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.

Lisbon City Reviews

    Small city full of life.

    Easy to move around, full of small restaurants and little shops. Sintra is very near to go visit. Easy to see and explore in a couple of days. Night life is awesome.

    Never Change, Lisboa!

    Lisbon is a destination that is definitely underrated. It still isn't as developed as more popular cities so it still has an air of authenticity and unexplored wonder. Filled with so many historic destinations (Belem/Sintra) and beautiful beaches, it is the perfect destination to explore the coast.

    Insider Tip:HOME LISBON HOSTEL is the ONLY place to stay at!! Mama's dinner will always win you over! three course meals for only 10EUROS. Heaven!

    Lisbon: Beautiful City and Great Adventure

    I had an absolutely amazing time visiting Lisbon, Portugal and nearby towns and cities. I was in Lisbon for two weeks, where I experienced the food, culture, and many beautiful sights. Lisbon is a multicultural city full of friendly people and I instantly felt at home. Everything is inexpensive, yet good quality, and I was constantly in awe of my ability to find delicious meals for very reasonable prices. I recommend this city to anyone looking to have a great experience in a beautiful place !

    Insider Tip:Skip taxis and tour buses when sight-seeing in Lisbon; the city is best seen on foot, even though it's built on many hills ! Not only will you get a daily dose of exercise, but you'll find hidden corners filled with adorable shops, amazing restaurants, and great spots to see the beautiful view of the city over the water.

    unlucky weather

    unluckily, it was raining the whole time. we still walked around a lot, but we also hung out in cafes to eat those tasty little things they have and drink coffee and play cards. loads of people say, lissabon is the most beautiful city they've been to - i can't really say that as we haven't seen a lot. and every place is not as nice when it's rainy...

    I was so well surprised, my favourite town in Europe. I can recommend nearly everything - Belem, Baixa-Chiado, the tram, Martim Moniz. You can reach everything by bus, tram or metro (very simple system) and the inhabitans are helpful as well.

    Insider Tip:On the top of the Tower of Belem you have a perfect view!
