Lisbon City Breaks & HolidaysReference WW60778
Lisbon is Portugal’s hilly, coastal capital city making it one of the most charismatic and vibrant city break holidays to take in Europe.
Lisbon has somewhat rediscovered itself in recent years, reclaiming its rightful place as the 'golden city' of southern Europe. Much of this is due to the officials of Lisbon having elected to rejuvenate the city during the 1990s. This ongoing focus on the future has meant making the most of the attractions, both old and new.
One day can span centuries as visitors move between the picturesque medieval section of the Alfama district and historic São Jorge castle to being amazed by the spectacle of the futuristic Oceanarium of Lisboa.
If tourists really want to see the city in style, they must be sure not to miss a ride on the famous Tram 28, which winds its way through the oldest parts of the city and give visitors a feel of the history and rich culture which Lisbon has to offer.
