You can opt for day trips, which generally last between one and two hours, or private trips, ideal for special occasions such as birthdays, bachelor parties or a more intimate moment. Among the boats we have 2 catamarans and the historic Evora Boat, providing a personalized and memorable experience.

2. Analog photography in the restaurant Picanha 47

For a unique and interactive dining experience, visit Picanha 47. This restaurant not only offers delicious picanha but also a retro analog photography experience. Their mission is for you to forget about your cell phone and jump into this unique vibe. When you sit down at the table, you’ll be given an analog camera to capture the best shots with your friends and family. At the end of the week, you’ll be able to download your photos on our website, simply by “developing” them. It’s a fun and nostalgic way to record your gastronomic experience in Lisbon.

3. Explore Alfama

Alfama is Lisbon’s oldest neighborhood and a real hidden gem. With its labyrinthine streets full of colorful tiles and historic buildings, walking through Alfama is like stepping back in time. Here, you can visit the Lisbon Cathedral, São Jorge Castle and enjoy incredible views from the Santa Luzia and Portas do Sol viewpoints. In addition, the neighborhood is famous for its fado houses, where you can listen to melancholy traditional Portuguese music while sipping a glass of wine.

4. Tasting Flavors at Time Out Market

For food lovers, Time Out Market is a paradise. Located in the Mercado da Ribeira, this space brings together some of Lisbon’s best chefs and restaurants under one roof. Here, you can sample a wide variety of dishes, from traditional Portuguese fare to international cuisine. It’s the perfect place to try snacks such as pastéis de bacalhau, presunto pata negra and, of course, the famous pastel de nata. In addition to the food, the market offers cultural and musical events, making the experience even more complete.

5. Going up the Santa Justa Elevator

The Santa Justa Elevator is one of Lisbon’s architectural icons. Built at the beginning of the 20th century, this neo-Gothic elevator connects Baixa with the Chiado district, providing a unique and convenient way to overcome the height difference between the two areas.
