Day 1 Welcome to Alentejo – Evora : Open air museum
In and around Évora the Roman times come back to life. Ride through a well-preserved city center, full of extraordinary monuments (UNESCO world heritage) and lined with romantic cobble-stoned lanes.

Day 2 Travel Back to the Megalith Times
Quiet back roads will take you to some of the most important Megalithic Monuments in the Iberia. Once in Arraiolos, well known for its hand-made tapestries, mingle with the locals at the main square and admire it’s Celtic round shaped castle. (52km/32m or 25km/15m)

Day 3 Ride along a Secluded Rails to Trails
As you ride along the Rails to Trails and across the vast plains you will understand the essence of the Alentejo Region. The slow pace living and the memories of a long gone lifestyle will become evident as you enjoy quietness of the valleys. (25km/15m)

Day 4 Fairwell
One last chance to admire Evora before leaving the quietness of the Alentejo

The accommodation was excellent, GPS and daily schedule was well-organised, easy to follow and full of useful information. We enjoyed all the prehistoric sites.

Guest Reviews about this Tour

Road Self-Guided Bike Tour

This was a great one to do with the kids — terrain was do-able and while there was cultural interest, we weren’t spending a couple of hours a day at museums as we did in several cities in Italy (which our 11 year old would not have liked) or focusing much on the wine as we did there.
