Lisbon – Arrive in Portugal’s Charming Capital
Lisbon shimmers like a beacon atop seven hills as it spreads from the edges of the Atlantic to the mouth of the Tagus River. Funiculars ascend the cobblestone streets squeezed between historical buildings that wind up the knolls to turn the steep journey into a romantic adventure with panoramic views along Miradouro de Sao Pedro de Alcantara. The hilltop garden presents the whitewashed walls and red-tiled rooftops of the old neighborhood in the distance set beneath the golden walls of St. Jorge Castle crowning the summit. Busts of Greco-Roman heroes linger beneath the shade. Lisboetas sip wine together and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere at the heart of the city.
Your flight will land at Lisbon Portela Airport, and your private transfer will meet you and your partner upon arrival. Enjoy the scenic ride through the historical neighborhoods to reach your luxurious hotel within view of the cobblestone streets and whitewashed walls of the city center. Trams wander along electric lines that crisscross the lanes while a celebrated cafe stands between the Discoveries Monument and the Belem Tower for a view of the striking architecture to be enjoyed with fresh squeezed orange juice and a decadent slice of homemade cheesecake. The Discoveries Monument was erected in the 1960s to commemorate the 500th anniversary of Prince Henry the Navigator’s passing. The marble edifice depicts the three-sailed ship departing from the port with historical figures such as Vasco de Gama and Magellan, eager to explore the unknown.
