Lisbon – 10 things not to miss



I will be doing a serie of posts on what to do in Lisbon.

Here’s a small list of my 10 favourite things:

  • Get lost in Alfama’s small streets and alleys
  • Enjoy Lisbon views from one of its gorgeous viewpoints while you sip from a Morito or a Caipirinha;
  • Stroll through the marvellous and trendy streets of Chiado;
  • Listen to Fado at Alfama neighbourhood;
  • Take a ride on Tram 28 that takes you through the old part of Lisbon, up and down three of the most beautiful and touristic hills;
  • Enjoy the quietness of the green quarter of Belém. This is your best spot to park the van. It’s also your THE spot for a Pastel de Nata, straight from the woven;
  • Shop and see at Feira da Ladra flee market, in Alfama neighbourhood;
  • Check the Bairro Alto, Bica and Cais do Sodré night scene;
  • Visit the Lisbon Castel, on top of Alfama hill, overlooking Lisbon and the Tagus river;
  • Take the boat from Belém to Trafaria and watch the sunset over the river; Enjoy a great dinner at the fisherman village of Trafaria;
