The capital of Portugal is a perfect destination for a summer break. A city to explore, where you’ll be enchanted by its narrow streets and friendly locals. The culture, gastronomy and wide range of activities make for a perfect holiday.
And if you visit Lisbon, the best plan is to stay right in the centre, to take advantage of all tourist options on offer. The hotel Vincci Baixa 4* Lisboa is right in the centre, on Rua de Comercio. Surrounded by some of the best restaurants it gives you the opportunity to try the local cuisine, including fish and shellfish, all washed down by fine wine. In Lisbon simply eating and drinking in the company of friends is a true pleasure. And for dessert, let your taste buds enjoy a famous Pastel de Belém, an egg tart pastry, a delicious local speciality.

The streets of Lisbon are impregnated with a bohemian air, heightened by the coloured façades of the houses and the sounds of fado in the air. A viola and a Portuguese guitar in harmony caress the ear as you stroll along, giving you goose bumps: the melancholic sound of nostalgia is like magic on the breeze.The location of the Vincci Baixa 4* Lisboa is perfect if you want to sample fado, because right by the hotel you’ll find many street musicians and artists showing off their craft.
After relaxing in one of the modern rooms of our hotel, Lisbon invites you out to discover all its charming secrets. You can start in La Baixa neighbourhood, visiting the Plaza de los Restauradores. From there runs the Avenida de Liberdade, the most important thoroughfare in the city, which ends at the Plaza del Marqués de Pombal. Enjoy the stunning architecture of the Teatro Nacional in the Plaza del Rossio, before heading to Plaza de Figueira to see the curious houses there for yourself. Finally, close to the hotel Vincci Baixa 4* Lisboa is the Plaza del Comercio, the most important in the city, and which for decades was the gateway for maritime commerce.
Having spent a day discovering the city centre, you deserve a moment to relax and the Vincci Baixa 4* Lisboa is the perfect place. Head to it’s Bar and Lounge, where you can enjoy a coffee, soft drink or something stronger in perfect tranquillity.
Lisbon’s traditional and renowned trams are a great way to get about the city, so hop on board to enjoy not-to-be-missed places like the Castle of Sao Jorge, with incredible views over the River Tagus, and the neighbourhoods of La Mouraria and La Alfama at its feet, the latter an old fisherman’s haunt.
You should also visit the Chiado area, the famous ‘Montmartre’ of Lisbon, which has many cafeterias, bars and restaurants, alongside antique shops, as well as the most spectacular neighbourhood of Belem. We say the most spectacular because here you’ll find two of the city’s gems: the Jeronimos Monastery and the Belém Tower. There is also the famous 25 April bridge, yet another of the city’s must-see landmarks.
The hotel Vincci Baixa 4* Lisboa takes on the friendly atmosphere of the city and has an incredible location, with shops and out-door cafes on its doorstep, where you can enjoy a refreshing beer and unwind this summer.
