Lisbon is overflowing with history, a wonderful collection of unique culture and art, all nestled between seaside villages and wineries. The city is built on a series of hills, most easily navigated by foot, but you’ll also want to take advantage of vintage trams along the way. Each hilltop offers a unique viewpoint, with views of the city streets and the river.
Our hotel will be in the city center, giving us easy access to many of the city’s famous sites. We will begin our Discovery Expedition with an introduction to navigating the city along with how to use the city’s trams and funiculars.
There is no detailed itinerary for the Travel Ninja 102 Discovery Expeditions, as you will create your own itinerary and decide how to spend your days. Ideas for excursions, interesting sites and places to eat will be provided prior to your departure. You can choose to plan out your days before your leave or decide as you go. There will be a group event or meal each day, these moments are optional, you can choose to participate or skip them – whatever suits your needs for the day. Below is a list of the group events that will be available each day.
The Travel Ninja 102 Discovery Expeditions also include 2, one-on-on sessions (45-minuites each) to help you plan your itinerary and your host will be available during the trip to help you navigate the city and to provide advice and guidance on planning your day.
Travel Ninja 102 is “travel with a safety-net”. Some of the planning will be done for you, such as the flight and lodging, along with ideas for excursions. But, like traveling alone, you will be able to create your own itinerary and explore the city on your own. The Travel Ninja 102 Lisbon Discovery Expedition will give you the confidence to explore – knowing that you have a host to call on for support and a small group of fellow explorers to connect with and share experiences at your own pace.
The program includes;
- Lisbon Discovery Expedition
- One-on-one Coaching sessions
Travel Ninja 102 – Discover Lisbon
Lisbon is known for its beautiful squares, quaint neighborhood streets ideal for wandering, and excellent cuisine. The city is easily navigated on foot – and four your tired feet you can hop on of the 40 vintage streetcars that make getting around even more fun. Being one of the oldest cities in Europe, there is plenty of history and architecture to soak up. We’ll also make a stop a Bertrand, the oldest bookstore in the world!
If you are looking for a sunny summer getaway, Libson is the place. Europe’s capital city, with an average of 2,799 hours of sunshine a year! Come hang out by the sea!
The first two days of our adventure will include an introduction to the city, its neighborhoods, as well as how to hop on a streetcar for a vintage ride through the streets. You can choose your own itinerary each day. You will have opportunities to visit the Baixa, in the center of the city and venture along to Alfama, a truly picturesque neighborhood with tiny cobblestones alleys and colorful street art. Each day will feature a hosted group meal to allow you to get to know the other travelers and to share stories. These events will also include opportunities to meet locals and learn more about the area and culture.
All of the Travel Ninja 102 Expeditions are women-only and limited to 12 participants. These kinds of trips often create amazing friendships, bonding during a journey of discovery and adventure – with like-minded souls.
