Top Lisbon

LISBON HAS been chosen, along with 10 other cities worldwide, as a ‘must visit’ destination in 2009.

The capital was elected by travel guide group Lonely Planet for its Best in Travel 2009.

From five European cities chosen for the Top 10, only two European capitals, Warsaw and Lisbon, made the grade.

In the guide introduction, to be published this month, Lisbon is mentioned as a suggestion for anyone who wants to live the urban experience while it is described as a city that “combines the charm of the old world with a sense of youthful liveliness”.
