8 DAYS / 7 NIGHTS  from Porto to Lisbon



Welcome to Portugal! Upon arrival, meet and greet by an English speaking driver and transfer to Hertz Station to pick up your motorcycle. Ride up to Porto for 2 memorable nights.

Accommodation: Porto for 2 nights at Hotel Porto Bay Teatro or similar



After breakfast we suggest a quick visit to Porto’s major sights, such as, visit to magnificent Porto city: Avenue dos Aliados, Torre dos Clérigos, and Lello bookshop. Continue towards Vila Nova de Gaia to visit the Porto wine cellars and some tasting. If any time is left, ride to Foz (coast) and enjoy the beautiful sights.



After breakfast at the hotel, the challenge begins. Point the wheel to the historical N108 and follow the Douro River upstream doing the same corners that Porto Wine did (but backwards). You will find a huge number of small scenic villages. Stop at your convenience, either to take a breath or to admire this astonishing landscape.

Accommodation: Sabrosa for 1 night at Quinta da Veiga or similar  



Breakfast at the hotel. Continue this adventure by taking the National roads, crossing south of the Douro River and entering this mountainous area of the Portuguese interior. Here, in the region, the granite rock predominates and it is possible to observe huge natural formations of this mineral.

Accommodation: Belmonte for 1 night at Convento de Belmonte or similar

We highly recommend visiting the following villages:

Marialva, built on top of a mountain, imposingly rising as a town frozen in time, this village takes you to the deepest roots of the country’s history, in a scenario that reveals one of the living relics of Portuguese ancestry. The streets are lined up with buildings that have stood the test of time and lead to the citadel surrounded by gothic walls. Settled by the Aravi, it was later conquered by the Romans, then the Arabs until the final victory of King Fernando the Great in his historic conquest of the Beiras in 1063. Nowadays, with its imposing castle, walls and a solid keep rising from the rocks, Marialva stands out in the Interior Beira landscape, rising like a memory from medieval times.

Trancoso, today’s peace and quiet in its centuries-old castle, contrast with the alarms and fears experienced by people of other times. It was a border town, the stage for fights and battles that were decisive to the formation and independence of the kingdom. Cherished by kings, it received important privileges. King Afonso Henriques granted it a municipal charter and King Afonso III a fair charter. King Dinis commissioned the construction of the walls that still protect a town where Christians and Jews lived side by side.

Almeida, because of the need to modernise its outdated medieval structures, after the restoration (1641), Almeida built a new war infrastructure that was suited to the new artillery enabling it to control the border. The stronghold is hexagonal in shape and consists of six bulwarks, each with its own ravelin. The town within the walls still has a substantial number of military buildings and very interesting civil architecture.

Castelo Rodrigo, as a whole, is a genuine location of monuments preserving important medieval references. The most valuable features of its historical heritage are the old walls, the ruins of Cristóvão de Moura Palace, the 16th-century pillory, the medieval church, the parish church, the medieval cistern and inscriptions attesting to the existence of a substantial new-Christian community. For more than 600 years, Castelo Rodrigo was a town and municipal seat. More than once in the country’s history, its inhabitants showed their courage and loyalty to the crown.

Castelo Mendo, this predominantly medieval village is divided into two walled sections, the Citadel and Barbican. The oval citadel is the old town, which grew up after a charter from King Sancho II. The new town, or Arrabalde de S. Pedro, is protected by a Dionysian wall that once boasted eight towers. They were partially destroyed by the 1755 earthquake. It still has its five gates, however (Vila, Guarda, Sol, Traição and D. Sancho gates).





After breakfast, enjoy the historical city of Belmonte. On the way to Sertã we highly recommend visiting the following villages:

Sortelha, one of the oldest and most beautiful towns in Portugal. It has kept its physiognomy all this time and is considered one of the best preserved town. A visit through its streets and alleys, enclosed in a defensive ring and watched over by a lofty 13th century castle takes outsiders back to past centuries among medieval tombs, by the Manueline pillory or in front of the renaissance church.

Castelo Novo, set in a natural amphitheater, located in the heart of Serra da Gardunha, in shades of green and grey, we find Castelo Novo, one of Portugal’s historical villages, enveloped in an aura of mystery. Here we feel something fascinating that surrounds and balances us. Everything inspires us, captivates us, from the sound of water gushing from the springs to the timeless granite that sustains the village and carves its dwellings, the temples, paving, squares, all a matchless architectural heritage.

Sertã, located in the center of Portugal, is ideal for any traveler wishing to discover the most authentic Portugal with incredible scenic beauty: 80% of the region is surrounded by the reservoirs of Cabril, Bouçã and Castelo de Bode and the villages of Xisto (stone villages)

Accommodation: 1 night in Sertã at Convento da Serta or similar


DAY 6 SERTA - LISBON (209km)

Breakfast at the hotel. On the way to Lisbon, stop in Tomar – the development of the city is closely linked to the Order of the Templars, which received these lands in 1159 as a reward for the assistance they gave Dom Afonso Henriques (the First King of Portugal) in the Christian reconquest of the territory. It was Dom Gualdim Pais, the first Grand Master of the Order in Portugal, who founded the castle and the remarkable interior of Convent of Christ. Enlarged and altered over the centuries, this retains the influences of various architectural styles. It is the centerpiece of the city and classified as a World Heritage site by UNESCO.

Accommodation: Lisbon for 2 nights at Hotel Neya or similar



After breakfast at the hotel we suggest a visit to discover Lisbon: Edward VII Park, Liberty Avenue, Rossio Square, and Quarter of Belem, from which the Portuguese Caravels sailed off to the epic maritime discoveries. Jerónimos Monastery and the Tower of Belem, both considered as World Heritage, which represent the most luxurious and prestigious times of the Portuguese Monarchy. Sintra, the town where the royal family spent their summers and where you will find the town’s National Palace, the impressive and romantic Pena Palace. Cascais, with its Boca do Inferno wave waterspout and the magnificent panorama out over the Bay of Cascais and the coast, and, finally, Estoril with its famous Casino.



After breakfast, return of the motorcycle at the Hertz station located in Lisbon’s city center.

Transfer to Lisbon airport.

Lisbon is also a must with its World Heritage monuments, Jerónimos Monastery and the Tower of Belem, the quarters of Alfama and Mouraria, the magnificent St. George’s Castle. Get back to Estoril by the seaside road “marginal” following the flow of Tejo River.

Northwest Óbidos, the charming medieval walled town of Óbidos within the old beautiful castle walls and known for its typical white houses, flowered windows and narrow streets paved with beautiful stone.

Once there, take the direction of Salir, Alte, São Marcos da Serra and finally, Monchique. This part of these historic villages is mandatory as it portraits a different Algarve that is not often seen and the roads are inviting and must be discovered.  Once in Monchique and before getting to the hotel, “climb” to Foia and enjoy the view of the highest point on this southern region.

Accommodation: Portimão for 1 night at Jupiter Algarve or similar
