Lisbon City Break
Wednesday 13 March 2019 (4 Days)
Seven cinematic hillsides overlooking the Rio Tejo cradle Lisbon's postcard-perfect panorama of cobbled alleyways, ancient ruins and white-domed cathedrals – a captivating recipe crafted over centuries.
Lisbon is Europe's second-oldest capital (after Athens), once home to the world's greatest explorers like Vasco da Gama, Magellan and Prince Henry the Navigator, becoming the first true world city, the capital of an empire spreading over all continents, from South America (Brazil) to Asia (Macao, China; Goa, India). The former launch pad for many of the world's greatest voyages is now where modern travellers discover...
...one of Europe's most soulful, captivating and picturesque capitals, built on a series of hills with scenic vistas from every angle.
...the city of the oceans, the only European capital with sunsets on the sea, so close to sandy beaches and with one of the world's largest state-of-the-art aquariums.
...one of the world's greatest natural harbours which attracted different civilizations, now reflected in its architecture and culture recalling Phoenicians, Celts, Romans,
Visigoths and Moors.
...a charming visual time-warp with vintage trams and medieval village-like neighbourhoods.
...a lively but serene and melancholic place with an insatiable appetite for long dinners, coffee breaks and nightlife.
...World Heritage monuments and singular museum treasures, from international design and contemporary art, to treasures from when the East met West,
to the ancient art of tile painting and gilding.
...a reminiscence of the romantic decay of Venice, the exoticism of Naples or Istanbul, the laid-backness of Rome, echos of San Francisco, and Iberian spirit.
...one of Europe's capitals of Romanticism, a real fairytale just minutes from the city centre (Sintra)
