Sprawled across seven lofty hills, Lisbon’s cobbled neighbourhoods are decked out with artfully crumbling buildings and striking azulejo tiles. Almost completely destroyed by an 18th-century earthquake, the Portuguese capital has been rebuilt in a distinct Baroque and Rococo style that gives it a unique sense of style. Thanks to its creative spirit, fun-loving Lisboa knows how to delight, having stashed away luxe boutique hotels, hip hangouts and moreish custard tarts in its city-break arsenal.
Caught-that-morning fish, ruby ports and just-baked pastries: Portuguese cuisine is rooted in tradition, making the most of local produce and sun-drenched vineyards. Temple to seafood Cervejaria Ramiro rustles up all manner of prawns, cockles and clams. Tágide Wine and Tapas Bar is excellent for petiscos if you’re feeling peckish. Drop in at Cafe ‘A Ginjinha’ Rossio for a taste of the eponymous sweet cherry liqueur.
