Lisbon

Profile

Lisbon is one of the oldest European cities and it doesn't take a visitor too long to understand what the successive tribes and peoples that inhabited it for the past 30-odd centuries found so appealing: the hilly site near the estuary of the Tagus where it flows into the Atlantic Ocean is gorgeous, and the mild, sunny climate makes the place even more welcoming. Besides the geographical blessings, Lisbon impresses with its great food, beautiful (if sad) music, and courteous (if reserved) people. Add to that a layer of international diplomatic intrigue, literary fame, and ever-present feeling of saudade and you have a recipe for a place that will continue to draw and mesmerize its fans for centuries to come.
