Lisbon: Favorite Areas
Lisbon 5 star hotels offer visitors the chance to experience this uniquely traditional and charming European capital. Shopping, dining and sightseeing has never been better.
History at the heart of Lisbon
Many of Lisbon’s 5 star hotels are located right in its centre, close to the grand squares that form the commercial cores of this compact but vibrant destination. Near the city centre you’ll find the 12th century Sé Cathedral, the Carmo Convent and São Jorge Castle. The latter has magnificent views over the city.
Chic shopping and gastronomy
Lisbon is an excellent place for luxury shopping, with an impressive offering of top brands. The Avenida da Liberdade is right up from Rossio Square and has many of the city’s best designer stores. You can also travel short distances to the large shopping centres dotted around the city, including Centro Colombo and Centro Vasco da Gama. The latter is housed in the Park of Nations, a thoroughly modern quarter that was developed for the Expo ’98 World’s Fair.
Day trips out of the city
While staying at a 5 star hotel in Lisbon, you can also enjoy easy access by train or taxi to the many great destinations just outside of the city. The numerous beaches dotting the coast include the popular Estoril, with its famous casino, and Cascais, the locals’ favourite sunbathing spot. The town of Sintra, with its fairytale castles and forest scenery, is also a short distance away.
