Things to do
Situated at the mouth of the River Tagus, Lisbon is one of the oldest cities in Western Europe. It’s brimming with history, with reminders of its maritime past around every corner. Marvel at the faded imperial grandeur, palaces and unique Pombaline architecture as you stroll the city.
Relaxed and laid-back during the day, Lisbon bursts into life at night. The city’s Barrio Alto transforms from a sleepy neighbourhood into a hive of bars, restaurants and cocktail lounges. Sample a local wine in a bohemian bar or discover one of Lisbon’s exclusive rooftop bars and sip cocktails with spectacular views of the city at night.
From award-winning cured Iberian chouriço to the iconic (and addictive) Pastel de Nata, this city is full of culinary delights. Discover exclusive, Michelin starred restaurants tucked away down secluded alleyways. Sample traditional seafood dishes from recipes unchanged for centuries. And accompany your meals with Douro Valley wine or a tempting glass of port.
