    Loads to love in adventurous Lisbon

    Hills, castle keeps, an amazing location on the Tagus estuary, centuries of history and countless neighbourhoods make Lisbon one of the most fascinating capitals in the world. Since booming during the Age of Exploration, it's staked its claim as the home of adventurers. Marine museums and grand monuments to Portugal's most daring seafarers stand tall against the water, the historic edge of a city that forever pulses with life. There are buzzing open-air bars and taste-bud-tingling seafood cantinas, all mixed into the barrios, making Lisbon holiday rentals a truly enticing choice this year.

    Lisbon – there's no need for maps here

    Bin the map and head out to explore Lisbon's patchwork of barrios. Grandiose Baixa starts things off, spilling out onto the Tagus River, with its wide plazas and neoclassical palaces. You might soon find yourself rattling on historic tram 28 over the cobbles of Alfama, wondering just how like a maze the streets can become. Alight at Martim Moniz, a steep-sided area of spice-scented Indian eateries and cool cafes, all rising to mirador lookouts along the parks above. At night, the Barrio Alto bursts into action – think beer bars and nightclubs galore.

    Lisbon is architecture and history to wonder at

    Lisbon holiday rentals are perfect for heritage lovers. Some even hide in the shadow of the mighty Castelo de Sao Jorge, which towers atop the capital with its Moorish crenellations, hiding archaeological finds and formidable cannons from centuries long gone. UNESCO World Heritage status is an obvious achievement for the Gothic majesty of the Jeronimos Monastery that sits below, its handsome 500-year-old interiors open to tours. The Museu da Marinha is next door, chronicling Lisbon's place in the formative Age of Exploration.

    Never a dull day in Lisbon

    Lisbon's lovely summers of warm river breezes and temperatures that sit regularly in the high 20s make it a fine place to be between June and August. But you don't have to come then to make the most of the capital. Those who book Lisbon holiday rentals for autumn months, like September and October, also usually get great weather for strolling the neighbourhoods. Springtime, in April and May, brings prime sightseeing conditions, thanks to the smaller crowds. And then winter comes, enlivening the metropolis with students from across the continent.

    Nature that grips in Lisbon

    Like Rome, Lisbon is draped over 7 hills. You can see the topography peaking and falling from lookouts atop the Castelo de Sao Jorge, up to Belem and down to the edge of the Tagus estuary. Although it's officially on the riverside, it's a quick hop to beaches like Cascais and Peniche for roaring Atlantic surf and swims in the ocean. The Sintra Mountains are the other great natural wonder. They soar to the clouds, with their wooded slopes clad in oak and pine, to the west – look out for mysterious Moorish castles within.
