We start our tour in Coimbra. The first capital of the kingdom of Portugal still keeps its historic neighbourhoods as well as one of the oldest universities in the country. Considered a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, this thriving academic centre, allows you to stroll through narrow streets and ancient stone walls.
