Europe’s second-oldest capital (after Athens), and considered one of the “World’s 15 Best Waterfront Cities” by the Huffington Post and mentioned by the UK’s The Guardian and elsewhere for its unique foods and spectacular places to eat, this is a must see area for many reasons.
Its the only European capital where you can enjoy a delicious and typical dinner with one of the greatest sunsets on the seaside. Whatever your preferences are when you travel, you’ll find them here! If you are more into nature, don’t worry…there is a fairytale come true just minutes form the main city – Sintra and the lovely and charming Cascais & Estoril.
Where once upon a time kings and queens went for their summer vacations you can now enjoy the old palaces and all its beautiful natural surroundings. Have you ever seen dolphins in their natural habitat? Then you will love Setúbal, a harbor city, south from Lisbon where you’ll find a residential community of 32 dolphins living in the Sado River. Also not to miss is the typical fish market where you can see some of the Portuguese traditions live as well as its characteristic fishes.
Nearby lays Sesimbra, an idyllic village where you can get to know an emblematic local fishing port.
