Lisbon, Portugal

Yellow trams swaying along the hilly narrow streets of the orange-roofed buildings, atmospheric cozy cafes serving delicious local cozidos and peixinhos, historic monuments placed along the shores of the Atlantic, and the sounds of Fado accompanying the composition - without a doubt, the glorious Portuguese capital surely deserves a spot on your bucket list. Just as the country in general, Lisbon is the proud homeland of the world's greatest explorers, like Vasco da Gama and Ferdinand Magellan, whose voyages began right from this edge of Europe. The city's extensive list of sights which are to be seen includes the Belem Tower, Commerce Square, and the Se Cathedral. And the unmissable day trip to nearby Sintra and the Pena Palace can surely highlight the Portuguese discovery of your own!...
