The capital of Portugal, Lisbon is a lively city filled with restaurants, shops, buzzing nightlife, and historical sites.

Lisbon is the capital and the largest city of Portugal. Lisbon is one of the oldest cities in the world, and the oldest in Western Europe, predating other modern European capitals such as London, Paris and Rome by centuries. Julius Caesar made it a municipium called Felicitas Julia, adding to the name Olissipo. Ruled by a series of Germanic tribes from the 5th century, it was captured by the Moors in the 8th century.

Among all the metropolises in Europe, it has the warmest winters.

A picturesque city set on a hill, which offers a wide range of restaurants, cafes, pastry shops, monuments and nightclubs.

Among the many archaeological structures date back to the Roman era are its well-preserved aqueduct and cryptoporticus. Similarly, buildings from 1131 to 1255 still remain.
