This was our first visit to Lisbon and in fact Portugal and we really liked it. Lovely city to visit and didn't really feel like a normal capital city, it had a more relaxed feel to the place and a fantastic blend between old and new styles.

There is plenty to see and do you just have to get out and about. We are seniors of below average fitness however we coped well with the hills. Buy the Lisboa ticket, worth it especially as we used our Expedia points to reduce the cost.
