Holidays at the Lisbon camping park
Canvas Holidays provides a chance for a holiday in a campsite a short distance from Portugal's main city. It means you can enjoy the Costa da Caparica beaches and the camping park’s facilities as well as visiting Lisbon and its surrounding area at your leisure. Your stay will echo to the fado, a traditional song of Portugal, and you should be sure to try out the region’s culinary specialities.
In Lisbon, you can wander through the little streets in the historical Alfama and Rossio neighbourhoods, well-known for their houses with hand-painted blue ceramic decoration. In the evening, you can head for the Bairro Alto district to sample Lisbon's nightlife.
