Lisbon – Arts and Culture

Program Overview

Lisbon is as much about heritage and historic sights, as it is about modern trends, art and culture. Experience the old, the new and everything in between! See the city of Lisbon in the most exclusive way. One experience at a time, guests will travel back and forth through the centuries to embrace Portuguese culture and heritage.

A highlight will be the final night as guests travel back in time to the 18th century with a once-in-a-lifetime themed dinner at Fronteira Palace – one of the most beautiful seventeenth century palaces in Lisbon and home to the largest collection of 17th century “azulejos” (Portuguese tiles). It is also the actual home of the descendants of Dom Joao de Mascarenhas, the first Marquis of Fronteira. This evening includes a classic car transfer, a welcome to the Palace by a Marquis family member and a wonderful dinner with fully costumed waiters and entertainment by a string quartet.
