Lisbon

Centuries-old charm meets modern glamour

Visit Lisbon

Introduction

Lisbon manages to combine centuries of charm with the metropolitan feel of a modern-day capital city. The higher region, Bairro Alto, buzzes with vibrant bars and restaurants linked to the lower town by the stunning Elevador de Santa Justa. When it was first built this street elevator was a wonder of modern engineering and remains a valued form of transportation to this day.

Lisbon tram

By far the most rewarding way to travel in Lisbon is to hop on a Route 28 tram. Remodelled on the original 1930s fleet, it's one of the most atmospheric transport rides in the world. Winding through the city, it offers stunning views over the Tagus Estuary and takes you onto the affluent shopping quarter of Chiado or the streets of the city's oldest district, Alfama.

Rossio Square, Lisbon, Portugal

Home to over 10% of the Portuguese population, this city fosters a vibrant 21st century vibe, a happening centre of commerce where cosmopolitan venues rub shoulders with 1930s era cafes, presided over by the majestic Moorish Castle of San Jorge. It all makes for a capital that's up there with the best of Europe's city break destinations.
