Lisbon & Costa de Lisboa
If you’re searching for the ultimate city break then look no further, Lisbon is the place for you. A vibrant nightlife and cultural scene? Tick. Year-round sunshine and relaxed beach living? Done. A diverse and fascinating heritage? Absolutely. And let’s not forget the shops, museums, galleries, sculptures, restaurants and cafes. Whether you’re tucked away in the narrow streets of the Alfama district, admiring the impressive monuments in the Belem area or based in Baixa, the heart of the city, a holiday in Lisbon will not disappoint.
Outside the city there is plenty more to explore along the Costa de Lisboa. Sintra, home to a wealth of ancient castles and palaces, is a day-trip must, as is a visit to the resort of Cascais where you will find beautiful beaches and a leisurely seaside atmosphere. The towns of Sesimbra, Obidos and Setubal are also within easy reach, or you could spend a day on the sands at Costa da Caparica, just 20km or so from the city. What better destination could there be for a Portuguese holiday?
