At a Glance

Bom dia, Lisboa. (Good morning, Lisbon)! It is sunrise in Portugal’s capital city, and the day’s discoveries await. A six-story-high cat burglar slinks along a building — street art is everywhere! Sea otters and penguins frolic at the Oceanarium. The lilting strains of fado — Portuguese song — waft out of a café. During an educational adventure amid terra cotta-roofed homes and cobbled streets in the “City of Seven Hills,” relish your grandchild’s delightful discoveries at every turn, from meeting a prized Lusitano horse to joining forces with new friends in a mystery-filled treasure hunt.
