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 – My Favourite City

    Lisbon is, in my opinion, the most enjoyable of all of Europe's old capitals. It's more modern than most and certainly cheaper. It's sort of run down, but in an attractive way – where else can you go and find every single sidewalk and building tiled? The views are amazing, especially because there are so many hills, and the food is great. Be sure to catch dinner and a few beers in the Bairro Alto and Chiado, the best nightlife spot on the continent.

    Insider Tip:'Buy the ticket. Take the ride.'

    I don't like it

    Nothing genuine to find in the city. Restaurants are low quality and VERY expensive. I wish I did not even step on it.

    Insider Tip:Do not eat in the touristic restaurants, lowest quality food ever. Find some local one away from the center.

    Lisbon - city of ancient and modern

    Lisbon is beautiful. But personally, I prefer to go to Sintra, a small city near Lisbon. It's amazing, and I bought some porto wines there

    Lisbon for a few nights

    Lisbon is an amazing city. Cheaper than most with amazing sight seeing, nightlife, weather, people, and places to stay. So much opportunity to do touristy things like take a hop on hop off tour and sight see or spend the day on a beautiful and clean beach. Lisbon was my favorite place to stay on our tour of France, Spain, Portugal and Italy.

    Insider Tip:Say Obrigado to give thanks (for males to say) and Obrigada for women!

    Vacances géniales

    Wonderful city, safe, open minded, with a mix of portuguese and other cultures, nightlife takes place on the street bars are very cheap. One negative point: clubs are not as cool as bars.
