Lisbon, Portugal

As the capital of Portugal, Lisbon triumphantly spreads its welcoming city atmosphere and its several impressive ancient sites over the seven steep hillsides that overlook the Tagus Estuary and River.

Take in St. George’s Castle, overlooking the city from atop its highest hill, and stroll through the countless balconies ablaze with geraniums and iron lamps in the medieval Alfama quarter.
