Day By Day

Day 1 - Lisbon, Portugal


Lisbon boasts the Jerónimos Monastery and Belem Tower, stunning works that introduced Manueline architecture to the world.

The labyrinthine streets of Lisbon's Arab-flavored Alfama District carry echoes of 16th-century navigators who sailed in the Age of Discovery.
