Welcome to Lisbon, a vibrant, multicultural and exciting city that’s just waiting for you to explore it! Lounging across seven hills, Lisbon basks on the edge of one of the world’s biggest natural harbors, exuding a kind of lazy, majestic beauty. The city is a heady mix of medieval and modern, old world and new, where you are as likely to hear rhythmic Angolan beats as the mournful Fado, and dancing the Samba is part of the experience. On your Lisbon City Break, you'll savor a walking food tour through the winding streets of Alfama, the oldest neighborhood in Lisbon and Baixa to taste a wide range of Portugal’s street food while being given cultural and historical context along the way. From the international famous “pastel de nata” (custard tart) to “ginjinha” (sour cherry liqueur)in a chocolate cup you will be tasting everything the Portuguese living in Lisbon enjoy. For the historical buffs and nature lovers among you, Colares and Sintra will melt your heart! Ancient Quintas with vast green gardens and 18th century charm await you. And let's not forget sunset sails along the Tagus river, complete with a wine tasting to wind up your unforgettable visit!

  • Guided Walking Food Tour through Lisbon’s charming neighborhoods;
  • Visit to an iconic monument in Sintra, Quinta da Regaleira;
