Red hot news
Great minds fly alike
Delta Air Lines has now moved a number of routes into London Heathrow Terminal 3, to join TAP Portugal, making it an even easier, more streamlined experience for passengers. Delta’s flights to New York JFK and Boston, as well as the new London to Seattle flights, now all depart from T3.* Since the co-location at T3 has been so successful, TAP Portugal are now also beginning the move to co-locate with Delta at New York's JFK. Both airlines are already in Terminal 4, so TAP Portugal are moving their check in desks to join Delta. And as both airlines are co-located on both sides of the Atlantic, passengers can receive a more convenient and seamless experience when connecting onwards to other US destinations.

... Sounds pretty promising. After all, the Portuguese capital is considered the ideal destination for a city break, mixing old and new in equal measure.
Styles, cultures and different eras. Lisbon can be modern and sophisticated, but she also knows how to be traditional and demure. How is that possible? Book your flight and...
Take a stroll along the river bank, hand-in-hand with history
Enjoy the city's delightful weather. Nip down to Belém and explore the monuments to the Discoveries by the sparkling Tagus. But there are other unique places such as Terreiro do Paço, one of Europe's largest squares, and Cais do Sodré. Or even Portas do Sol in Alfama, where the view will take your breath away!
Enjoy a traditional Lisbon evening
After a day walking the picturesque cobbled streets and being stunned by the beauty of S. Jorge Castle, it's time to relax and let your hair down. Chiado and Bairro Alto are the places to be for avant-garde culture and a night out on the town. There's a bit of everything: traditional fado houses, bars, clubs and live music.

Savour that unique taste of Port
The city's baroque masterpiece is Clérigos Tower, which is there to be admired from top to bottom. It's worth climbing the 240 steps to be rewarded with a panoramic view of the River Douro. The Serralves museum and its garden are more modern but equally irresistible. And there are always the port lodges where you can taste the wine and learn about its history.
Have fun to the sound of great music
After savouring a traditional francesinha, it's time to try out Porto's exciting nightlife. The riverside Ribeira area and Foz are both points of call. Casa da Música is ideal for fans of more eclectic music. The building and its auditoriums are a treasure of modern architecture.

From all perspectives
So many contrasts! From the immense coast to the vastness of the interior; from rich fauna and flora to the northeastern dunes; the diversity of faiths and the social contrasts. A country whose capital is the idealist Brasília, the largest city Sao Paulo and the most emblematic one Rio, can only be unique.
On the ‘sambódromo’ or at the beach
