Lisbon, Portugal

Lisbon, Portugal.it's Europe's smallest capital city, and one whose past is riddled with tales of adventure and trade. The city of Lisbon launched The Age of Discovery - its seaport is where famous explorers set sail in search of unknown lands and riches. Yet today it doesn't receive the attention that other European cities like Paris, Rome or even Madrid get.Travel expert, Samantha Brown, will introduce us to present day Lisbon - a city still inspired by adventure and a sense of vision. Samantha's list of "must see's" - a local artist's studio that creates hand-made tiles as they did centuries ago stepping into a famous monastery that serves up the sweetest pastries you've ever tasted enjoying a cup of bica in a landmark Lisbon coffee house listening to the haunting sounds of "fado"- a music inspired with such emotion that no other nation has duplicated it an overnight stay in a luxury hotel that was once a royal palace and enjoying an authentic Portuguese dinner overlooking the scenic seaport. Samantha shows us that although Lisbon is Europe's smallest capital it will leave a big impression on those who visit it!
