More Details

Your Lisbon luxury escape is best experienced from Valverde Lisboa Hotel & Garden. Located in the Avenida da Liberdade, in the most aristocratic of Lisbon’s neighborhoods, Valverde Hotel—a Relais & Chateaux gem—reminds one of London and New York’s town houses, with its classic and elegant style, contemporary furniture, works of art, and antiques. 

The rest of the day is yours to spend at your leisure recovering from your international flight.

Your introduction to the city comes via a private guided walking tour, with new experiences unfolding in each new neighborhood. Taste local chocolate and coffee, enjoy a delicious lunch, sample a cup of sherry liqueur, all the while with the charm of a medieval city and the pulse of a modern hub ever present.

This evening, become an active participant in your dinner in the Graça area, shopping with a local chef before enjoying a private cooking lesson in the chef's home.

Your Lisbon luxury escape explores they city's artistic side next, with a private guided visit to the workshops and museum of the Decorative Art Foundation.

Later, Alfama's ancient quarter shelters a number of galleries, all of which are yours to explore with private access.

On the last day of your Lisbon luxury escape, explore the port city history from the water on a sailing excursion. Your private vessel departs from Belém - the same place where Portuguese sailors disembarked for ancient points unknown - and takes a scenic watery route to Cascais.

Lunch in this small village is a celebration of its maritime history and the bounty of the sea. Visit Pena Palace at Sintra before sailing back to Lisbon in time for dinner.

Check out of the hotel this morning. Your private driver will transfer to Lisbon’s airport for your departing flight onward.

This exquisite taste of Portuguese splendor is the perfect quick getaway, leaving you ready to explore further on future visits.
