Lisbon, Portugal

Lisbon perfectly balances its traditional Portuguese roots with the highlights of a modern city. A thriving hub for culture, gourmet cuisine, beaches and architecture, it’s easy to see why the Portuguese capital is a red-hot destination. Home to several UNESCO World Heritage sites, Lisbon’s top attractions include the historic Belém Tower (along with delicious Portuguese tarts nearby); and the 16th-century Jerónimos monastery, a breathtaking monument of deep historical and cultural significance. City slickers can take a trip up the Santa Justa Lift, hit the beach for some sun and sand and indulge in gourmet cuisine at some of the finest restaurants in the world.
