Lisbon's boutique gem

Now fully open is the AlmaLusa Lisbon, an enchanting 28-room boutique property.

It is set in the historic Praça do Município, opposite the city hall, an ideal position for visitors wanting to embrace the city’s past within a short walk of Alfama and the atmosphere-laden fado bars.  The rail station for Cascai and Estoria, is minutes away, as is the Praça do Comércio. You can sit inside or out at the Delfina restaurant.

What makes the hotel very unusual is a combined marketing exercise with the archaeologist tour guides Time Travellers. 

(Prices are from and per person).

Lisbon on wheels: Travelling the hills in style! A 3hr tour that combines walking and 2hr by Segway (€76). 

The No 28 tram and the Castle:  Old Lisbon, top to bottom – 2½-3hr walking tour combined with a tram ride and visit to the Castle of Saint George (€30).
Lisbon and the Tagus: The Phoenicians, Romans, Vikings and English Crusaders all left their mark on Lisbon. This waterborne tour explores all their stories and retraces the journeys that the explorers took in the 1500s, setting sail from Belém to the Castle Hill (€95).
