EXPLORE LISBON, ONE OF THE WORLD'S OLDEST AND MOST COLOURFUL CITIES, DURING YOUR EUROPEAN CRUISE HOLIDAY.
Lisbon is one of the oldest cities in the world. Its magnificent harbour made it a logical trading port as far back as the Phoenicians, as well as a departure point for 15th century voyages sponsored by Prince Henry the Navigator, patron of Portuguese explorers. The city is rich in architecture, from Romanesque and Gothic to postmodern, and criss-crossed by monument-studded grand boulevards. Today it is seeking a place on the world stage by hosting, in addition to its own active cultural calendar, film festivals, art, fashion and design shows, book fairs, marathons, and rock concerts.Download An Explorer Guide +
