Welcome to Portugal’s capital city, Lisbon. Lisbon is the perfect combination of cobbled alleyways, ancient ruins, and traditional cathedrals. With a distinctively Portuguese culture, this is the ideal place to sample local cuisines, meet locals, and base yourself for access to some outstanding day trips. With sunny skies forecasted for most of the year and nearby stunning coastlines, Lisbon is the ideal destination for beach holidays. Stretch out on the beaches of Cascais and Estoril in the summer sun, located only 20-minutes drive from central Lisbon. Here, you’ll find that the Atlantic Ocean provides a cool, refreshing contrast to the warm weather. Back in the capital, you'll find the ancient appeal of wooden trams and iron funiculars that are still used today. They’ll save you from hiking up Lisbon’s trademark hills in hot weather. Lisbon has seven trademark hills that spread across the cityscape, demanding your attention from every angle of the city. Including a group of terraces known as miradouros or viewpoints, a visit here gives you a captivating view over Lisbon and beyond. Sit down to a delicious meal here with the most breathtaking views, and sample fine wines while looking out to the horizon.
