Must-See Attractions of Lisbon (1) 1

While researching our trip to Lisbon, I realized that the capital of Portugal, although one of the oldest and prettiest cities in Europe, is underestimated. If Paris, Rome or London are always on top of travel rankings, Lisbon is not that popular and honestly, I find this unfair, as it is charming, full of historic spots, close to the ocean and the sunniest capital city of Europe. What else could you ask from a city? Short history The city built on seven hills is one of the oldest cities in the world (older than Rome) and has a very rich […]
