The Lisbon area is the perfect destination location for newlyweds who wish to enjoy some unique experiences, luxury hotels and restaurants and not forgetting, beautiful beaches. Classic architecture, tiled patterned pavements, bustling cafes and tree lined squares make up the area of Lisbon’s downtown Baixa district; the city’s beating heart. Begin your explorations here, where you’ll find the No 28 Tram – the famous, yellow wooden tram will take you to some of the best corners of Lisbon and is among the most authentic way to soak up the city’s sights and sounds. Hop on board (or follow its tracks on foot) for a self-guided tour through charming, photogenic neighbourhoods. Explore the romantic Alfama district; Lisbon’s oldest area, and enjoy the maze of historic buildings and tiny plazas, before slipping inside a local bar or restaurant for dinner and a fado show. Fado is a soulful translation of the Portuguese spirit, both beautiful and melancholic music, and its sounds resonates throughout the district. Book our Lisbon, 6 Day Luxury Break or create a Portugal honeymoon with us.
Throughout history some of Portugal’s greatest authors and artists have sought inspiration in fairytale Sintra. With castles and peaks beyond your imagination it’s the most romantic destination in Portugal. Visit the delightful and colourful Pena Palace, stunning Monserrate Palace or ancient Castelo dos Mouros, then wander the pretty Sintra village to take in some lunch. Once you’ve soaked in the charms of Sintra, head to the coast. Soak in the vistas from Cabo do Roca (Europe’s most westerly viewpoint), or spend time sunning yourself on the uncrowded beaches such as Praia da Adraga, right on the Atlantic Ocean. Taste the DOC Colares wines at a local family-owned winery and stop at coastal cliff-side village, Azenhas do Mar for more stunning views. Enjoy our Sintra, Luxury 1 Day Tour as part of your bespoke, luxury Portugal honeymoon.
