Lisbon, the capital city of Portugal, like Rome, lies on seven hills. Located near the Tagus River, it offers unparalleled vistas. The wealth of monuments, churches and museums along its tree-lined avenues will fascinate even the casual student of history. Beautiful public gardens, squares with decorated pavements, and patterned tile walls form a pleasant vista of natural and artistic beauty as you tour the city. Stop in the superb shops, visit colorful markets and refresh yourself at one of the numerous sidewalk cafes.
