3 DAYS IN LISBON
The best of Lisbon by Saudade team
its colours, its ocean smell, its sun and its winding alleys.
Lisbon has our hearts.
Let us guide you for 3 enchanted days in the city of 7 hills.
WHERE TO STAY
Memmo Alfama Hotel
Hidden in the Alfama, a little jewel with a breathtaking view on the maze of roofs and the sea. It's simple (well, almost… ;-) we love everything about it, from the red pool to the vinyl frame gallery, so Saudade!
The Lisboans Apartments
Well located, well decorated and run by lovely people, The Lisboans apartments are our go-to-place for a family of 4 and + ;)
DAY 1: WALK BY THE RIVER
Associação Regional de Vela do Centro
Before diving into a cultural walk in Belém, nothing better than seating by the river and feeling the breeze coming from the Atlantic ocean. To warm your mind and belly (of course), have an excellent lunch of fresh fish and seafood.
Pastéis de Belém
The best place to eat pastéis de nata! The tasty pasteis de Belém are delicious when sprinkled with cinnamon powder and sugar powder and go very well with a cup of coffee.
Colecção Berardo at CCB
If you are a big fan of modern and contemporary art, you will want to embark on this journey through one of the most exciting centuries of artistic creation. You will feel quite inspired after this immersive artistic experience, ranging from Pablo Picasso to Andy Warhol.
You can see just by looking at its incredible architecture that this is a space for debate, discovery, critical thinking and international dialogue. The lines, the river and the bridge, everything here makes you want to stay for a while just looking around...
At the end of the day you just want to watch an incredible sunset. Ponto Final has to be your final destination, good portuguese food combined with an amazing view, just the perfect combo.
To get there, jump on a boat at Cais do Sodre, towards Cacilhas. From there, after a 15 minutes walk along the Tagus, you'll be able enjoy a fresh dinner.
Castelo de São Jorge
Be crowned with the best view of the city as you walk on the castle walls.
Trams have been rolling down Lisbon's slopes since 1901. The 28 will take you to the smallest streets and the nicest point of views. It can be a bit crowded, a bit slow, but it’s a Lisbon experience that you will not regret.
Our favourite stops:
Portas do Sol for its unobstructed view of the Alfama. It's a great starting point to get lost in the back streets of Lisbon's oldest neighbourhood.
Graca: you arrived among the locals meeting for a chat over coffee. Go to the Miraduro da Senhora do Monte for the stunning view, a fresh lemonade and live music.
A cosy terrace with Moroccan vibes and cozy food for you to enjoy a nice meal. It is located in the trendy Principe Real that has nice places to discover in every corner.
The perfect portuguese combination, from the land & sea. If you are looking for a completely natural and organic gastronomic experience, Prado is the right choice.
Fado at Tasca do Chico
You can't miss a traditional portuguese night. Fado, portuguese food and the classic portuguese guitar.
DAY 3: BY THE OCEAN
SURF with Mário
Feel brave enough to surf the portuguese waves? Way To Surf can teach you how to do it in style!
Good pizza, nice environment, great view and a fresh cocktail after a good day at the beach.
Do as a typical portuguese would do and enjoy a coffee, a beer or even a sangria while listening to the sound of the waves.
Casa do Infante
The place to go if you want to discover projects that value Portuguese craftsmanship. Every single object selected by Paz and her team is a feast for the eyes.
Discover an entire building decorated by Santo Infante in Rua Santos-O-Velho 6-10 (until January 8th).
Or the permanent Santo Infante store, in Avenida Infante Santo, 23B (Alcântara).
Palavra de Viajante
After a heart warming breakfast at Café São, discover this beautiful library. The owners and their selection are both so nice.
Alexandre imagines every piece of clothing bearing in mind that a garment made with respect for the planet and humans can make a difference.
LAST BUT NOT LEAST...
Lx Factory.. and Saudade's offices
You did not think you would come to Lisbon without coming to see us, no ?
Find us on the last floor of the main building, Espaço 4.01B, from Monday to Friday, 10am to 6pm. We can’t wait to meet you ;)
