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.
