LISBON CITY GUIDE

I am a sailing and dancing lover from Lisboa, Portugal. I can't live away from the sea and I hate to be bored. I have lived in Lisoboa / Lisbon for 2o years.

It is the best city in the world with one of the most difficult people to deal with. Everything is hard when it comes to work and make stuff happen. Everything is easy breezy when it comes to party and have fun.

What represents the city is definitely Sun, beaches, old, beer, fish, sea food, fun.

Best Time To Visit

Summer if you like to sweat a lot. May and June are the best to walk around and still have dry armpits.

Places I Like

Santa Maria de Belém

It is a civil parish of the municipality of Lisbon, in central Portugal

Cidade Baixa

Located between Rossio and Praça do Comercio, this section is a shopper’s paradise with several pedestrian streets.

Chiado

Another great shopping district.

Castelo S.Jorge

St. George’s Castle On top of the highest hill in Lisbon sits St. George’s Castle. The area is called the Alfama.

Miradouros

Wonderful sights delight walkers at every turn in this culturally rich and charming part of Lisbon, which through its architecture reminds visitors of its Visigothic roots, Arabic influence and fishing port heritage.

Ways To Travel Around

You can take the Bus, Trolleys or Walk. Its a great way to see the city.

Additional Tips

Ask old people for historical things. They know so many things you would never find on a guide. Make local friends (with a couple of beers, which will cost you 4 bucks it’s pretty easy to make friends in Lisboa), you’ll end up visiting places you’ll never find on your own.
