Lisbon

29 Mar

If you ever travel to Lisbon, don’t forget to

  • stroll through the old quarters of Alfama, Castelo and Mouraria
  • watch out for great street art
  • eat Pastéis de Nata at Confeitaria dos Pastéis de Belém in Belém
  • follow the cats
  • go treasure hunting at Feira da Ladra
  • visit the peacocks at Castelo Sao Jorge and enjoy the view of the city from up there
  • hang out with the fishermen
  • have a shoeshine in the streets of Baixa and Chiado
  • eat Portuguese cheese and seafood
  • go dancing at Bar Anos 60 – local bands play there almost every night, the people are great and very warm
  • listen to the river Tejo
  • take the tram 28 to the old cemetery – but only if you’re not afraid of ghosts
  • spend some time in one of the botanical gardens
  • admire the azulejos
  • go to Esquina de Alfama to listen to some great Fado musicians and singers
  • ENJOY!
