The Portuguese capital has a fascinating history – as the oldest city in Western Europe, Lisbon is a big enough player on the world stage to be an exciting and vibrant place to be, but small enough to be a friendly and welcoming destination for a short trip.

Discover the city’s museums and monuments. From historic places to the most recent museum and architecture projects, there is much to see in a city which is constantly reinventing itself. On an optional day trip to the beautiful town Sintra you can also get a good taste of the fascinating surroundings of Lisbon.

Strategically located only a few minutes away from the historical centre and from Lisbon’s International Airport, the VIP Executive Zurique Hotel has 252 rooms that represent the essence of convenience and comfort.

This 3 star Hotel has leisure areas, like a cosy and comfortable bar, an exterior swimming pool (seasonal from May to September) and also the “O Infante” restaurant, with natural light and capacity for 120 people, where typical Portuguese and international meals are served.

You will receive a road-map with daily suggestions but we recommend to take a look at our optional tours to fill your days with more guided discoveries.

Morning suggestion: In the morning a walking tour at “Baixa” of Lisboa, the downtown. You will start feeling the city, its people, ambiance, smell, colours, light, it’s a “say hello Lisboa”.

During the afternoon, our tuk-tuk picks you up at the hotel and will take you on a 3 hour journey through time and history of Lisbon but also today’s life. You will visit all the most important and beautiful old and typical neighbourhoods with excellent views of the city (great spots to take pictures to remember later). Visit the Jeronimos Monastery, the Pastéis de Belém, the route by the River Tejo. All these monuments represent the “golden age” of the Portuguese Discoveries, which began in the XV century.

Continue the visit through the main squares of Lisbon, ending at the Avenida de Liberdade for dinner at the restaurant Rubro Avenida.

The restaurant Rubro Avenida is situated on one of the most famous avenues in Lisbon, Av. Da Liberdade. It’s a modern and contemporary space to serve the famous tapas.
