Introduction

Lisbon manages to combine centuries of charm with the metropolitan feel of a modern day capital city. Bairro Alto, the higher city, is a region buzzing 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 with its decorative exterior, it remains a valued form of transportation to this day.

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

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