The itinerary for this tour is as follows:
Visit to Fátima- one of the most important centers of pilgrimage in the world and where the Miracle of the Apparition of Our Lady of Fátima happened. You will have free time to visit the shrines.
The Chapel of Apparitions marks the place where the Virgin Mary appeared in 1917 to the 3 little shepherds to convey to them a message of peace.. The children were told by the Blessed Virgin Mary that she would perform a miracle so that the people would believe them and on the 13th October, a crowd of more than 70,000 people came to see the “Miracle of the Sun”, signifying God’s presence amongst the people. Fatima is one of the most important Catholic Shrines in the World. Still here, we will go through the religious articles factory where you can purchase your rosary and other religious articles to be blessed in the sanctuary.
Visit Mosteiro de Batalha, considered as one of the Seven Wonders of Portugal.
This small town was the scene of great Portuguese historical moments of great importance for our country and the biggest remainder that we have from that time is the Batalha Monastery, that is considered World Heritage by UNESCO and elected as one of the Seven Wonders of Portugal. It is the largest Portuguese Gothic monument and is also the place where the Manueline style was born.
Visit Mosteiro de Alcobaça, considered World Heritage by UNESCO founded in 1178 by the Cistercian Order that had a lot of influence in the creation of the kingdom of Portugal.
This beautiful site is also where remains buried the most tragic love story of Portugal: King Pedro I and his beloved Inês de Castro, who was murdered by order of Pedro's father.
Visit the beautiful fishermen village of Nazaré with a XII century peculiar shrine and where star surfer McNamara beat world records on our famous giant waves.
The best place to go here is on the top of the cliff that is called - Sítio da Nazaré, where is the first place in Portugal where Our Lady was worshiped.
Last but not least is Óbidos, an enchanting medieval village of Óbidos where you will taste the original “Ginjinha” liquor.
This village that belonged to the Queens of Portugal, still lives surrounded by the walls of its castle. They can be crossed by the upper banks and from there you can observe the landscapes around the village and you can also stroll along its characteristic streets.
We look forward to showing you exciting parts of our Portugal.

How many days are enough for Europe?
You can spend a couple of months exploring Europe and still feel like you have not seen everything. Generally speaking, a two-week Europe trip should be just enough if you are looking to cover its major highlights. However, if you want a comprehensive travel experience within this duration, it is better that you focus on a region or a few countries rather than traveling all over the continent.
Choose a single country or schedule your trip around a handful of cities in different countries. While larger European cities may require three to four days to explore, you can get around smaller destinations in a day or two. Planning your trip around a particular region will cut down your travel time and save your time in transit.
How do I plan a 15-day trip to Europe?
If you are planning to visit multiple countries, you should prepare a tentative list of destinations you are interested in. If it is your first trip, stick to major cities and cultural centers for the sake of simplicity and convenience. Also, be flexible and optimize your travel time and budget. Be open to changing your itinerary depending on schedules and ticket prices.
Where to travel in Europe?
Europe has swathes of spectacular landscapes, a rich history, and vibrant cultures. Therefore, deciding on the best travel destinations on the continent can be difficult. However, you can narrow down on highlights by choosing one overarching theme for your trip.
If you are looking forward to immersing yourself in art and history, then Italy, Spain, and France should be on the top of your list. Head for Switzerland, Norway, or Croatia if nature is what you love the most. For beaches and water sports, you will be hard-pressed to find better destinations than Greece, Portugal, and Montenegro.
Having said that, you can also diversify your itinerary by mixing and matching different elements of the same country. Italy tops the charts not just for its medieval monuments and Renaissance art but also for coastal scenery and sun-soaked beaches. Similarly, Spain is a foodie paradise as much as it is an architectural hotspot.
How to travel around Europe cheap?
Bus services like FlixBus and BusAbout offer a convenient means of transport if you wish to move from one city to another within the same country. Although these services do travel between countries, they might not be the best choice due to a longer travel time.
Budget airlines are another great way to get around Europe’s major cities, especially when you want to cut down on travel time between two countries. Keep an eye out and you might be able to snag tickets at unbelievable rates. Services like Skyscanner can be of help. Some of the largest budget airlines in the continent are Ryanair, WizzAir, Eurowings, and EasyJet.
Ridesharing services are a godsend for those wishing to immerse themselves in local culture as they offer you the chance to catch a ride with locals along the way. BlaBlaCar is the largest one. The only downside is that it is not always as easy to book a rideshare service as it is to catch a bus or hop on a budget flight.
What is the best travel insurance for Europe?
There are dozens of insurance companies offering travel insurance, which can make it difficult for you to choose the right one.
There are a number of things that you should be aware of while purchasing travel insurance. If it is comprehensive medical insurance plans that you are interested in, make sure to find out what all the plan covers. If you are concerned about certain scenarios, then check out customizable travel insurance policies and find out if the provider can cover you for those situations. You also need to determine if there are reasonable coverage limits. Check deductibles and compensation limits in the insurance policy for this.
While insurance is important, it is mostly a safeguard against emergencies. If you are on a budget, you can go with the second- or even third-best option and prioritize getting your money’s worth instead of purchasing the most comprehensive coverage.
