On arrival at Lisbon Portela Airport in Portugal, I opted to take the metro rather than join the long line of tired travellers waiting for taxis.
It possibly wasn’t the best decision, as the queue of visitors struggling to operate the ticket machines in an unfamiliar language probably moved just as slowly! But however lengthy the arrival process is, it won’t take you long to fall under Lisbon’s spell. Exploring the history and culture of the Portuguese capital (Western Europe’s oldest capital city) is a wonderful experience.
This Lisbon city guide is packed with ideas for things to see and do. Enjoy your visit.
