April 17 to 27, 2022

Join associate professor Vincent Barletta, who specializes in Iberian and Latin American cultures, on a leisurely exploration of Portugal, combining unhurried and immersive stays in Lisbon and Porto with a countryside sojourn amid the cork oaks of the Alentejo.

Get around. Venture into Lisbon’s most picturesque neighborhoods aboard a privately rented electric tram as well as by tuk-tuk, funicular and historical wrought-iron lift. Farm to table. Stroll through Setúbal’s enticing market, watch a cooking demonstration at a sustainable farm, and find out about cork, olive oil and wine production at some of Portugal’s most storied estates or quintas. Hands on. Meet young apprentices who are studying age-old techniques of furniture restoration and learn to make azulejos (Portuguese tiles). Gastronomes and oenophiles. Delight in memorable meals and tastings at family-run eateries, neighborhood favorites, an elegant palace in Sintra, premier country vineyards and fine restaurants.
