Location: Lisbon Stopovers
Lisbon is a city full of character with its bustling trams winding their way through the narrow streets and its mosaic pavements. Climb the Castelo de Sao Jorge hill and visit this magnificent medieval fortress with its wonderful views over the River Tagus, or even take a mini cruise along it.
It is a city full of maritime history, from its museum and monuments to its traditions. But it is also a cosmopolitan city with world class contemporary museums, prominent cultural events and every style of architecture.
Eating out is a part of daily Lisbon life with a wonderful selection of cafes and tearooms for your afternoon pastel de natas (custard tart) followed by a host of restaurants ranging from traditional taverns to sophisticated modern establishments to try out the wonderful fish and shellfish washed down with fabulous Portuguese wine.
