Hey fellow travellers!
Excited to meet another Portuguese city? This time we are taking you to first capital and the host of the oldest university of Portugal, Coimbra! Also known as “Cidade dos Estudantes” (the city of students) and, therefore, has a remarkable academic tradition as you will see.
Trip to Coimbra
Saturday, 18th of November, 8.30 am @ Reitoria
To start the day in the best way possible, we will take you on a tour around this beautiful city! After that, we will visit “Portugal dos Pequenitos”, where you’ll have the chance to feel like a giant (or a kid again!) among original representations of the most iconic Portuguese monuments.
Next, we are taking you to “Quinta das Lágrimas”, where, according to the legend, a tragic love story between D. Pedro, a Portuguese Prince, and his lover, Inês de Castro, took place.
At the end, we’ll chill for a bit and maybe you’ll have a special surprise! ;D
