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, Sun, Sea and Awesome People

    What an amazing city. Fish, try the fish. It's awesome and fresh and tastes amazing. There is so much nightlife here and you are so close to Sintra and the towns around the sea that you have no excuse to be bored. The people are wonderful and there are pasteis de natas (custard tarts) everywhere. Try them. The metro is so accessible and leads directly to the airport now! The views across the city are great too.

    Insider Tip:There is an old fishmarket (can't remember the name sadly) which is converted into loads of wee stalls selling food with a huge seating area in the middle. You can take your food and drinks from totally different places and dip in and out of Lisbon food culture. Go here. Ask about it. Try everything.

    Lisbon: The City That Will Make You Stay

    I ended up staying in Lisbon an extra day and a half within my six day Portuguese journey. So many cities claim there are endless things to do within the city, but in Lisbon - there truly are. From people watching at one of the many beautiful lookout points, learning how to surf after randomly going to the beach and being motivated to learn, hunting for treasure at the open market on Sunday to eating your weight in pasteis de nata, Lisbon has it all.

    Insider Tip:If at all possible, stay at the Lisbon Destination Hostel since they offer a variety of daily activities that allow you to get to know the city better and also have a great time! The Lisbon Destination Hostel has free walking tours every morning and afternoon that takes you literally all over the city. Please tip at least five euro to your tour guide since they do a great job, know so much and that is how they earn their living!

    Insider Tip:Just watch for pick pocketers but overall its a safe city to go around and explore.

    Belem and Alfama are must sees for anyone interested in culture and history. The architecture is amazing, The people are friendly. Lisbon doesn't have the overwhelming crowded feeling of a city. It just feels like home.

    The "City with Seven Hills" is a city with more than seven viewpoints.

    A lot of "Miradouros" are all around the city, providing a different views of the city. You don't have to go to the only great view point, because there must be a nice one in any neighbourhood. Both meat and fish are good to eat there. Buses, trams, and cable cars are all around the center of Lisbon. A full of attractions exist in the cities, such as Alfama, Bairro Alto, Baixa/Chiado, Belem, and St Jorge, and also around the cities, such as Cascais and Sintra. You stay will never be too long.
