Vibrant city culture, amazing views, beach-time.

Lisbon is a must-visit European port. This city, which had grown up amidst its 7 hills, has a myriad of attractions, from the charm of its old quarter to the panoramic view from the ‘miradouros’ to its coastal and seafaring heritage.

Climb to the Miradouro de Sãu Pedro de Alcântara, where pleasant gardens and a castle await you, along with a spectacular view of the city below. Down in Alfama, the Moorish old quarter, the winding, cobbled streets offer a charming place to stop for the signature dish of Lisbon, bacalhou, or salted cod.

If bacalhou is not to your taste, Lisbon has an abundance of high quality restaurants where you can sample other local specialities along with a glass or two of Vinho Verde. As if the city life is not enough, Lisbon has another surprise – stunning beaches along its Atlantic coastline where you can soak up the sun before returning to your Celebrity cruise ship.

Weather & what to pack

Lisbon’s temperatures vary from what here in the UK we would consider to be a warm summer, around 24 degrees Celsius, to around 11 degrees Celsius in the winter. Pack light clothing with a cardigan or jumper for cooler evenings. Flat comfortable shoes are also a must if you plan to explore any of those seven hills! Don’t forget your beachwear for some sunbathing and a swim in the sea.
