Enjoy the best of Portugal
Looking to combine a city trip with a beach vacation? Book a flight to Lisbon and visit this vibrant city under the Portuguese sun. Explore the local nightlife in Bairro Alto and eat sweet pastéis in the country's most famous café: Café A Brasileira. After a long day of walking, take the Elevador do Carmo for a quick ride from the lower to the upper streets. Tired of sightseeing? Vast sandy beaches await just around the corner.
Beautiful squares and laidback parks.
The Baixa district is the heart of Lisbon. Here you will find a mix of international shopping chains, designer stores and traditional craft shops. The Rua Augusta runs along the most beautiful squares in the country, where you can sip a drink and enjoy your surroundings. Very different but equally exciting is the Parque das Nações. Enjoy the area's futuristic architecture, museums, restaurants and state-of-the-art aquarium. Another popular attraction is the small village of Fátima, one of the most famous pilgrimage sites in the world, just outside Lisbon. Lisbon is not only the ideal destination for a city trip, but also as the starting point for a longer vacation in Portugal. Treat yourself: book a flight to Lisbon now!

ARTS & CULTURE
The creaking yellow vintage trams of the Carris public transportation company look as if they belong in a museum. These are one of the best ways to get around the city. Tram 28 is famous, taking riders on a 40-minute trip up (or down) the hill through old neighbourhoods such as Graça, Alfama and Baixa, along many historical highlights, including the cathedral and the castle. Todos a bordo!
ARTS & CULTURE
Although it is located just outside of downtown Lisbon, the Tower of Belém on the Tagus River is a must-see attraction for visitors. Built as a fortress to defend the nearby Hieronymites monastery, the tower is a proud reminder of the discovery voyages of Vasco da Gama and the grandeur of the former Portuguese colonial empire.
