Business and Cultural Trip 2018

Friends of Portugal and A Ponte are pleased to offer a unique opportunity to explore the business and culture of Portugal.

Join us in Fall 2018 for a 9-day journey to Portugal and learn why this beautiful country was recently named “Best European Destination” by World Travel Awards. 

In addition to visits w/ Friends of Portugal’s leadership and project managers of A Ponte, Sete Cases, and Espaço Vida Mais, we will visit cities rich with culture and history, such as Lisbon, Colares, and Porto, and tour landmarks such as Discoverer’s Monument and Jeronimo’s Monastery, among others.   

The itinerary will focus on history/culture, education/ministry, business/entrepreneurship, or a mix based on the overall interests of the group. Based on those interests, our trip will include several days meeting with entrepreneurs, touring companies (industries could include some of the country’s major economic drivers such as wine, cork, & marble), universities, and historic landmarks.
