The capital city and largest city of Portugal, Lisbon charms travellers with its whitewashed buildings, quaint alleyways and laid back feel. Featuring hilly streets and a large suspension bridge over the Tagus, many visitors have actually compared the city with San Francisco. Popular attractions for you to enjoy include the ‘Lisbon Oceanarium' (which was rated among the best in the world), the ‘Maritime Museum' and the ‘Jeronimos Monastery' (the final resting place of 'Vasco de Gama'). Built in the early 1500s, the monastery is one of the most popular tourist sites in Lisbon. Plus, Lisbon's best museum, the ‘Gulbenkian' houses a selection of the world's finest art, jewellery and furniture, which span 2000 years.
The handmade goods in Lisbon make superb souvenirs. Look out for antique and contemporary hand painted tiles, ceramics and textiles, such as tablecloths and embroidery. Gold is also a very popular buy in Lisbon. For well-known brands, such as Hugo Boss and Benetton, head to ‘Chiado'.
The local currency is the Euro. Lisbon is 1 hour ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT+1).
