LISBON CRUISES

LISBON HIGHLIGHTS

Portugal’s capital really does have it all: photogenic architecture, dramatic landscapes and idyllic beaches, thanks to its coastal position. You may have heard of the seven hills of Lisbon, which surround the city like guards, providing sweeping vistas from viewing terraces. We recommend starting at Castelo de São Jorge, which perches over the city, visible from almost everywhere. Take a guided tour along its 11th-century ramparts and seek shade in the serene courtyards. Back in the city, soak up the spirit of the city on Lisbon cruises by spending the evening in the lively Barrio Alto, Pink Street or Santa Apolónia. Lisbon is just as famous for its foodie heritage as for its nightlife or architecture. Of course, traditional bacalhau (salted cod) is a must, but there’s plenty else to try besides: from monkfish and octopus to juicy Alentejan beef. Try some local dishes and pick up your own ingredients at the Time Out Mercado da Ribeira, located riverside in the city centre. Whether you’re museum-hopping or searching for a hip wine bar, look out for azulejos – intricate hand-crafted tiles that often cover doorsteps, walls and even building facades. Find some of the most beautiful and impressive in the Battle Room at the 17th-century Fronteira palace.
