Authentic, charming and o so lovely, Lisbon had the typical Mediterranean cosy vibe. Every alley seems perfect for a holiday snapshot. Especially when one of the hundred-year-old trams passes by.
Not only the beautiful architecture, but also the steep streets complete this picture. Explore the city on foot and you don’t have to go to the gym anymore ;) Or decide to go for a cliché by taking tram 28, which gives you a tour trough the winding roads of Alfama without muscle pain.
In Lisbon you can’t only find art in the museums, but it’s also to discover as street art. RuaAgusta is the main and most famous shopping street. If you rather avoid large retail chains, dive into the side streets or wander around in Bairro Alto and Principe Real. You can find here many cafes and restaurants as well. Don’t forget to try the famous local specialty called Pasteis de Belem. If you want to pub or club a bit more, go to the party centre of Bairro Alto. Need some chill-time after all this adventure? Also sunbathing is possible, because there is a beach quite nearby!
