Lisbon

The City of Seven Hills

Pocket

The sun is almost always shining on the coastal capital of Portugal. With sandy, beautiful beaches less than half an hour’s drive from the bustling centre, Lisbon is a city full of possibilities.

When packing, be sure to make room for a pair of comfy shoes, as Lisbon is famously set amongst seven hills. Don’t worry though – the hills are definitely worth the climb and they provide stunning many miradouro – lookout points in Portuguese – over the city. The highest of these is Miradouro da Senhora do Monte, a relaxed place to kick back and watch the sun set across the River Tagus. And, if you’re tired of walking, no one will blink if you cheat and take the tram back down.
