The capital city of Portugal, Lisbon is a vibrant city with beautiful buildings and beaches. The sun shines for 290 days a year, and the temperature rarely drops below 15 degrees! Lisbon is also home to one of the largest youth rugby festivals in Europe and has a number of clubs in the city that are very welcoming to English teams, making it a wonderful destination for a rugby tour.
Lisbon is a small but charming city and is best known for its rolling hills, pastel houses and incredible beaches. It has been influenced by many different cultures and is full of history - The Alfama Quarter retains its Medieval feel. Visitors can stroll through narrow streets, enjoy a scenic ride on antique streetcars or take a steep ride up to Bairro Alto, a street elevator over 100 years old.
Outside of the city there is a wide variety of landscapes with beaches, natural parks and cultural routes, you will never run out of things to do.
