Detailed Description

Lisbon will lead you on a journey into the time of the Moors as you wander among palaces with origins unknown, through the vibrancy of today with cobblestone streets that are laced in color and chic vibes, and across the plains of old-world Portugal to medieval towns like Obidos and Evora. You will be thrown into an immersive tale of a city and country, which will be illustrated by Fado music, Manueline architecture, and elegant vineyards. Handcrafted as the ultimate one-week Lisbon itinerary, these seven days will celebrate the best of a city and its surroundings with private tours and an exclusive inside perspective of one of the world’s finest upcoming travel destinations.

Throughout your stay, you will be staying at a luxurious accommodation in the city center. Two day trips will provide you with a taste of wider Portugal, while private day tours will slowly build your impressions of this enchanting city. From backstreet graffiti to glorious palaces and from the original pastel de nata to contemporary Lisbon cuisine, these will be seven days of unique experiences and authentic sights. By the time you fly home, you will have discovered the real Lisbon.

Taking tram route 28 is an excellent way to get acquainted with the city on day one. For day two, a local guide will lead you into Lisbon’s grand history, including an intimate look at the Manueline architectural style that gives the city such a distinctive feel. On day three, you can indulge in a day trip to Alentejo, where vineyards and the stunning old town of Evora reside. Back in Lisbon, you will gasp at Moorish history in Sintra before settling in to the decorous coastal luxury of Cascais. By traveling into edgy Lisbon, you will have a private backstreet art tour on day five, which will be followed by a beautiful evening of Fado music. That still leaves time for a day trip to Obidos and other majestic attractions north of Lisbon. It is a lot for a week, and you will love how the city is vibrant and laid-back at the same time.
