid setting of this old walled city above the Tagus River was made famous in El Greco's painting-even now, it's like a great open-air museum of Spanish history and art.
