Lisbon Pocket Guide

Images Of Lisbon

Built on seven hills, Lisbon is quickly becoming one of Europe's most popular capitals. Small enough to explore in a day but with enough going on to keep you here for a week, it also boasts one of the continent's most pleasurable climates. Plan your visit here and take one of the old yellow trams past the city's sights, crunch into a sweet custard pie, enjoy the breathtaking vistas, and treat your hedonistic tendencies to the countless bars in one of the world's craziest districts, the Bairro Alto.

    Fun and culture

    I had great expectations of Lisbon after reading so much about it and I wasn't disappointed. It is beautiful city, full of charm and amazing food. Although it rained a lot, I was able to see places such as Baixa and Belém. If you visit Lisbon you should definitely go there and explore the several monuments (really cheap) as well as the heavenly tasting custard tarts.

    Beautiful city, friendly people, nice places

    Lisbon is a very good city to travel to. It has so many historical places, castles, you can spend many days there and not see everything. Also, there are several cities near it that are worth the trip, such as Sintra.

    Insider Tip:Go to Sintra! Its castles and palaces are magical. With a good guide you can actually relive what happened in that time and its an amazing experience. Bad thing: many people selling drugs around town, but if you just ignore them they leave you alone.

    Lisboa is one of my favorite places in Europe so far. It reminds me so much of San Francisco but with its Portuguese and Medieval edge. The food and pastries are delicious and exploring the city is rather easy either by metro, tram or simply walking.

    Insider Tip:The castle has some amazing views of the city. I would also recommend visiting the museums on a Sunday since most are free except for the modern art museum by the monastery is great and always free. I would walk along the bay
