Stayed in Lagos for a few days and views are breathtaking from the cliff tops and beach alcoves like here. Morning fishermen at work 50 ft from shore.

Beautiful city, the capital of Portugal is ancient and modern at once. Lovely old architecture mixed with equally impressive buildings built yesterday. And it's on the sea! Hurrah!

Portugal has amazing food and excellent weather, and has a bit more of an old-world feel to it than many other parts of W. Europe. Just outside Lisbon, the village of Sintra has gorgeous old Rococo palaces and cute little boutique shops. Don't miss the Ginjinha, a local sour cherry liqueur served in edible dark chocolate shot glasses.

Lisbon is an old world city with forward thinking conveniences. Wide beautiful avenues with art nuevo architecture intice you deeper to every street. If you follow the flow on the main avenues, you'll find yourself along the Tejo River to the Praça Commercial which is full of history site seerers, lovers, friends, some pigeons and great views.
Though driving can be an experience, you can see more and not have to worry about parking by taking the metro to your destinations. The maps are clear and downtown travel is much safefer than New World cities can be.
End your tour up at Saint George's Castle for a unforgettable sunset over this very small old world capital.

I loved Lisbon.
I was lucky enough to travel here for work and spent a week with five talented people in this inspirational city. We spent our days exploring the city, meeting people, eating and drinking. I love the blend of European charm, history and just enough gritty edge to make it cool.

I love Lisbon and all of its hills. There's great night life (fado music!) and plenty to see during the day. It looks like they have a replica of the Golden Gate Bridge, but it's really their own bridge designed by the same architect.

Beautiful scenery, delicious food, ridiculously friendly people and laid back Mediterranean attitude: Lisbon fits the bill.
When people asked what I did in Lisbon, I feel like telling them "I lived well!" There was only one disappointing meal in the whole week (a "must-go" place that is obviously overhyped). Everyone was accommodating from the lady in the dress shop who kept finding cute things for me based on what I had already picked out to the waiter who brought out shots of Portuguese liquor for free so we could experience it. Some friends asked about how dirty it was and all the "gypsies"...if by dirty you mean old, well then, that's half of Europe and there were no roving bands of "gypsies" when I was there. Only the over-earnest buskers and the occasional sunglass salesman.
Lisbon feels like a hidden gem, one that you want to show off to everyone but at the same time want to hide in case everyone comes and spoils it.
