Itinerary (subject to change)
We depart from Frankfurt International Airport, Terminal 1. After check in (please check in minimum 2 hours prior to departure), we meet at the gate of our flight. We fly with TAP Portugal at 1:25 pm to Lisbon. Arriving in Lisbon (3:35 pm), our shuttle bus is already waiting for us to take us to our centrally located 4 star hotel. We are staying in a modern hotel that offers quality services, with spacious and exterior rooms and located in one of the most commercial areas of Lisbon, next to Eduardo VII Park and Liberdade Avenue. After checking in at the hotel, you have the rest of the day at leisure. Your guide will provide you with suggestions for dinner.
After buffet breakfast in the hotel we meet our local guide and start with our sightseeing tour. From the Castle of Sao Jorge, the entire panorama of Lisbon unfolds before your eyes. In the Belem district you can visit the magnificent Jeronimos Monastery (entrance fee included) and the Seafarers' Monument, the Torre de Belem brings back memories of the great explorers and the old town of Alfama simply enchants with its small streets and the Romanesque cathedral. As the locals greet you, try a glass of ginja, a strong but very sweet liqueur made from pickled morello cherries. The seven hills that Lisbon is situated on make it almost impossible to reach everything on foot. An excellent way to see the city is on the historic Tram 28. It is THE experience in Lisbon. The original wagons from the 1930s are made entirely of wood on the inside. The ride takes you up and down the hills of Lisbon in steep curves, past Lisbon's main sights and through narrow streets. The evening is free for own activities. Lisbon is considered the center of fado. It is to Portugal what flamenco is to Spain. A music, a tradition, a way of life. Anyone who approaches it learns a lot about the city and the people in it. Fado sure, that's some fiery guitarros and heartbreaking vocals. In the meantime, he has been officially ennobled: since 2011, fado has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Don't miss out on this special musical experience in a typical Fado bar!
After buffet breakfast in the hotel we start with a full day excursion. Today you will get to know the stretches of the coast west of Lisbon. In Sintra you will first see the Royal Palace (entrance fee included). It's peculiarities are the two large conical chimneys and the twin windows with the horseshoe arches, reminiscent of Moorish architecture. Afterwards you will visit Cabo da Roca, the westernmost point of mainland Europe. The seaside resort of Estoril is another stop on the excursion. In Estoril there are remains of Roman villas from around the time of the birth of Christ. In the evening we drive back to your hotel in Lisbon. Your guide will make suggestions for evening activities
