Built on seven hills, Lisbon has experienced a renaissance in recent years, making it the cultural star of Portugal.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Museu Calouste Gulbenkian and Zazule. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Castelo dos Mouros and Cabo da Roca. And it doesn't end there: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Mosteiro dos Jeronimos, step into the grandiose world of Castelo de S. Jorge, wander the streets of Avenida da Liberdade, and stop by Alfama.

To see where to stay, maps, and other tourist information, read Lisbon online tour itinerary builder.

Recife, Brazil to Lisbon is an approximately 10.5-hour flight. The time zone changes from Brasilia Standard Time (BRT) to Western European Standard Time (WET), which is usually a 3 hour difference. Traveling from Recife in May, expect Lisbon to be a bit cooler, temps between °C and °C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 17th (Fri) so you can travel to London.

Vibrant and noisy, London is one of the world’s leading cities, an international capital of culture, education, fashion, music, finance, trade, and politics.
Step off the beaten path and head to North Laine and Gustamps. Get some cultural insight at The British Museum and Victoria and Albert Museum. Change things up with a short trip to The Lanes in Brighton (about 1h 25 min away). There's still lots to do: admire the masterpieces at National Gallery, learn more about the world around you at Natural History Museum, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Paul's Cathedral, and steep yourself in history at Westminster Abbey.

To find maps, photos, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read London day trip planning site.

Getting from Lisbon to London by flight takes about 6 hours. Other options: take a train; or do a combination of bus and train. Prepare for a bit cooler weather when traveling from Lisbon in May: high temperatures in London hover around °C and lows are around °C. On the 21st (Tue), you'll have the morning to explore before heading back home.
