"For the traveller who comes in from the sea, Lisbon, even from afar, rises like a fair vision in a dream, clear-cut against a bright blue sky which the sun gladdens with its gold. And the domes, the monuments, the old castles jut up above the mass of houses, like far-off heralds of this delightful seat, of this blessed region."
Fernando Pessoa (portuguese poet)
Welcome to Lisbon, the oldest city in Western Europe where the ancient meets modern culture, the sun meets the river and castles meet all the stories to be told. This is the city where the food is amazing, the weather is outstanding, the hospitality is incredible and the history is worth discovering. Here your days will be full of exploring and your nights complete with moments worth remembering.
Lisbon, the city of the seven hills, is where you'll discover fado, pastéis de belém and bacalhau. The city where you'll get lost in the beauty of the streets, between Alfama, Bica and Castelo. Here you'll always be greeted with an "Olá!" (o-lá / Hello) accompanied by a friendly smile and the locals will be genuinely glad to help you.
