What you'll do

We will sail up the Arade River, on my solar boat, from Portimão and to the medieval city of Silves. When we get there we will walk around and discover the city. You can visit the Castle and/or the Cathedral, but you must try the most famous Silves Orange Juice (the visit in the city will take 1.30h). On our way back we will relax in the river and have another glass of Portuguese wine...
