Lisbon Feature


Top Reasons to Go to Lisbon

World Treasures. Lisbon's Mosteiro dos Jerónimos and Torre de Belém, both UNESCO World Heritage sites, are grand monuments reflecting Portugal's proud seafaring past.

City Sophistication. The Museu Colecção Berardo and Museu Gulbenkian are just two of the museums that make the city a cultural hub.

Victorian Style. Explore Lisbon on ancient trams that wind through narrow cobbled streets where washing flaps from the windows of pastel-color houses and sardines sizzle on the grill.

Old-Fashioned Hospitality. Even in this modern city, shopkeepers and café owners tend to move at a slower pace, and old-fashioned courteousness prevails.

Buzzing Nightlife. Lisbon has a reputation across Europe as a great place to hit the town, with bars and nightclubs often located in stunning riverside settings.
