Lisbon Holidays

Read more about Lisbon

Soak up the sun, appreciate the culture and experience copious amounts of delicious cuisine in Portugal’s capital city. Spend your days wandering through the rustic city streets or take a trip to one of the sandy beaches on the coast. Whether you’re seeking a sun-soaked city break, party holiday or family adventure, Lisbon has everything you need for the ideal getaway.

Beaches
Although Lisbon is known as Portugal’s sunny capital city, relaxing by the sea is easy. Take a walk along the coast in the south of the city, or head over to one of the local beaches to enjoy the Portuguese sand. Nearby beaches include Costa da Caparica, Praia de Carcavelos and Praia da Conceição, all of which are only 30-45 minutes’ bus ride from Lisbon centre.

Food & Drink
Traditional Portuguese food may consist of fowl sausage, seafood and fancy egg custards, but Lisbon’s food and drink scene ventures well beyond the local dishes. Introduce exciting new flavours to your taste buds, or go back to the comfort food you love, at any of the city’s countless restaurants that are waiting to welcome you in.

Culture
A bustling city with a laid-back Mediterranean atmosphere, Lisbon provides the perfect mix of city buzz and taking it easy, all with beautiful historic architecture to admire along the way.

Nightlife
Filled with funky décor and even funkier music, Lisbon’s super clubs are perfect for dancing the night away. Alternatively, you can experience lively atmospheres whilst sipping ice-cold refreshments in the district of Bairro Alto; somewhere that offers bar after bar along the small cobbled streets.
