History and culture in the perfect mix
With a climate that stays warm yet fresh throughout the year and 20 centuries of history to enjoy, Lisbon, Portugal is a wonderful place to explore. The streets of the Portuguese capital come to life every June with feasts and celebrations for the major saints, when the whole city seems to revel together, yet every month of the year seems to bring something new and exciting to enjoy. Whenever you feel like a break, Lisbon will welcome you with open arms.
Lisbon’s medieval quarters are particularly special. Bairro Alto, Madragoa and Belem are the pick of the ancient quarters, with tight twisting streets filled with historic monuments from Jeronimos Monastery to the Belem Tower, from which you can enjoy breathtaking views across the city. The evenings are the best time to explore, when the cool evenings make walking and climbing easy, and the uplighting on the oldest monuments really brings their beauty to the fore. The quaint tram system that connects the city has to be among the best ways to travel through any major European city, and simply adds to the magical experience of Lisbon holidays.
