Sights & Sounds of History
Magnificently positioned on a series of hills that slope down to the great Tagus river, Lisbon is one of the world’s most scenic cities. The picturesque streets are full of colors, with characteristic trams zipping up and down, incredible gastronomy, and a pleasant climate that makes this one of the most beloved capital cities in Europe. The city has an unpolished, seductive appearance, with effortless beauty and captivating details found in the cobblestone streets, tiled facades and pastel colored buildings, all blending together to create a unique atmosphere.
Lisbon intertwines its distinctly different souls together, from the vibrant and cosmopolitan districts of Chiado and Bairro Alto to the more traditional and popular neighborhoods, such as Alfama, where the traditional Portuguese Fado music was first born. In a city as stunning as this, it is no wonder that many of the world's great explorers asked themselves what other beauty might exist beyond the horizon, as they set out on their explorations from this exact place in the 15th century.
Four of you will stay in a charming apartment for 5 evenings, situated in the heart of Lisbon, with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, a cozy living area, wifi, and AC in all of the rooms. This modern and comfortable property is the perfect base for exploring the city.
The four of you will venture out on a full-day trip to nearby Sintra to visit the renowned, gorgeous palaces and estates that truly seem to have come straight from a fairy tale! A private driver will bring you to visit the former royal retreats of Pena Palace and Quinta da Regaleira, stroll through the Unesco site of Sintra, enjoy the ocean air of Cascais, and visit Cabo da Roca, the westernmost point of continental Europe.
No visit to Lisbon would be complete without experiencing a live Fado show, a form of Portuguese singing and music born on the streets of the city and often associated with pubs, cafés, and restaurants in the region. You will enjoy a delicious, traditional dinner in a typical local restaurant while being entertained by an emotional, live Fado performance.
