Lisbon — 6 nights

City of Seven Hills

Built on seven hills, Lisbon has experienced a renaissance in recent years, making it the cultural star of Portugal.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Lisbon Oceanarium and Castelo de S. Jorge. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Lisbon: Sintra (Quinta da Regaleira, Castelo dos Mouros, &more). Dedicate the 7th (Sun) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. The adventure continues: don't miss a visit to Belém Tower, explore the world behind art at Museu Calouste Gulbenkian, pause for some photo ops at Padrao dos Descobrimentos, and see the interesting displays at Museu Nacional do Azulejo.

Plan my Lisbon trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Newark, USA to Lisbon is an approximately 10.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 5 hours traveling from Newark to Lisbon.

Mountain Island
Composed of nine volcanic islands scattered in the Atlantic some 1,300 km (850 mi) west of continental Portugal, the Azores represent one of Europe's remotest vacation destinations. Settled sporadically over a span of several centuries, the islands in this archipelago retain much of their isolated feel, each one boasting its own distinct culture, dialect, and cuisine. Long overlooked by even the most adventurous travelers, the islands now surprise a growing number of visitors with their lavish natural beauty, good roads, and hospitable towns providing comfortable accommodations and modern amenities. Place the island of Pico at the top of your itinerary to discover Portugal's highest mountain, a picture-perfect volcanic cone rising above a landscape of World Heritage-listed vineyards.
