Less famous and much more discreet than the others capitals of Europe, Lisbon is a very special city. The feeling that you experience is that of living, at the same time, in several epochs. Perhaps because of its old façades, of its narrow and sloping pavements, of its houses, its places and streets decorated with old earthenware, or of its tireless wooden trams, merging into a dynamic, lively and exciting city. In Lisbon, present and past cohabit in a very particular harmony. It is a pleasure to go for a walk in Lisbon! The view from the top of the St George castle is unforgettable. Then to go down the labyrinth-district of the Alfama to immerse yourself in the Arabian past of the city. To visit the tower of Belem and the Hieronymite Monastery, on the river bank. To stroll on the Trade Place, old port and one of most beautiful and symbolic places of the city. To walk in its undulating and magical streets, to have then a break to taste its delicious gastronomy and to savour a glass of fresh green wine. To study Portuguese in Lisbon is an enchantress experience: there is so much to discover, to learn and to live through in this city. Its seven hills, its honey colour, its shimmer on the Tajo, the echo of its fados, its smells... you thinks of Pessoa and you know that Lisbon will remain engraved forever on your memory.
