Why go to Lisbon

Lisbon city breaks are more than its pretty cobbled streets, knock-out viewpoints and yellow wooden trams. In Portugal’s capital, you’ll be charmed by fantastic food, vibrant nightlife, nearby beaches and the soulful fado music that echoes in the streets.

Known as “The City of Seven Hills”, a great way to start a Lisbon holiday is to look down over its rooftops to the River Tagus from one of its many viewpoints. A standout spot is its Moorish Castelo de São Jorge, which looms over the city. The castle is in Lisbon’s historic Alfama district, where you can wander narrow cobbled lanes to find a 12th-century cathedral, its Museum of Fado and the white-domed Church of Santa Engrácia.

There are plenty of places to refuel after exploring the attractions in this hilly city. Make sure you try a pastel de nata (Portuguese custard tart sprinkled with cinnamon), bacalhau (salted cod) and ginjinha cherry liqueur. The city’s food scene is booming at the moment with seafood featuring heavily on menus. To try affordable cuisine from some of the city’s top chefs, head to the Time Out Market, where a panel of city experts has chosen all of the dishes.

*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.

ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.
