Live it up in Lisbon

The Portuguese city Lisbon, sits on several hills rising from the northern banks of the Tagus river. Known for being a beautiful, historic city, Lisbon is vibrant and modern, with plenty of cultural highlights amid picturesque, pastel-coloured surroundings.

Much of the city is seemingly frozen in time. Yet when you delve deeper, there is a foodie scene to rival any capital, street art on every corner and exciting nightclubs in abandoned warehouses along the waterfront. Book flights to Lisbon and experience the balance between old and new, from the Alfama district’s winding streets to the futuristic Parque das Nações. Wander down to the stunning beaches of Estoril and Cascais to enjoy the dream of city life and beach break. Traditional nightlife can be found in Bairro Alto’s many bars and fado clubs – a beautiful and poetic music akin to flamenco. Lisbon’s balmy year-round temperature combines beautifully with a truly hospitable populace, stay are one of our Lisbon hotels and discover it for yourself.

The best neighbourhoods in Lisbon

The Alfama
The Alfama.

The oldest and probably the most typical section of Lisbon, Alfama is a maze of winding streets and alleyways snaking up and down the hill. You will find blends of Roman, Moorish and medieval architecture, as this is the only section of the city that survived the 1755 earthquake, which decimated other neighbourhoods. Visit the Moorish castle, Castelo de São Jorge, or the gothic Sè Cathedral before heading to one of the many traditional taverns for Bacalhau (salted cod) or Arroz de Marisco (seafood rice).
