The cobbled streets of the Portuguese capital are worn yet well loved, vibrant yet laid-back, melancholic, yet hopeful. These seemingly contradictory qualities create an atmosphere that is wholly unique to this riverside city.

Its historic yellow trams chug through its winding, narrow streets, while its tuk-tuks putter up and down its steep hills. Its mesmerizing geometric tiles mark the oldest corners of the city, and its ceramic souvenirs can found in every shop and market. Its fado music echoes from its restaurants and cafés, and its ornate arches, stunning churches, and spectacular viewpoints rival the best in the world.

This is Lisbon.
