Lisbon, Portugal

One of Europe’s oldest and most photogenic capitals, Lisbon features brilliant colors, fabulous shopping and friendly locals. Perhaps the best way to get to know the city is from wandering the alleyways, cobbled streets and hidden squares of its historic Alfama district. Other iconic shooting locations include Belém Tower, Castelo de São Jorge, Rossio Square and Praça do Comércio in Baixa. Just outside of Lisbon is the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Sintra; known for its numerous palaces and castles. And then of course there’s the beautiful Lisbon coast that seemingly has a photo opportunity around each bend in the road.
