Belem

Jump to last reply

I am trying to figure out how to squeeze as much as I can out of a very short trip to Lisbon.

I am attending an company awards weekend trip in early April. I unfortunately can't extend the trip (I wish I could) and much of it is pre-planned.

We arrive around 9am and we are staying at Pestana Palace. I know I have a meeting to attend in the late afternoon, with a group dinner that night at Pestana. But, I am wanting to get some fun in before the meeting.

So, I want to go to Belem...how much time do I need to do it justice? For argument's sake, let's say I have 3-4 hours to kill before the meeting---can we do it? Is Jeronimos Monastery part of this? I believe I saw that it can be crowded (??), are there any short cuts or passes that allow you to bypass lines, etc....again trying to go hard for the weekend and see as much as possible!!

We chose a gourmet food tour of LIsbon for our optional activity the second day. I know that the company has planned a tram ride to Alfama in the morning, lunch at the fish market and then the food tour. After that, there is leisure time but I don't yet know how much. Then a dinner in town.

Day 3 is planned for the group to go to Sintra, Cabo da Roca and lunch at a restaurant overlooking the water. Again leisure time following, but no exact times. A gala dinner is planned for the night and then we fly out late the next AM.

So, for the short leisure time, for those who know Lisbon and our hotel location, what ideas do you have for short amounts of afternoon leisure time? Find a great location and sip vinho verde? what shouldn't we miss if have time?
