A COMMON reply when I told people I’d be going to Europe for the summer was, ‘Make sure you go to Lisbon.’ The continent’s westernmost capital has developed a reputation as a culturally rich city with magnificent sights and a fun nightlife, without the hefty prices or overwhelming tourism of Barcelona or Madrid. Though the flights from Malaga aren’t at the most convenient times, Lisbon turned out to be an enjoyable escape from the Costa del Sol over a bank holiday weekend. And you gain an hour with the time change, so a flight departing at 07.00 arrives at 07.30 in Lisbon. I was lucky enough to stay with a local who took me to some great spots and skipped the overrated ones. The right weekend in Lisbon is at once entertaining and relaxing, enriching and invigorating and my five-centre hitlist covers the complete package.
