Celebrate the New 7 Wonders of the World in Lisbon


On July 7, 2007, you can view history in the making as the New 7 Wonders of the World are announced in Lisbon, Portugal.

The New 7 Wonders initiative began in 2001, with people from around the world nominating sites to rival ancient wonders like the Hanging Gardens of Babylon and the Colossus of Rhodes. The New 7 Wonders of the World will be announced on July 7, 2007, at a spectacular gala event broadcast via satellite from the Official Declaration ceremony in Lisbon Portugal. Which sites will take the top honors? The Acropolis? Machu Picchu? Stonehenge? The world will know on July 7, and you can be there.

Abreu Tours offers 3-night and 6-night packages starting at just $431 per person (double occupancy), including admission to the New 7 Wonders extravaganza. Choose from 3, 4 or 5-star hotels, with optional airfare and car rental.
