Lisbon

Lisbon is fado, history, cuisine, cosmopolitan, hospitality, light... a light that impresses those that visit it and brings the city’s architecture alive !!

Nowadays the past is mixed with a modern, vibrant and bold culture. It is easy to wander the streets and alleyways and find all sorts of signs of artistic expression. But also indoors, the city’s theatres have a full and varied programme throughout the year and even if you don’t go to see a show, it’s worth taking a look at many of them just to appreciate their historical and architectural value. Lisbon is also now an essential stop for the biggest international artists and in the summer the festivals fill the city with music.

Whilst exploring and trying to get to know the city, dress comfortably because in order to really feel the city’s soul a bit of physical exertion is needed... Lisbon is about the visible details and the more hidden ones.
