Lisbon is one of Europe’s most exciting and beautiful cities, with breathtaking architecture, world-class museums, a lively cultural scene and excellent restaurants. Visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Tower of Belem, explore the narrow winding streets of the charming Alfama district, Lisbon’s oldest quarter, visit the Castelo de Sao Jorge and take a stroll through the Jeronimos Monastery, a World Heritage Site and the resting place of Vasco de Gama. Lisbon’s trams and funicular railways are a great way to explore the city, but it also benefits from being small enough to explore on foot.
