Lisbon, Portugal

With its century-old tram system and dusky pink evening hues, Lisbon is a monumental city blessed with a feeling of measured serenity. But underneath the brightly tiled exteriors of its traditional azulejos façade is a city bursting with the ideas and initiative of a forward-looking generation. Colorful and charming, undulating and eclectic, Lisbon is a collection of bairros (districts) spread across seven hills. Almafa and Castle, the city’s oldest quarters, meld rustic charm with a daily life unchanged in centuries, and Moorish and Medieval origins are still evident at every turn: little houses, cobbled narrow streets and winding alleys combine to create an atmosphere of cozy familiarity. The Portuguese have anything but strict sense of time, and you will understand why during your exploration of Chiado and Bairro Alto, two energetic districts where shops new and old, al fresco cafés, bookstores and nightspots expose the city at its fashionable best.

Let us not forget about Portugal’s beautiful coast and waterways. Enjoy a picnic lunch while sailing along the historic north shore of Lisbon’s Tagus River as you sit back and enjoy the historic shoreline’s sites. Learn to ride waves on Portugal’s “Dream Coast,” known internationally as a prime destination for surfers of all abilities. Experts will teach you everything from where to mount your board to how to conquer difficult waves. Then tantalize the taste buds by sampling Lisbon’s culinary delights. After tasting Belém’s custard tarts (a local specialty), make your way to A Ginjinha, a bar dating to the 1840s. Try the traditional Portuguese liqueur Ginjinha, made from a cherry-like ginja berry.

The Hotel

Topping one of Lisbon's seven hills, Four Seasons Hotel Ritz Lisbon is considered one of the city's finest hotels. You will soon see why as you take in its vast charms: any of the 282 spacious and elegantly appointed bedrooms (nearly all equipped with private balconies), views of Eduardo VII Park and St. George's Moorish Castle, impeccable personal service, full-service spa and gourmet Varanda Restaurant. The spa is awash in Buddhist-inspired music, Zen marble designs, Italian poolside lounges and all sorts of lavish treatments, from eucalyptus-infused steams to lime foot rituals. Cap off a perfect day at Varanda as you dine on exquisite seafood specialties and enjoy the view of the park. Varanda is acclaimed as the city's most sophisticated restaurant for business lunches or more intimate diners.

There is also an outdoor running track on the hotel’s rooftop, so guests can exercise while enjoying the spectacular views of St. George’s Moorish Castle, Old Town and the River Tagus. The Concierge at Four Seasons Hotel Ritz Lisbon is always at your fingertips, ready to share recommendations for the best things to do and see in Lisbon, from sampling traditional Portuguese cuisine to spending a day exploring a coastal village.
