Why It's Worth It

Lisbon’s laid-back charm, moderate climate with nearby beaches and castles, and its big, warm personality make you want to stay forever. The city is not yet as crowded as other European capitals and offers the perfect balance between modern and traditional. Cool, fun, creative, and affordable, the best way to explore Lisbon is on foot. Get lost in the many colorful neighborhoods and find your better self between the river Tagus and the Atlantic sea with traditional restaurants, modern new museums (MAAT), and a growing number of top restaurants (Feitoria and Belcanto) and chic wine bars (JNcQuoi) to enjoy. —Mariette Du Toit Helmbold
