Upon your arrival, Lisbon will delight you from the first impression. Almost every building seems to hold you captive and every plaza has its own energy and style, which will encourage you to linger. Each neighborhood presents a different side to the city, and the contrasts between Baixa and Alfama will be just one example on your first day. You’ll be greeted at the airport by a guide and transferred to a 19th-century palace turned guesthouse, where the gardens are a tranquil place to relax and unwind. Spend the late-afternoon hours on an orientation tour, as you stroll through the Portuguese capital and get to know what makes it so unique. For the evening meal, you will have a choice of legendary Lisbon chefs, who each serve an iconic local dish at the vibrant Time Out Lisbon Market.
