Lisbon and the Algarve with Cristina Duarte
Enjoy our live Monday Night Travel party with this video recorded on February 13, 2023.
Once famous for great navigators departing for New World riches, today's southern Portugal is a treasure chest of travel thrills. Tour guide extraordinaire Cristina Duarte returns to Monday Night Travel to give us a tour of her hometown of Lisbon, a rustic city where vintage trolleys shiver up hills, wistful fado singers recall salty sailors, and locals stroll mosaic sidewalks. From Lisbon, we head south to Portugal's warm and beachy Algarve region to arm wrestle octopuses in the sleepy fishing village of Salema and explore the windswept Land's End of Europe.
