Lisbon Selected Top City for 2009

Admiring Lisbon

Last year it was the New York Times that named Lisbon a top destination for 2008. This year it was Lonely Planet to select Lisbon as one of the top 10 destinations for 2009 on its “Best in Travel” list.

It was announced yesterday that Lisbon, the “seductive” Iberian city, was selected for having “scored points” in the last few years, turning itself into a sophisticated destination, a gourmet paradise, where antiquity and charm meet a young population always willing to party.

The ”Santos Populares” feast every June is highlighted as the experience not to be missed in the Portuguese capital, now a destination for those who love culture and fun.

The other emerging top tourist cities for 2009 include Glasgow, Antwerp, Shanghai, and Zurich.
