Explore the sights and sounds of Portugal’s engaging capital city on our seven-night Lisbon City Break.
Lisbon is a city with many faces. It guarded the western fringes of the Roman and Moorish empires, and was the grandiose centre of Portugal’s medieval overseas kingdom. It was devastated by earthquakes and tsunamis, and witnessed the rise of a royal dynasty and the fall of an oppressive dictatorship. As a dynamic, 21st century city, modern-day Lisbon attracts visitors from across the globe with its inspiring seasonal cuisine, its celebrated architecture and the neighbourly welcome of its population.
Our Lisbon City Break puts you in the heart of the capital, with it’s most-popular districts right on your doorstep: the jumbled medieval streets of Alfama, the ostentatious architecture of the riverfront Praca Comercio, the charming bookshops and coffee houses of Chiado, and the fabulous restaurants and café bars of Bairro Alto. Your stay begins with an electric tuk-tuk tour – the ideal introduction to Lisbon, its layout and its history – followed by a visit to historic Belem and the beautiful 16th century Jeronimos Monastery. You’ll also have a chance to explore further afield: our guides will show you the fairy tale palaces of Sintra, the white sands of Cascais, and the Moorish castles and Moscatel vineyards of Arrabida.
It's a short walk from your hotel to the riverfront Praca do Comercio, via the impressive Arco da Rua Augusta triumphal arch – Alfama’s famous Fado venues are to the east and the restaurants and café bars of Bairro Alto are to the west. We also have a handy online guide to our favourite restaurants in Lisbon.
