Admire the Tagus river bay while crossing the Ponte Vasco da Gama (17km long) one of the longest bridges in Europe. Ascend the Pamela Castle Tower for an amazing photo opportunity. Drive through the Arrabida wine region, passing many vineyards, cork and olive trees. Visit a beautiful local family owned wine farm in the heart of Arrábida park, then it is time to taste some wine. Take spectacular photos from the highest point of the Arrábida Natural Park (500m peak) with breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean. Feel the sand of the beautiful Portinho da Arrábida beach. Lunch at the picturesque fishing village of Sesimbra and relax on the beach. Enjoy two free wine tastings (Moscatel and Red wine), on the guided tour of an old wine cellar in the village of Azeitão.
