Cruising to Lisbon, Portugal

Lisbon's undulating landscape is set across seven hills, which rise and fall like the waves of the Atlantic Ocean as it laps against the city's shoreline. Because of this, the Portuguese capital is defined as much by its topography and surroundings as it is by its rich heritage and vibrant way of life.

Having acted as the major point of entry and exit to Western Europe for several hundred years, the city has developed a truly global culture throughout its lifetime, and is coloured by a mixture of European, African and Middle Eastern influences.

A great place to head to if you want to learn more about the city and its history is Belem, with this neighbourhood being renowned for its vast array of significant monuments, such as the Jeronimos Monastery and the Belem Discovery Centre.

Elsewhere, there are plenty of fantastic museums and art galleries to discover all across Lisbon, with the likes of the Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga being among the most intriguing. If you've only got a short time to explore the city then make sure you hop aboard the famous Number 28 Tram, which passes by all of Lisbon's major sites.
