Lisbon, Portugal

Built on seven hills, Lisbon has experienced a renaissance in recent years, making it the cultural star of Portugal.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Capela dos Ossos and Obidos Village.

There's still lots to do: meet the residents at Lisbon Oceanarium, step into the grandiose world of Castelo de S. Jorge, snap pictures at Vasco da Gama Bridge, and take in nature's colorful creations at Miradouro Sao Pedro de Alcantara.

For other places to visit, where to stay, and other tourist information, use the Lisbon itinerary planner.
