Lisbon or "Lisboa" in Portuguese is built on seven hills, like Rome or San Francisco.
Known for its romantic cobblestone streets in historic neighborhoods and its Atlantic beaches just a half-hour away, Lisbon is one of Europe's most popular and budget-friendly destinations.So learn more and start planning.
With a history that includes Roman rule, Moorish conquest, and Christian Crusaders, Lisbon's winding streets reveal a long and storied past, like Castelo de Sao Jorge built in the sixth century.
You will want to explore the neighborhood of Belem where Portuguese explorers once set sail and visit grand monuments such as the Belem Tower, Jeronimos Monastery, and the Monument to the Discoveries.
Lisbon is also a modern and sophisticated metropolis with fast-paced urban districts. With many of the city's best hotels, the elegant Avenida da Liberdade is a shopper's paradise featuring the finest international labels.
The Bairro Alto pulsates with funky design shops, quaint coffeehouses, and nightclubs that overflow into the streets. In the quieter but vibrant Chiado, you find a youthful atmosphere of art schools, theaters, trendy boutiques, and literary cafes.
The 2013 Rotary International Convention venue is the Lisbon International Fair and Atlantic Pavilion on the banks of the Tagus (Tejo River.)
