Travel destination - Lisabon
Lisbon is older than Rome and according to most estimates, around 4 centuries older. It is in fact the second oldest European capital after Athens, many historians believing that it was settled by the Phoenicians around 1200 B.C., and who used the excellent transport possibilities offered by the River Tagus. One of the theories for the origin of the name Lisbon is that it came from the term “Allis Ubbo” or “safe harbour” in Phoenician.
Need a combination of a citybreak and sun & surf? Lisbon is the perfect answer. The city has it all; narrow lanes, cosy bars and restaurants, good shopping, interesting sights, the possibility for great walks and wide sandy beaches just a short train ride from the city center. Can’t wait to go back for more 🙂
