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!
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.
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.
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.
DAY 3: BY THE OCEAN
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).
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 ;)
