Lisbon City, Portugal

Lisbon as one of the Iberian peninsula’s oldest cities in Portugal. This is a place where history is hidden in every corner. Strolling through Alfama, the oldest district of Lisbon, is like stepping back in time. You can climb the slithery pebbled streets, worn smooth by the feet of countless travellers, up to Castelo de S. Jorge, which dates back to 2nd century BC. It also offers some of the most beautiful views of the city, including the statue of Christ the King, located at Santuario de Cristo Rei in Almada, visible on the far bank of the River Tejo. If you crave more panoramic views of the old city, try taking the Santa Justa Lift, a 19th century elevator in Baixa.

Do not miss Pasteis de Nata, the famous Portuguese egg tart pastry which is sold near the monastery, before ending your day in Bairro Alto, where you can enjoy Lisbon’s vibrant nightlife.
