Spread across steep hillsides that overlook the Tagus River, Lisbon has captivated visitors for centuries. Windswept vistas reveal the city in all its beauty: Roman and Moorish ruins, white-domed cathedrals, grand plazas lined with sun-drenched cafes. The real delight of discovery though, is delving into the narrow cobblestone lanes.
As yellow trams clatter through tree-lined streets, locals stroll through lamplit old quarters, much as they’ve done for centuries. Gossip is exchanged over fresh bread and wine at tiny patio restaurants as fado singers perform in the background. In other parts of town, Lisbon reveals her youthful alter ego at bohemian bars and riverside clubs, late-night street parties and eye-catching boutiques selling all things classic and cutting-edge.
Just outside Lisbon, there’s more – Estoril Coast where the towns of Estoril and Cascais are bathed by the Atlantic Ocean and offer a vast range of leisure and sporting activities.

Should you visit the Belém quarter, where you can admire beautiful monuments, museums and gardens, take a break to taste one of the most popular specialties of Portuguese pastry.

Here, traditional Belém custards tarts are eaten straight out of the oven.

Due to the proximity of Lisbon with the sea, unspoiled beaches can be found on Lisbon´s south bank. After crossing the 25 April Bridge, we find Costa da Caparica region that delights its visitors. We recommend a ride on a small train along the coast.
If you want to venture into the exploration of the coast, find Sesimbra, small fishing village and further on Setúbal and Troia peninsula.
Estoril coast beaches can be divided in two groups: In the more urban areas where pedestrians have better access, idyllic beaches are set in delightful little coves surrounded by elegant houses and palaces in the style of the Riviera. Lined with bars and esplanades, the seaside promenades have lots of things going on and a cosmopolitan air about them.
The region has many other beautiful beaches, some a bit further away but still easily accessible, especially those protected by cliffs in the middle of the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park where the water is less calm but very rich in iodine.
