We recommend at least 4 nights in Lisbon to get under the skin of this stunning European capital. Our expert guide will take you on walks through the beautiful backstreets, take you to museums out of hours and private collections, while also wining and dining at the best spots. There is a fabulous food culture here and we always love trying new places. The city has a thriving art scene with regular pop up exhibitions.
There are lots of places to explore within easy reach of the city and our favourite is Sintra, with its fairy-tale villas, gardens and mountain landscape.
Lisbon is also a good base from which to explore Portugal more widely, not least Obidos, Batalha and Tomar.
