bbc2“Lisbon’s really quite special” he says.

“It’s a higgledy-piggledy place, with lots of funny little streets winding up and down the steep hills, and so many of the buildings are covered in beautiful old antique tiles”

“It’s right on the Tagus River, in a spectacular location, and I particularly like cities that are on the ocean. Lisbon is close to the Atlantic, and has a real feeling that you’re where stuff is happening, where boats are leaving. It’s not very prosperous, and it feels like you’re really somewhere where a lot of countries cross.”


If you live in UK don’t miss the program that BBC2 will broadcast tomorrow on BBC2 at 9 pm.

Shortly after the program will be available online.
