Once known as the ‘Rome of the East', Goa is packed with religious monuments, grand cathedrals and colonial relics. On this full day tour, you'll visit both her capitals, past and present. Panaji – the current one – and Old Goa, the former seat of Portuguese power. Along the way you'll have an expert guide and enjoy a delicious lunch.
Where better to start your journey than the former capital, Old Goa. As the seat of Portuguese rule for 200-years, it's steeped in rich history and architecture. In the Basilica of Bom Jesus, you'll discover sacred relics before moving on to the Se Cathedral to see its golden bell – the largest in Asia.
Then, it's on to Panaji for a shopping stop in the city centre. And after a tasty buffet lunch at the Goa Marriott or Vivanta by Taj, you'll head for a rickshaw ride around the city's old quarter. Trundling through narrow lanes and small squares, you'll round off at the bustling daily market where free time to shop or explore ends your day.
