The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Spend Less in Lisbon

Known for unbeatable weather and retro chic, seductive Lisbon is also Western Europe’s cheapest capital.


1. Where to Stay

Get a bargain at York House.  

Find salvation at bargain prices at the York House (from $119), just minutes away from the Museum of Ancient Art. The 32-room former convent is outfitted for the lay visitor with plush velvet sofas.

Loiter on your balcony or gaze out the floor-to-ceiling windows at Fontana Park (from $135) before strolling over to see 6,000 pieces of ancient and international art at the nearby Museu Calouste Gulbenkian.

Hit the snooze button at the Heritage Av. Liberdade (from $244), a classic 40-room boutique hotel with a late breakfast available till noon.
