We’re excited to announce two new itineraries that take you to Europe’s colorful outer edges, with each carefully created itinerary providing a deep focus on a single, multi-faceted country. Whether you crave some Mediterranean-style mezze in bustling Istanbul or a fresh fish dish from one of Portugal’s seaside villages, you’ll love taking a taste of these two vibrant destinations.
Portugal: Porto, Lisbon & the Algarve
Sample Port from the region’s best vineyards, dine on fresh delicacies from the sea and take in Lisbon’s colorful architecture while strolling down narrow tree-lined streets— you’ll see and experience it all during this lively tour. Explore the country’s rich maritime history with a visit to the Torre de Belem and Monument to the Discoveries. Discover the town of Lagos with its white-washed buildings before stopping in the walled-in medieval village of Óbidos.
Turkey: Istanbul & The Landscapes of Cappadocia
Relish the intriguing sights of the country where East meets West. Istanbul charms with its ancient, sky-high mosques and unexpectedly sophisticated feel. Try your hand at haggling with a visit to the jam-packed bazaar or experience true Turkish hospitality over tea with the locals. Don’t miss the lunar-like topography of the Turkish countryside, as well as the secret underground cities—there’s nowhere else on Earth quite like Cappadocia.
