Optional Wine tour
Why not indulge yourself in a wine tour during your holiday ? This pre-bookable excursion is a great way to get to know Portuguese regional wines and wine-making processes, while discovering the Algarve countryside and its traditions. You’ll visit the historic hill town of Silves, taking a leisurely walk along cobbled streets to the impressive Moorish castle located at its highest point. Here you can enjoy a Port wine tasting and some free time to explore. Follow this with a visit to a family-run vineyard and winery where there will be tastings of red, white and rosé wines along with a typical Portuguese petisco (snack) of chouriço (cured sausage), smoked ham and cheeses.
Entrance into the Castle is extra from €2.80 per person.
