Lisbon has reawakened and is now one of Europe’s coolest city break destinations. The words “new” and “cool” hadn’t been associated with the Portuguese capital since the 16th century, when it ruled over the world’s first global empire, extending from Brazil to India. Vasco da Gama’s expedition to the East brought it cultures and a touch of the exotic that Europe had never seen before spices (cinnamon, pepper, ginger), foods (potatoes, pineapples, tea) and animals such as the elephant and rhinoceros that paraded by the city’s waterfront.
