Enjoy the History
Lisbon is a city with great diversity and on each corner, there is a new story to unveil. Each district has its own authentic characteristics. Challenge your team to discover more about Lisbon’s history and set to explore the historical neighbourhoods of Chiado, Baixa, Mouraria, Alfama and Graça. You will climb through narrow roads, set to see medieval architecture, and arrive to the castle, where you will get to know about all the historical influences that make Lisbon such a unique and diverse place. If you are not willing to do all the walking, take the emblematic 28 tram.
Discover Fado and its Cultural Heritage
If you are in Lisbon, you can not miss the traditional singing that is considered Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO as one type of art that is a symbol of Portuguese culture. There are a lot of places in the city where you can go and enjoy the music. Invite your team for a different cultural experience and go for a musical evening in a very authentic setting.
Indulge in the Delicious Gastronomy
From the popular traditional dishes such as grilled sardines, to world-class restaurants, in Lisbon the gastronomy will not disappoint. Gather your team for a gastronomic tour to discover some of the most typical “tascas” (little restaurants with Portuguese tapas) and get a flavour of the most authentic national dishes. Or if you are looking for an exclusive experience, invite your team for a degustation activity in one of the 5 vibrant and unique Michelin star restaurants in the city.
Appreciate the Views of the Hills
Lisbon is known as the city of the seven hills. Because of the various high places that evoke the beauty of the place. There is a network of trams that will take you to these hills in the city, from which you will have wonderful panoramic views of the city. Invite your team to enjoy the sunset in one of these viewpoints or go and discover some of the greatest rooftop venues in the city and invite your team for a sunset cocktail with a view.
A luxury Experience in Lisbon
Lisbon is growing in luxury trends throughout the city. From world-class brands, 5-star hotels or luxury venues offering exclusive experiences in the city.
