t’s funny that Lisbon is one of the most laid back cities in Europe, because it’s got an awful lot to shout about. Perched over hills and with a rich cultural heritage, it’s both beautiful and fascinating. Tour Lisbon with a local to wander the cobbled streets and learn all about local life in this Portuguese gem. Plus, any visit to Lisbon is not complete without discovering the traditional Portuguese song – Fado.
