Essential city info, articles & travel tips from our local hosts
Elegantly draped over seven undulating hills, straddling the sea and the River Tagus, Lisbon demands your undivided attention from the word go. Such a storybook scene is no accident – Portugal’s capital has been carefully crafted over centuries. Its story started in the Stone Age, was embellished by the Romans, expanded in the Middle Ages, and new chapters are constantly being added. The result is a city of ancient ruins, winding cobblestone alleys, white-domed cathedrals, and lavishly Baroque churches, with a wave of contemporary additions – glitzy restaurants, chic boutiques, and trendy lounges – only expanding the ever-growing list of things to do. Quaint old trams, a local institution, rattle through neighborhoods decorated with perfectly placed colorful tiles to landmarks like the stately Lisbon Cathedral. As the sun sets, hilltop terraces with sweeping views of glowing terracotta rooftops and beaches are just the place to wind down with a fruity sangria while planning a day trip to a nearby resort town.
