Lisbon is a stylish capital and offers the perfect surrounds
for relaxed exploration, with charming streets crisscrossing its squares and
plazas. Traditional shops, bars and restaurants line the cobbled streets,
welcoming you with rustic cooking, warming spirits and ornate souvenirs.
With monasteries, castles and museums aplenty to explore, a
few days in Lisbon perfectly complements a river cruise in Portugal. Take in
the ancient monuments of Jerónimos Monastery, Belém Tower and São Jorge Castle,
or discover a fine collection of contemporary art at the Museu Coleção Berardo.
Tracing the legacy of fado is, of course, a must on your
visit to the Portuguese capital, and perfectly accompanies an evening of Port
wine tasting or an exploration of Portugal’s world-renowned desserts.
