I have to say I truly connected with Lisbon! I found it pretty, cool, authentic, and absolutely charming. The people are relaxed, friendly, open, and curious to learn about other languages and cultures. The whole city has a calm yet eclectic vibe to it, and everyone seems to be connected to the city in a stable, sensible, and unpretentious way!
Besides being aesthetically pleasing to the eye, Lisbon has a lot to offer in the sense of beautiful architecture, water, greenery, and historical monuments. There is a lot to do for both the young and the old, and between a stroll through the old city, or a dip in the Atlantic, it can all be done within a day's pace.
