Guide of Lisbon, capital of Portugal

Lisbon, the capital of Portugal, is an authentic and sparkling city to discover. 

The city is built on seven hills, so don't forget your trainers during your stay: expect to take steep streets to reach some of the monuments and the most beautiful viewpoints - miradouros, in Portuguese - of the city. If you want to climb effortlessly, don't panic: between the mythical yellow trams full of charm and the more recent tuk-tuk, you'll find no shortage of pleasant alternatives.

The different areas of central Lisbon are all worth exploring: you'll be charmed by the authenticity of the Alfama, excited to go out for a drink in the lively Bairro Alto and love to get lost in the streets of Baixa and Chiado.

If you like to discover a city through its historical monuments, you can't miss the Belem district, home to the emblematic tower of the same name, the Hieronymites monastery and the Archaeology Museum. Another must-see is the São Jorge Castle, an imposing construction that overlooks the Alfama district and offers a breathtaking view of the city.
