Discover Portugal's Treasures and hidden gems with WCQS next spring. We invite you to join WCQS President Jody Evans for a special customized Explorations tour from Collette Vacations - April 9 - 20, 2015.
From the rhythms of Fado to the realm of the Knights Templar, we'll explore this Iberian gem. We'll travel to the Portuguese Riviera, beautiful countryside and its oldest cities. Highlights include: luxurious accommodations in a series of pousadas – elegant, unique, historic hotels. 10 UNESCO World Heritage sites, including the Tower of Belem; an exploration of Porto, a beautiful city and the birthplace of Prince Henry the Navigator; marvel at the priceless treasures of the Royal Palace Ducal and the National Museum of Coaches. We'll follow the contours of the Douro River and savor local wines from the world’s oldest wine making region. Next up we'll linger in Cascais on the Portuguese Riviera. And the secrets of Portuguese cuisine will come to life during an interactive cooking class. Join us as we raise a glass of the nation’s renowned Port and toast a land with a fascinating past and modern charm.
