Lisbon is the country’s capital, brimming with hustle and bustle and located on the coast. You can while your time away café hopping and noseying around neighbourhoods – Bairro Alto being our favourite. The city is colourful and lively and the atmosphere is contagious. A little train jaunt outside the city is Sintra – well a visit. A little up the coast, the beaches of Estoril and Cascais are easy day trips when the sun is out.
