A Vibrant and Modern 'Old' City!
Portugal's capital city is the history of the world writ large - the stepping off point for Vasco da Gama, an outpost of Julius Caesar's Rome, a Germanic settlement from the fifth century, routed by the Moors in the eight century, recaptured by the Crusaders and older than London or Paris; if it's history you're after, Lisbon has plenty!
But more than that, Lisbon is one of the most beautiful of the European cities and just perfect for city breaks or short breaks in Europe. Walking the streets is an exercise in architectural delight, olde world shopping and pavement life as Lisbonites enjoy their coffee, pastries and aperitifs.
Lisbon (and Portugal) is home to sherry, fado and great football. The people are passionate, the sights are fabulous and the shopping is the equivalent of anywhere in Europe. Come any time for cheap city breaks. You'll love the food, you'll enjoy the late night adventures, you'll find something to explore around every second corner.
