A tram ride with the locals will bring you to the historical Graça district, where you will become even more familiar with daily life in Lisbon. While pausing for photos at the more than 100-year-old Villa Bertha, you will enjoy superb views of the city and the Tagus River.

    Spend free time exploring a series of sea caves and an inland village that was the island’s first capital. The Ajuy sea caves are on the other side of Fuerteventura and on the way to this national monument you will get a genuine feel for the island’s volcanic landscape. To reach the voluminous caves, you will follow a short trail through bizarrely shaped, fossilized dunes. The caves’ gaping entries will be quite the sight as will the geological wonders inside. The stone towers that you will see along the walkways are old lime kilns that were used when many of the local residences were constructed. Time will also be allotted for you to meander through Betancuria, a village that French explorer Jean de Béthencourt founded in 1404. Although the Norman Gothic-style Church of Santa María de Betancuria is the architectural highlight, the Museum of Sacred Art is also well worth browsing.


    HIGHLIGHTS
    • Walk through the high-ceilinged Ajuy Sea Caves, a Canary Islands national monument.
    • Stroll at your leisure through the village of Betancuria, the island’s first capital.
    • Marvel at the island’s volcanic landscape as you travel to and from its western coast.


    HELPFUL HINTS
    • Dress in weather-appropriate clothing.
    • Wear flat comfortable walking shoes.

The city sits atop a Roman fishing town that a tsunami destroyed in the 5th century, and parts of it have been excavated. Fishing is still essential to Setubal, as you will discover at a bustling downtown market. Sardines, cuttlefish, oysters—they are all here on display, fresh from the docks where the fishermen have brought their morning’s catch. The guide will point out some of the most unusual species and introduce you to the vendors. While walking along a nearby promenade, you will likely see fishermen tending their nets. This will present another opportunity to interact with the locals and ask about their traditional livelihood, which new technology continues to influence. For a taste of the seafood that comes into Setubal, you will dine at a restaurant in town. The menu will include the local specialty “choco frito,” which is fried cuttlefish.


    HIGHLIGHTS:
    • Gain an understanding of how the sea has influenced the village of Setubal for centuries.
    • Browse a seafood market in Setubal and meet some of the vendors and local fishermen.

    Meander through the orchards at a family farm that makes Rocquette apple ciders and sample a remarkable variety of them. As you travel inland, you will notice the countryside becoming more and more agricultural. Although cider-making dates to the 1700s in the Channel Islands, it has experienced a renaissance. To meet the growing demand, the farm that you will visit planted an additional 5,000 apple trees over the past two decades. The owners also updated their equipment and altered their farming techniques for organic production. The result is a selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic ciders with distinct characters and crisp tastes. You will sample as many as nine Rocquette ciders that may include a refreshing draft with a prominent “appley” taste, a medium-strong aromatic cider blended with hops and a sweet cider made with raspberry juice. Local cheese, fresh-baked biscuits and the farm’s own apple chutneys will be served as accompaniments.

    HIGHLIGHTS
    • Visit a family farm with thousands of apple trees for the production of organic ciders.
    • Gain insight into the history of cider-making and the growing interest in cider.
    • Sample an inspired selection of apple ciders paired with cheeses, biscuits and chutneys.

    Experience local life by riding public transportation to several trendy neighborhoods where expats comfortably enjoy Lisbon’s leisurely lifestyle. A tram will take you through some of the city’s most affluent neighborhoods to the landmark basilica in Estrela.

You are sure to see plenty of locals and expats relaxing on the benches and strolling the winding garden paths. After a traditional cup of espresso-like coffee known locally as “bica,” you will ride the bus to the Principe Real neighborhood. During free time there, you might stroll the botanical gardens, or simply take in the spectacular views.

    • Join Lisbon’s expats in the neighborhoods where they now reside.
    • Get an authentic feel for what attracts the expats to Lisbon.
