Plan Your Lisbon Vacation

Lisbon bears the mark of an incredible heritage with laid-back pride. Spread over seven hills north of the Rio Tejo (Tagus River) estuary, the city also presents a variety of faces to those who negotiate its switchback streets. In the oldest bairros (neighborhoods), stepped alleys are lined with pastel-color houses decked with laundry; here and there miradouros (vantage points) afford spectacular views. Eléctricos (trams) clank through the streets, and blue-and-white azulejos (and glazed ceramic tiles) adorn churches and fountains.
