City of Seven Hills

Built on seven hills, Lisbon has experienced a renaissance in recent years, making it the cultural star of Portugal. This Atlantic-facing city is widely recognized for its red roofs and is as impressive as many European capitals, but with fewer crowds. The city boasts large monuments and museums as well as quaint backstreets and old neighborhoods full of character. Cozy cafes, live music venues, repurposed bars, and diverse discos make up the fabric of Lisbon's vibrant nightlife. Listen to fado--traditional Portuguese music--pouring out onto the streets, go shopping in the chic Chiado area, or spend your time viewing its imposing historical structures. Our Portugal trip itinerary planning site combines visitor reviews with your personal interests to make an itinerary informed by experts, but tailored to suit your style.

Where to stay in Lisbon

Check into one of Lisbon's grand city center hotels to position yourself well to explore the central historical districts on foot. To avoid the potentially high prices of some of the Old Town's central upscale hotels, try staying in a hostel instead. While some hostels have an upper age limit for their guests, they're affordable and oftentimes offer access to attractions on par with or better than bigger hotels. In the upper town, opt for one of the family-run bed and breakfasts, which provide affordable rooms and, as the name would suggest, include a meal as well.
