Part Of Our Premier Collection

5* Hotel. Half Board. 5 Nights
Perched on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, Lisbon is one of those rare western capitals that face the sea, and where water defines the city. Beautiful avenues open into wide squares, and bleached white limestone buildings line intimate alleyways brimming with charming restaurants, flowers and shops.
There is so much to see and do in Lisbon that we have opted to play bridge every evening only, leaving you time during the day to enjoy this exceptional city. Take a tram ride to Belem where in the 6th century the Belem Tower guarded the entrance to Lisbon, and the museum focuses on the city’s rich maritime past. A visit to Alfama, Lisbon’s oldest neighbourhood with is narrow streets and Castelo de Sao Jorgo is not to be missed.
For those of you wishing to travel further afield we offer an optional excursion to Sintra, beautifully set between castles and mountains, and once the summer refuge for the Lisbon nobility.
