Lisbon is the capital city of beautiful Portugal. It is also one of the most vibrant and charismatic cities in Europe. It’s rich in heritage and has an intricate history. Wander its cobbled streets and discover the influences of the Greeks, the Romans and the Moors. These influences make Lisbon the stunning city that it is today and perhaps, the reason that it always ranks within the top ten of Europe’s best cities.
Of course, being the cosmopolitan city that it is, you’ll find an abundance of modern amenities. Head to the market for artisan wares or treat yourself to something designer at the elegant boutique stores. Lovers of great food will not be disappointed with the choices of fine dining establishments, local tapas bars and pavement cafes.
However, Lisbon is a city of contrasts, and you’ll find a good deal more as you venture outwards.
Head to Sintra where you’ll find impressive mountains, dewy forests, exotic gardens and glittering palaces. This Unesco World Heritage site boasts verdant hills that roll down to the blue Atlantic. Quite frankly, it’s like something from the pages of Narnia. Head to Belem, a nautical town on the Adriatic coast. As dusk falls, the moonlit sky illuminates the monastery. It’s the ideal time to wander and don’t miss Alfama, here you’ll find a rustic village feel. Narrow lanes give way to Moorish architecture, pleasant pavement cafes and if you visit early in the morning, you’ll even see the fisher-women selling their catch from their own homes. Alfama offers a glimpse of past times that we find utterly romantic. What’s more, Lisbon offers a coastline of beautiful sandy beaches. This destination has it all!
