City Guide Lisbon, Portugal

Visiting Lisbon

With a population of just under 700,000, Lisbon is a pretty small capital but is big on culture and things to do. Situated on the River Tagus, an earthquake in 1755 did substantial damage to the city but much of the city’s medieval buildings are still standing. Locals are friendly and come from all over the world, influencing the city’s culture.

    Lovely Lisbon

    Lisbon is a very nice city to discover! Many sightseeings you won't miss! Very cool to do the Benfica stadium and museum tour! Also "Ocenario de Lisboa", one of the biggest aquariums in the world, very beautiful! The party in the city was something less then we'd expected, but it was still cool.

    Insider Tip:Ocenario de Lisboa!

    Amazing place

    I had very good time in Lisbon. I was exploring the city mostly on my own and fell in love with this place. Friendly people, beautiful places and good food. Definitely will be back because there is so much more to see and explore.

    Insider Tip:Try to walk as much as you can and dont be afraid to get lost in the city.Its so much fun.Try to be open for everything and you will meet new people and explore cool places. Try to learn some words in Portugese, local appreciate this.

    La siempre bella Lisboa!

    Una ciudad soñada, hermosa por donde se mire, con sus calles estrechas de colores y azulejos! Mi ciudad favorita durante mi viaje por Europa! La gente es muy amable y no es ridiculamente costosa como otras capitales europeas. Esta en mi top, ame Lisboa y sus alrededores.
