Lisbon

Founded – legend has it – by Ulysses on his return from Troy, conquered by invading Moors and celebrated as the leading European city through the Age of Discovery,

Lisbon’s history stretches beyond that of Paris and even Rome and makes it a uniquely diverse destination. With its stunning architecture, quaint streets and exciting nightlife, Lisbon is truly a city of the world. Perched on the north bank of the River Tagus, with less than half a million residents, Lisbon has a laid-back, warm Mediterranean attitude. Discover Alfama’s winding, medieval streets and Belém’s stunning UNESCO world heritage monuments, pay a visit to Barrio Alto’s stylish cafés and alternative boutiques; the diversity of Lisbon‘s neighborhoods are the envy of cities twice its size.

After dark, however, the sleepy back streets transform into one of Europe’s most exciting nightspots, as bustling bars, clubs and restaurants spill out onto the streets. Lisbon’s character and vibrancy is sure to delight the elite traveler.
