About the Destinations:
The gateway to both the Atlantic and the Mediterranean, Lisbon is a dynamic port city that fuses together two distinct but complementary lifestyles, providing visitors with the perfect mix of European culture, cuisine, and cosmopolitan flair. Regal palaces and cathedrals, busy markets and plazas, and quiet city gardens converge to create the unique rhythm of Lisboeta life.
While strolling along the mosaic sidewalks, you'll likely hear beautiful fado music echoing from tiny tavern patios, see colorful clotheslines strung between open windows, and smell the mix of delicious herbs and garlic wafting through the air from local al fresco restaurants in the Alfama quarter or Bairro Alto. If you appreciate old-world architecture, be sure to visit the Padrao dos Descobrimentos, the Mosteiro dos Jeronimos, and the UNESCO World Heritage site of Torre de Belem.
