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

  • 90%


    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.

    I liked more the sorroundings, like Cascais and Sintra, the city isn't really beautifull, the were a lot of construction and to many people!

    Lisbon on a weekend

    Did a walking tour followed by a walk up to the highest point in Lisbon and a night of Fado. The next day, went to Sintra and the west-most point in continental Europe. I'm personally a more active traveler and this was a great trip.

    Insider Tip:At Sintra, if you're not as interested in museums and how the rich live, spend more time at Quinta de la Regaleira (spelling?). The Pena Palace is nice but not very exciting. Cabe de Roca is about an hour away from downtown Sintra. Do not listen to anyone who says it is just 15 minutes away.

    Lisbon is a great place to stay in europe. There is the river and also the city with a lot of places to explore. The public transport is easy to take and not to expensive. Here are a lot of young people and it´s very hip. The portuguese are openmindet and you will feel like home !

    Insider Tip:My personal tip is the Bairro Alto, the Pink-street and the Erasmus Corner. Here is the nightlife !

    Good nightlife, but Porto is prettier.

    The castle by the sea is worth a visit. Main squares are gigantic. I went during the Vogue Fashion Night Out and it was so cool! Definitely seems like a great party place. The city itself is kind of shabby though.

    Insider Tip:Definitely see/hear Fado while you are here. Just make sure you go with someone because I was followed by some guy and the streets there are very small and mazelike. Not recommended if you are a solo female.
