The hilly capital of Portugal, Lisbon is a historic city of some half a million inhabitants. It boasts an international airport on its doorstep, a harbour on one side and the stunning coastal suburb of Cascais on the other. The city is dripping in colour and history – Lisbon was the launch pad for 15th and 16th century world discoveries.

Lisbon is wonderfully diverse with city districts displaying unique character, architecture, and lifestyles. Lisbon combines old and new superbly – the historic districts of Alfama and Baixa exist in marked contrast to the modern neighbourhood of Parque das Nações or the bohemian Bairro Alto.

Visitors to Lisbon are rarely far from colour or water – the urban colours are magical under the Atlantic sun, whilst the river Tagus dominates the city to the south and west, offering fantastic activities and venues.

Cascais is inextricably linked to Lisbon, a coastal suburb that acts as the playground for the capital. Blessed with nature and rugged coastline, Cascais delivers great event activity and group dining options. Surfing the Atlantic rollers, coasteering in the coves, or tee off on a coastal course, this is an adventure capital like few others.

The airport in Lisbon is located just a few miles from the city centre and trams offer a wonderfully authentic means to transit the city, climbing the colourful streets, and accessing the central landmarks. Walking the streets of this compact city offers a fantastic way to experience the atmosphere. 

Shopping, waterfront dining, vantage points and endless historic landmarks make Lisbon a truly fascinating city. The weather is superb and the dining sublime – it’s a wonder that the explorers ever sought new pastures.
