Charming trams trundling along cobbled streets, a (nearly) eternal summer and all the egg tarts you can shake a selfie stick at; Lisbon has everything you need for a weekend getaway to remember.
There’s so much to see and do; delve into Portugal’s cultural background in historic Belém, graze on the city’s best bites at the Time Out Food Market or simply soak up the views from the many rooftop bars (you’ll find plenty around Bairro Alto).
Located close to the centre of town and all the major attractions, the Four Seaosns Hotel Ritz Lisbon is the perfect pad from which to explore the city.
Of the 282 guest rooms and luxury suites at Four Seasons Hotel Ritz Lisbon, 273 have private terraces overlooking the Hotel’s gardens and Eduardo VII Park.
Most also overlook St. George’s Castle, the Old Town, the Tagus River and the 25th of April Bridge, the prototype for San Francisco’s iconic Golden Gate Bridge.
Interiors in the public spaces of the hotel are tastefully decorated with 18th Century replica furnishings and contemporary Portuguese art, creating an air of elegant sophistication.
The Ritz Bar has Portuguese artist Pedro Leitao to thank for its cosy, artistic vibe and inspired additions, like his piano – autographed by world-famous artists – and a large wine-inspired tapestry.
With a huge wine and port list and outdoor terrace, the bar is an ideal spot for drinks before dinner and dancing in the city.
With a huge wine cellar, fresh seafood and sun-lit terrace overlooking the Park, Varanda is one of the hotel’s greatest highlights.
At the Ritz Bar sip rare port or take afternoon tea at Almada Negreiros Lounge in sumptuous comfort.
