What can I expect in Lisbon?
Seven hillsides overlooking the Tagus River cradle Lisbon’s picturesque panorama of ancient ruins, cobbled streets and white-domed cathedrals. Infused with just the right amount of tradition and modernity, Lisbon attracts tourists from all over the world.
Portugal’s capital is the country’s biggest city and there’s a plethora of things to do, from exploring ancient monuments to enjoying a day at the beach. Despite the hills, Lisbon is a delightful city to explore on foot, particularly in the summer when the sun is out and al fresco dining is plentiful.

Why should I visit Lisbon?
Head for Alfama, an historic quarter in the city, to experience its narrow, cobbled streets from the Moorish era, where wrought iron lamps and balconies embellish buildings in every colour of the rainbow. Here you’ll find some of the city’s iconic vintage yellow trams that trundle up and down the seven hills where Lisbon’s located.
Sample Pastel de natas, Portugal's famous custard tarts. More into savoury things than sweet? Then try bacalhau (dried and salted cod fish) in one of Lisbon’s tascas (traditional restaurants).
After dark, Bairro Alto is one of the liveliest areas to visit, with an eclectic range of bars, restaurants and nightlife to suit every taste.
And don't forget Lisbon's not too far away from the coast too!
