The Presidential : Prices / Book

The Presidential is Portugal's Premier Luxury Experience, redesigned to bring the World's leading culinary talents to the most beautiful corners of the country, aboard the most exquisite train in Portugal's history. 

Season 2020

The crown jewel of Portugal’s railway, the Presidential Train has hosted Kings, Presidents, Heads of State and Popes for over a century. Built in 1890, it served the court of King D. Luis I as the Portuguese Royal Train, transporting dignitaries like Queen Elizabeth II and Pope Paul VI. Renamed The Presidential Train at the turn of the century, it proudly transported Portugal’s Heads of State until 1970, when it was officially retired.

In 2010 the emblematic train was magnificently restored to its luxurious standard, maintaining the original furnishing and style that made it iconic, and has since been showcased in the National Railway Museum as the most important piece of our railway history.

Retrieved from the past, the Presidential Train is moving again. All aboard!
