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.

    Love in Lisbon

    Lisbon takes you back in time once you walk the stony streets and alleys feel the heat on your back, hear the churches bells, dip in the ocean you leave your residue part of your consciousness.

    Take your time

    Lisbon is a huge city with vast options. Take your time, when exploring it! Don't miss out of Fado & fish. Also check out the different beaches and a trip to the neighbouring city of Sintra, also called the fairytale town. I planned to stay for three days, but added another day while being there.

    Insider Tip:During 3 days each year, the underground caves are opened for visitors. Go very early, or you'll wait forever in the queue. If you don't manage to get in, go to the local H&M store. It has a glass floor that allows glimpses down to the caverns. ;) Check out for travel passes to save money, and also for combi tickets for the museums when going to Sintra.
