Oct 04    Lisbon, Portugal    Depart: 5:00PM
Lisbon, Portugal

Portugal’s capital Lisbon comes alive with a rich history seen in every nook and cranny of the city. From the resting place of famous explorer Vasco de Gama at Jeronimos Monastery to the impressive turrets of São Jorge Castle dating all the way back to second century B.C.E., Lisbon offers a deep dive into the past to satiate the most curious travelers.

While Western Europe’s oldest city boasts an array of Baroque and Neoclassical architecture, that does not mean it has remained stuck in the past. On the contrary, the colorful culture and vibrant life that runs throughout the city’s restaurants, shops, and rooftop bars make it buzz with infectious energy. Taking a tuk tuk through its hard to reach passages allows you to experience Lisbon as the locals do.

Atop of Lisbon’s seven hills you get an incomparable bird’s eye view. The sprawl of historical and modern complexes expands all the way to the waterfronts of where the Atlantic Ocean and River Tagus meet. The mountains lie so far in the distance it gives the impression that this city has no end.

Whether you dig into the local Portuguese favorite dish, bacalhau, or snack on a pastéis de Nata, an egg custard pastry that has been enjoyed for centuries, Lisbon delivers flavors that will send your palette to a whole new world. If you stop off in the streets of Bairro Alto, you can pop into a café for pastries, coffee, and good conversation with the locals.

The island’s capital and biggest town, Funchal, offers the curious adventurer a never-ending supply of historical sites, captivating architecture, and expansive views to broaden one’s horizons.

Madeira lies just off the coast of Africa as part of an autonomous Portuguese archipelago in the north Atlantic Ocean. With a mild, subtropical climate throughout, the island is home to some of the most stunning flora and fauna around the world.

If ever Eden existed, the Monte Palace Tropical Gardens come rather close. With verdant shrubbery all around, the soothing sounds of flowing water, and structural designs inspired by various cultures, it invokes a sense of calm and wonder that cannot compare.

Hop in an elevated cable car and ascend the green slopes up to Monte for incredible sky-high views. As you rise to the top of the slopes you see a sprawling, lively city. Bustling with energy from the busy highways to the people making their way to work or their homes, it’s easy to get caught up in its intoxicating vibes.
