One of the oldest cities in the world, the sun-kissed coastal capital of Portugal, Lisbon, lies between the azure blue waves of the Atlantic ocean and the magic of its legend-shrouded Seven Hills. Once a stop-off on the road for Greek hero, Odysseus, its Mediterranean climate and myriad mix of Roman, Moorish and late-Gothic heritage make it a rustic-luxe stop off perfect for any time of the year.

Known as Puerto Sereno or ‘Serene Port’, Lisbon’s simple maritime charm and peaceful ramble of historic bairros or neighbourhoods make it the perfect place to sample some true pastel de nata, tuck in to a plate of garlicky ameijoas (clams) and enjoy its famous light – when the sun sets upon the sea, the city glows gold.

Go in search of classic, colourful azulejo tiles, wander past white domed cathedrals, slip in to the soft sand of the beach and take in the view from the loftiest of the surrounding hills. From any angle, Lisbon is undeniably a city of spectacular panoramas.
