Things to do here

Old trams, castles perched on hills, steep narrow streets full of character, super museums, and lots of great restaurants, Portugal’s capital has a charm all its own. Lisbon is also an excellent gateway to explore the charms of the Alentejo, the rural wine growing region that remains one of the country’s least developed but most enjoyable destinations.
