Nestled between river and sea, curving from hill to hill, Lisbon is the sensual queen of Portugal.
Her streets are filled with the song of her people; the chatter of vibrant life, the passion of fado, and the breeze that once carried her men to faraway lands. To ensure a full sensory experience, do as the locals do and wander from the Jewish quarter up to the glorious castles on foot, take your drinks and petiscos into the fresh air, and enjoy the gorgeous climate and views that Lisbon is blessed with.
