Explore Lisbon on a Portugal Vacation – One of Europe’s Most Underrated Capitals; Robert Glazier; Goway

Portugal – Monastery of the Hieronymites and Tower of Belém in Lisbon

If you haven’t been to Lisbon before, I guarantee you will find this city will far exceed expectations, on your Portugal vacation.

When you are compiling your bucket list of major European capital cities to visit, Lisbon should definitely be on it!

Let’s start with a minor cautionary note. Lisbon was built on seven hills which make it a very attractive and scenic city, but this means that one often has to climb up reasonably steep streets if exploring on foot. However, this can be overcome as there is an excellent transportation system which, in many cases, can alleviate the climbing. There is an efficient metro (subway) system and good bus and streetcar services. I believe central Lisbon should, if possible, be explored on foot on a Portugal vacation, as there is so much to see almost on every street and around each corner.

In San Francisco, you have cable cars. In London, you have red double-decker buses.
