Images Of Lisbon

Built on seven hills, Lisbon is quickly becoming one of Europe's most popular capitals. Small enough to explore in a day but with enough going on to keep you here for a week, it also boasts one of the continent's most pleasurable climates. Plan your visit here and take one of the old yellow trams past the city's sights, crunch into a sweet custard pie, enjoy the breathtaking vistas, and treat your hedonistic tendencies to the countless bars in one of the world's craziest districts, the Bairro Alto.

    Great city with great food and drink

    Safe, fun city to enjoy a few days. Food is awesome and good day trips to Sintra or a few days to Porto!

    Insider Tip:Stay at Travellers House and the experience will be even better! Make sure you try all the great pastries available in the town.

    One of the best European cities

    After visiting, Lisbon is now one of my favourite cities I've been too. There's so much to do in this city, as well as nice places to visit like Sintra and Cascais which are both a short distance on a very cheap train journey away.

    Insider Tip:If you go to Sintra, go early in the morning so you have a whole day there as there are so many different things to see there. Also if you go to cascais to rent out the free bikes go early too as they quickly run out.
