Summer in Lisbon is usually pleasantly warm; seldom does Portugal‘s capital swelter. From this vantage point along the Calçada do Duque, a prime tourist zone, clear skies and colorful bunting render Lisbon especially welcoming. Think about a short Lisbon break for a few minutes: good strong coffee and egg tarts for breakfast; grilled sardines and a nice vinho verde for lunch; and an evening stroll before a leisurely dinner.
