Episode Summary

Lisbon, Portugal
Lisbon, Portugal -- it's Europe's smallest capital city, and one whose past is riddled with tales of adventure and trade. The city of Lisbon launched The Age of Discovery - its seaport is where famous explorers set sail in search of unknown lands and riches. Yet today it doesn't receive the attention that other European cities like Paris, Rome or even Madrid get. Travel expert Samantha Brown introduced us to present day Lisbon - a city still inspired by adventure and a sense of vision. Samantha's list of "must sees" - a local artist's studio that creates hand-made tiles as they did centuries ago, a visit to a famous monastery that serves up the sweetest pastries you've ever tasted, enjoying a cup of bica in a landmark Lisbon coffee house listening to the haunting sounds of "fado"- a music inspired with such emotion that no other nation has duplicated it and an overnight stay in a luxury hotel that was once a royal palace. Samantha shows us that although Lisbon is Europe's smallest capital it will leave a big impression on those who visit it!moreless
