It’s one of the world’s oldest cities

…predating the likes of London, Rome and Paris by hundreds of years. You can feel its antiquity clinging to every corner, especially in the district of Alfama. This makes Lisbon a veritable banquet for history-hungry visitors. It was very nearly destroyed entirely by a massive earthquake in 1755, but was (thankfully) patched together and revived.

The city is a big fan of street art

At some point over the years, graffiti that was once considered an eyesore graduated to into intricate citywide murals that continue to inspire street art tours. One of the best spots to see it is Calçada da Glória, one of Lisbon’s steepest streets, but you’ll spot examples nearly everywhere you go.

A city of seven hills means vistas galore

That Lisbon, like Rome, was built across seven hills means nearly every street’s brow affords immensely satisfying views over the city as it slips down towards the river. None more so than from the Castelo São Jorge, reached by a climb through winding ancient streets of Lisbon’s oldest neighborhood.

bar

Nightlife in Lisbon is legendary

with the Portuguese capital boasting some fabulous bars, pubs and night clubs. Lisbon’s nightlife runs on a late schedule. Few arrive at a bar before midnight, at a club before 4, or go home until long after the sun has risen.
