Today after breakfast you will be met and transferred to Lisbon, visiting en route yet another UNESCO world heritage site- the incredible city of Sintra- with its 19th century Romantic buildings, and the many Estates, Castles and Royal Retreats that surround it.
But the best is yet to come: spread across steep hillsides that overlook the Rio Tejo, Lisbon awaits to captivate our clients, as it has captivated millions of visitors during centuries. Windswept "vistas" reveal the city in all its beauty: Roman and Moorish ruins, white-domed cathedrals, grand plazas lined with sun-drenched cafes.
The real delight though, is discovering and delving into the narrow cobblestone lanes.
As yellow trams clatter through tree-lined streets, lisboêtas stroll through lamplit old quarters, much as they’ve done for centuries. Gossip is exchanged over fresh bread and wine in tiny patio restaurants while nostalgic fado singers perform in the background…
Finishing at the Bairro Alto Hotel where you will stay for four nights.
