In Lisbon’s historic center we will take you to the seductive appeal of the Chiado, a neighborhood evoking the bourgeois tastes of 19th century Lisbon. You will visit Lisbon’s Cathedral, the only building that survived the 1755 earthquake. Afterward, we go up one of Lisbon’s seven hills, in the Alfama neighborhood, you will find São Jorge Castel, where you will have the opportunity to enjoy one of the most beautiful views of the city. Discover the renovated “Baixa Pombalina”, where you will find the ultra-luxurious Avenida da Liberdade (where shoppers will find Louis Vuitton, Prada, Gucci, Onofre. Armani, Zadig & Voltaire and Tod’s) the Rua Augusta Arch, the Santa Justa Lift and Comércio Square. After returning to your Hotel a stop at the stylish district of Chiado home to Café a Brasileira and sip on bica — Portuguese espresso — to admire the stunning brass-and-wood Art Nouveau interior, preferred haunt of intellectuals and artists (including Fernando Pessoa and Almada Negreiros) since the early nineteenth century.
Crossing the street, you will find O Trevo. This place is a pilgrimage for Anthony Bourdain fans and tops every list of the top “bifanas” in Lisbon. Anthony Bourdain was in Lisbon for No Reservations and he went to this bar. The sliced Portuguese roll is fresh, soft, and melt in your mouth. A spicy thin slice of pork between bread, each and every bite is accompanied by an involuntary “mmmmm!”.
Lunch will be served at JNcQUOI Avenida. An upscale restaurant, a bar, a gourmet deli, a wine cellar and a luxury men’s fashion store with a made-to-measure service and a portfolio of the most prestigious names in fashion and accessories. The Restaurant creates a gastronomy tribute to the best products and producers, with a local concept that takes over the world food into an amazing taste experience.

Cruise along the waters of the Tagus River, passing the atmospheric neighborhoods of the city, enjoying Lisbon´s buildings and monuments from the “right” perspective including Belém district, a charming district to the west of Lisbon, and is the setting for many of the city’s most iconic tourist attractions. Originally, Belem was the location of Lisbon’s shipyards and docks, and from here departed the 15th-century voyages that discovered the sea routes to India, East Africa, and Brazil. This rich seafaring heritage is commemorated in Belem, along with extravagant buildings that were funded by the vast wealth that flowed into Portugal from the newly discovered colonies. Belem is one of the finest areas of Lisbon and offers outstanding tourist attractions like Torre de Belem, Lisbon’s most famous and photographed monument, Mosteiro dos Jeronimos the greatest example of the Manueline style of architecture, the imposing Padrão dos Descobrimentos, a monument to the 15th-century Portuguese explorers, and its panoramic rooftop viewpoint and the new National Coach Museum building, inaugurated in May 2015.
Dinner will be served at Eleven Restaurant. The restaurant stands out since the beginning by the building’s architecture (architectonic project by Arch. João Correia) who assumes himself as a modernist and minimalist in the exterior decorative forms and elements. It is a building that uses natural materials (stone, wood) connecting to the exterior, through the enormous windows turned to Tejo. Eleven Restaurant has obtained its first Michelin star in November 2005. The gastronomical concept of Eleven Restaurant is profoundly rooted in the knowledge of its chef, Joachim Koerper. This Chef has a unique capacity to ally his knowledge to the places he works in, in order to adapt his creativity and recreate traditional courses and discovering new ways to utilize the ingredients available in our squares and markets.
