Lisbon

Some say it is the most beautiful city in Europe. Walking Lisbon’s cobbled streets is an attraction in itself. Eclectic art and design, Gothic and Manuelinestyle architecture, terraced gardens, historic trams, remodelled palaces, and so much more to see. Take time to discover the city’s iconic white buildings with terracotta rooftops, the awe-inspiring grand monument Padrão dos Descobrimentos, and Alfama, the oldest neighbourhood in Lisbon. What would you do with your 12 hours?

Dish of the Day

Bacalhau à Brás, Pastel de nata & Bolinho de bacalhau

You could easily spend 12 hours in Lisbon sampling fresh local dishes. Portugal has a rich tapestry of food and no visit is complete without eating petiscos, small and tasty snacks served in all local bars.

We recommend the ones in Santa Antonio de Alfama’s (Beco de Sãu Miguel 7) for true Lisbon authenticity. Find it in the high cobbled hills of Alfama, it is well worth the ascent. Pasta del Nata and fresh sardines from Floresta Das Escadinhas (Rue de Santa Justa 3) are a must to make any Lisbon visit. Or better yet, buy them along the street if you are lucky enough to be there during the Festo de Santo Antonio.
