Built on seven hills, Lisbon has experienced a renaissance in recent years, making it the cultural star of Portugal.
Museu Calouste Gulbenkian and Castelo de S. Jorge are good opportunities to explore the local culture. For shopping fun, head to Avenida da Liberdade or A Outra Face da Lua. Change things up with these side-trips from Lisbon: Cabo da Roca (in Colares), Evora (Museu do Artesanato e do Design -MADE, Capela dos Ossos, & more) and Sintra (Sintra National Palace, Sintra Museum Klaus Ohnsmann, & more). Dedicate the 6th (Mon) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. Spend the 12th (Sun) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's lots more to do: get to know the fascinating history of Belém Tower, get a taste of the local shopping with A Arte da Terra, wander the streets of Bairro Alto, and ponder the design of Rossio Square.
