Decadent and enchanting, Lisbon is a city that’s easy to love. The London Telegraph enjoys its “simple charm and maritime magic of a vintage-era Southern European capital.” But don’t let that fool you into thinking this is a stuffy old town. Lisbon effortlessly combines the modern and new and we love it for its ability to do this. And for its glow. How is it that the sun always shines in Lisbon? We love the cable cars and trams bustling down from the hilltop neighbourhoods to the elegant squares and on the port. The live music including jazz and traditional fado. Its coffee is amazing and the abundant pastry shops are unforgettable. And yes, you really should visit the Jeronimos Monastery and taste the famous Belem pastries, in one of Lisbon’s great neighbourhoods. And when you’ve done that – head up the hills to one of the many excellent viewing points of the city such as the Castelo de Sao Jorge. Or visit the amazing National Tile Museum to understand how “Lisbon wore a set of jewels that other cities didn’t bother to” according to the New York Times. One of Lisbon’s biggest fans, John Malkovich calls the city “a feast for the eyes”. He’s been travelling here since the early 1990s and adores the architecture, culture and food so much that he opened a restaurant called Bica do Sapato overlooking the Tagus river. And delve into the Alfama for fado, great architecture and that amazing combination of the old with the new you find everywhere in Lisbon.
