In choosing your international airline for business travel or summer getaway in Europe or Africa we recommend award wining TAP Air Portugal, and that you make time to discover, enjoy and savor beautiful Portugal. The Tap Air Portugal Stopover Program allows for up to five days in Portugal with no additional airfare. From dynamic Lisbon to the nearby Sintra Mountains and coastal Cascais a wealth of attractions await those with a quest to discover this beautiful, rich and historic land. The country is a travelers dream destination. UNESCO World Heritage sites, ancient villages, grand gardens, fanciful castles, monumental architecture, seaside villages and beach resorts are all near Lisbon and Porto. Visitors can create rewarding itineraries during their time in Portugal and enjoy exclusive program extras. The Stopover Program’s many partners are able to offer a range of incentives for travelers including hotel discounts and complimentary Portuguese wine in restaurants and museum admissions.
If Portugal is your final destination or if are continuing on to destinations in Europe and beyond consider traveling in full luxury and book your flight in Executive Class. The spacious front of cabin in Tap Air Portugal’s A330 and A340 planes are outfitted with brand-new fully reclining flat-bed seats. Within your cocoon of luxury there is ample small storage space to stow your bedding, shoes and personal items.
The state of the art entertainment console is engaging and the tray table is large enough for a full sized laptop and dining without constriction. In Executive Class the carefully selected wine selection compliments the Portuguese inspired dining offerings. From the first course forward I enjoyed Portuguese wines with each course, ending with a deep and rich Port served with a selection of hard and soft Portuguese cheeses. The welcoming service, while never rushed, was efficiently paced to allow for a quiet night flight to Lisbon and extended during my wine-tasting, movie watching day flight return.
To be honest my wine tasting started in Tap Air Portugal’s Premium Lounge at the Lisbon airport. The appealing array of Portuguese small-bites offered in this light filled, colorfully futuristic lounge could only be enjoyed with the flavors of local wines. While in the Premium Lounge, the trays of pastel de nata, the country’s famed egg tarts, made me nostalgic for my day of discovery, hill climbing and sightseeing in Lisbon, and my few days in the quaint and colorful seaside town of Cascais.
The Memmo Principle Real hotel, tucked into a Lisbon hillside and overlooking the city, is an exceptional five-star boutique hotel. Centered in charmingly trendy neighborhood this beacon of style attracts locals and guests to its cocktail bar and Café Principe Real Cafe where Chef Vasco Lello incorporates the influences of Portuguese cuisine throughout the world in his menus. The rooms and suites are crisp, precise and handsome, and service is top-notch. The Memmo Principle Real is designed and managed with a level of sophistication befitting the cosmopolitan and lively city of Lisbon.
I found more sophisticated, refined and energetic dining at the Farol Hotel in Cascais where the restaurants and cocktail lounge attracts connoisseurs of fine food, spirits and joviality. Perched on the rock lined Atlantic Coastline the Farol Hotel is an enclave of high style and graciously hip hospitality. See more on the UnnamedProject.com Farol Hotel Story.
While TAP Air Portugal can take you to great destinations in Europe, Africa, Brazil and beyond taking advantage of the airlines Stopover Program is a value added bonus that can provide an introduction to the many and diverse attraction that make Portugal so special. Tap Air Portugal.
