Built on seven hills, Lisbon has experienced a renaissance in recent years, making it the cultural star of Portugal.
Take a break from the city and head to Nature & Wildlife Tours and Parque Natural da Arrabida. Let the collections at Museu Calouste Gulbenkian and Museu Nacional do Azulejo capture your imagination. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Lisbon: Molhe Leste Beach (in Peniche), Nazare (Dolphin & Whale Watching, Praia do Norte, & more) and Rota Vicentina (in Santiago do Cacem). And it doesn't end there: wander the streets of Alfama, learn about winemaking at The Best Portugal, steep yourself in history at Castelo de S. Jorge, and get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Lisbon Oceanarium.
