API students participate in several excursions per session designed to help familiarize them with areas of their host city, country, and surrounding region. The following is a listing of all excursions for API Lisbon programs. All excursions are subject to change.

  • Sintra

    Following a short train ride from Rossio Station in Lisbon, tour the magnificent National Palace of Sintra, the best preserved medieval Royal Palace in Portugal. Students will tour the manor house and gardens of the romantic nineteenth-century Quinta da Regaleira estate, followed by lunch in the unique ambiance of Sintra’s restaurants (with traditional regional pastries). An afternoon walk around the Castle of the Moors, on the heights above town with excellent views of the coast, completes this trip.

  • Belem

    Belém is widely considered Lisbon’s most monumental and historical area. It was from here that many of the great Portuguese navigators embarked on their voyages of discovery, including Prince Henry the Navigator (bound for Cueta, Morocco), Bartholomeu Dias (who rounded the Cape of Good Hope), and Vasco da Gama (who discovered the route to India). Christopher Columbus also stopped here on his way back to Europe after “discovering” the New World. Lisbon and Portugal prospered during this period of discovery, with gold coming from the recent conquered New World. Belem Tower and Jeronimos Monastery were built as many as other great constructions during this time period. In addition to seeing these sites, students will be treated to the very famous custard tarts (Pastéis de Belém), at the Antiga Confeitaria de Belem which has been serving these delicious pastries since 1841.
