Portugal’s stylish capital, Lisbon, is the perfect place for relaxed exploration, with charming streets criss-crossing its squares and plazas. Traditional shops, restaurants, bars and cafés line the cobbled streets of Lisbon, welcoming you with rustic cooking, warming spirits and ornate, hand-made souvenirs.
With monasteries, castles and museums aplenty to explore, a few days in Lisbon is a wonderful addition to a river cruise in Portugal. One of the city’s most special experiences arrives as the sun begins to set. Lisbon locals have a taste for ginjinha, a liqueur containing infused ginja berries. Small hole-in-the-wall ‘A Ginjinha’ bars specialise in serving short measures of the drink for the locals who will slowly make their way around the city from one A Ginjinha to the next, sipping the sweet liqueur and taking in the grandeur of the city.
