Begin your adventure in Lisbon, one of the oldest cities in western Europe. Boasting a fascinating history, Lisbon has been at the hands of various rulers who have each left their mark on this vibrant city. As a result, an amalgamation of cultures and architectural styles has created several unique and distinct neighbourhoods.
