The capital of Portugal is an up-and-coming destination for those looking to explore old-school European architecture, classic pathways, and an attractive city design. Lisbon has several historical sites that definitely garner a visit if you're in the city. While Lisbon is quite walkable and even bike-friendly, visiting all the places in one day is impossible, especially on foot.
So take the famous number 28 tram, which takes you around all the significant spots in the city as you sit back and take in the stunning views. While the old wooden benches may be a little uncomfortable, the real fun lies in the experience. Most of these trams are still running on their original parts, so sitting in a tram that is decades old will be a thrilling event.
Not to mention the views of the grand Basílica da Estrela, the grand Assembleia da República, the ancient Se Cathedral, and the Baroque-styled Santo António Church will distract you from any discomfort you may feel at the hands of the hard benches.
Lisbon is the perfect retreat for the beach bum traveller due to its proximity to the Atlantic. Whether you want to lounge on a beach and sunbathe or want to take a dip in the warm surfy waters, head to Praia de Carcavelos, which is often considered the most spectacular beach in Lisbon, or Tamariz for its closeness to the fishing port of Cascais. Take a trip to Lisbon so you can enjoy both the buzz of glorious city life with the Lisbon nightclubs and relax and unwind during the daytime on the glittering white sands.

A hidden gem. It was created several hundred years ago, by a King of Portugal at the time of the Discoveries. The story goes that this King wanted one of every type of plant in the world, and although that's unlikely, there is a huge collection dating back by three or four centuries which is worth checking out. And there's something quite eerie about seeing plants or huge trees from completely different climates growing next to each other in apparent harmony. A great place to take a picnic - this green oasis is completely surrounded by city but even the city sounds filter out.
