HIGHLIGHS

  • The great city of Lisbon, easily one of the prettiest capital cities of Europe
  • Discovery of the Natural parks of Sintra and Arrábida
  • Combination of coastline and city landscapes
  • Walking around Lisbon

The old and the new, the past and the present, the huch huch of a cosmopolitan city and the old quiet re-invented neighbourhoods side by side. Every stone around you tells the great story of an even greater Lisboa with its relation with the sea, the palaces, the revolution, and the big earthquake.

Indulge yourself in a Pastel de Nata – you will never forget them – and a typical Ginginha. Then we will go walking around Lisbon. Get ready to explore the uniqueness of the natural parks of Sintra and Arrábida. Each of them with its own wonders, totally different and both so close to the city!
