Lisbon by sea
In this historic enclave of sailors and explorers, the eternal romance between the city and ocean has lasted for centuries. That’s why it’s best to discover Lisbon by way of its impressive river. We suggest you do so by sailboat, right at sunset, when the golden hues of the afternoon lend the water a special glow.

The Palacio Ribeiro da Cunha, constructed in the 19th century, is a gathering spot for the most unique and exclusive Portuguese fashion and design brands. Located in the city’s chicest neighborhood, Principe Real, it’s full of hidden corners where surprises abound.
Have dinner at the hottest restaurant
There are two trending topics in this Portuguese metropolis’ culinary scene. The first is Jorge Fernandes, a chef who was trained in the best French and Portuguese kitchens and earned third place in the 29th edition of the Chefe Cozinheiro do Ano (Chef of the Year) competition.

The result is an essential and fascinating eating experience.

A journey to the unknown at Champalimaud
It may not be a museum or a UFO… but it does have something to do with science fiction. The Fundación Champalimaud is a scientific research center in a futuristic building, with various spaces open for exclusive visits. Not only will visitors gape at Charles Correa’s incredible architecture; they’ll also push the limits of their knowledge and imagination. This place expresses the essence of the city: traditional yet cutting edge, surprising yet classical. These dichotomies are what make Lisbon’s luxury truly inspiring.
