Discovering Portugal | May 1 - 13, 2022

Begin with a three-night sojourn in Lisbon, one of the world’s oldest cities, offering highlights aplenty, including the iconic Belém Tower and the Monument to the Discoveries. Travel north to the medieval city center of Oporto, a UNESCO site, and enjoy a private cruise along the Douro River to a port lodge, where you have the opportunity to taste the region’s renowned wine. In the pastoral Alentejo region, spend two nights in a 13th-century castle restored as a pousada before continuing south to encounter Portugal’s maritime legacy in Sagres. After, return to Lisbon to spend a night in a restored 19th-century palace, a fitting finale to our adventure.

Space is limited to just 24 guests and will be shared with participants from a cosponsoring alumni association. Please contact the Alumni Travel Study Program at travelstudy@columbia.edu or 866-325-8664 for more details and to reserve your place on this great adventure!
