Discover old-fashioned trams and a serene monastery on city breaks to Lisbon, or dance until dawn on its cobbled streets.
An evening stroll through Alfama, the oldest part of Lisbon, reveals stone-built seafood restaurants blaring out soulful Portuguese guitar music. Step inside for a zesty caipirinha cocktail, or hop aboard a creaking 19th-century tram for the ride up to Bairro Alto, where superstar DJs play almost nightly. At the waterfront end of the Baixa, the city's main shopping area, you'll find buskers serenading the espresso-supping locals. Further up, on a slope overlooking the city, Lisbon's Romanesque cathedral hides gorgeous Gothic treasures.
