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.

    Legen - wait for it - dary !

    We went to Lisbon in the worst time of the year weather wise (end of February) and still it blew our minds. The beautiful city had so much to offer that the five days just flew by too fast and there was so much more that we still wanted to see.

    Insider Tip:Eat pastel de natas, drive around the city with the tram number 28 and get lost in the small neighborhoods up the hills. Also remember to drink a lot of cheap but oh so tasty portuguese wines while you're there and eat a lot of seafood!

    I have absolutely nothing bad to say about Lisbon! I love coming here, there is so much to see and do no matter what you are into. And it's so affordable! No outrageous European prices here.

    Great city with great food and drink

    Safe, fun city to enjoy a few days. Food is awesome and good day trips to Sintra or a few days to Porto!

    Insider Tip:Stay at Travellers House and the experience will be even better! Make sure you try all the great pastries available in the town.

    One of the best European cities

    After visiting, Lisbon is now one of my favourite cities I've been too. There's so much to do in this city, as well as nice places to visit like Sintra and Cascais which are both a short distance on a very cheap train journey away.

    Insider Tip:If you go to Sintra, go early in the morning so you have a whole day there as there are so many different things to see there. Also if you go to cascais to rent out the free bikes go early too as they quickly run out.
