I am in love with romatic Lisbon, unfortunately, this time I spent only one night, because the object of my desire was Sal on Cabo Verde.
The Tejo, Lisbon’s river, was bathed in a colorful sea of colors. The “Cais the Colunas” has turned into a promenade with many beautiful cafes.
From here Marques de Pombal rebuilt the city in 1755 after the strong earthquake. For me a fascinating city, there is a touch of nostalgia.
The city is gracefully framed by Baroque buildings and arcades is changing his face. It has been declared as a tax paradise and the singer Madonna has moved her residence to the outskirts of Lisbon.
Wow! I checked in at the fine DoubleTree by Hilton Lisbon – Fontana Park Hotel Lisbon.
A modern, luxurious and cosmopolitan hotel in the city center of. It is delivering heaven on earth to romantic couples but it is also a business hotel.
A beautiful place with nice rooms, discrete luxury welcomes you here in the heart of the city.
For me the perfect choice for a night in Lisbon. It offers a perfect entry into the city and comfortable rooms. The entire hotel is well furnished and creates a warm, cozy atmosphere.
I live in a loft in Berlin, that’s why I was enthusiastic about the lofty, harmonious form and color concept.
The unique garden with bamboo trees and waterfall will soothe your senses with the relaxing sounds of nature. Opposite is a large market hall with regional products and culinary delights from the old colonies of Portugal. Of course, the theme of wine plays everywhere in Portugal a important role.
Together with great wines you can enjoy in the two hotel restaurants asian food and regional delicacies in the Saldanha Mar.
The kitchen succeeds perfectly to combine fine cuisine with traditional dishes. Be sure to try the grilled tuna with spinach and salad. Fantastic.
In addition a nice Alentejo white wine, the perfect pairing.
Things to do in Lisbon: The view from the platform Elevador de Santa Justa on the Rossio square. Since 1901, this freestanding cast iron lift has connected the lower city of Baixa with the upper city of Chiado and the Bairro Alto.
Lisbon is always fun, a cosmopolitan mix with music, art and exhibitions.
I will come back soon.
The stay was supported by Hilton Hotels & Resorts.
