The alluring capital of Lisbon is one of Europe’s most charming cities. The city is charming and inviting with its many old world cafés, “Fado” bars, narrow cobblestoned streets and medieval quarters. We can organize a stay in a gorgeous 18th century converted palace, and you can spend a few days soaking up the atmosphere, sightseeing, and dining at ultra charming restaurants like A Travessa and Tavares Rico. We highly suggest including a visit to Sintra, a verdant and graceful city with stunning palaces and gardens, including the one and only “Palacio da Pena”. This is the most extraordinary palace in Portugal, built in the 1840’s for Queen Maria II by her husband, emulating the castles of Ludwig of Bavaria (Disney’s inspiration).
Other highlights of Portugal that we can feature on your special occasion trip include learning how to prepare an elegant Portuguese lunch with your own private chef in Cascais; visiting picturesque Óbidos (known as the “wedding” village); dining at the sublime Yeatman; tasting port at the ancient lodges of Vila Nova; and sailing down the Douro River on a vintage Rabelo boat.
