You're going to love Lisbon
Portugal's capital is one of Europe's most exciting destinations. This may be due to its youthful, creative population, or it could be the gourmet and artistic renaissance that the city is undergoing. Or perhaps it's the blend of superb museums and historical attractions. Whatever the reason, Lisbon will captivate everyone who visits.
Lisbon is great for culture, sightseeing & art.
Get lost in the Alfama district’s maze of pretty, narrow streets where you’ll find indie shops, restaurants and hidden plazas. But wear your walking shoes: the city's many steps and steep inclines can be a workout.
