10 Reasons to visit Lisbon
Lisbon: A Food Paradise
In Lisbon you will find every food that you can imagine. It's perfect if you are a person who likes trying out different kinds of food. Also many vegan restaurants can be found there. One of such perfect places is the Veganeats Caffe. There are also perfect market halls, like Time Out Market Lisboa and Mercado da Ribeira where you can find pretty much everything.
Stunning views all around the city
Lisbon has over 20 viewpoints to discover, so you will need at least 10 days to properly discover all of them. Our top 3 viewpoints are Castelo de São Jorge, Arco da Rua Augusta and Miradouro de São Pedro de Alcântara.
Miradouro de São Pedro de Alcântara
Lisbon has one of the best night life in Europe
I can't count all the bars I had visited, but I can promise you all of them were really good! I can recommend you to be part of a pub crawl, so you can discover many of them and get discounts.
The beach is really close
For a person who loves the beach this is a really important point. With a train you will need only 30 minutes to the closest beach. So you have a mix of a city trip and beach holiday.
Visit Christ the King
Christ the King is inspired by Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro. When you don't have the time and money to go to Rio de Janeiro, but want to see Christ the Redeemer, Christ the King is almost the perfect dupe. Additionally you get a stunning view of Lisbon and the Tejo river.
Try the popular Pastel de Belém
This point stands for itself. I can only say do it! It's one of the best pastries I ever tasted.
Go on a roundtrip with the Tram 28
The Tram will show you the whole center, which is considered a World Heritage by Unesco. Just take a seat and look outside of the window. The price is only 3€, which is quite affordable.
Just stroll around the city
For me the best way exploring a city is just to walk around and go in every street that looks interesting. The best districts for this are Alfama and Barrio Alto.
Finding street art
In Lisbon you will find many street art, just keep your eyes open or book a street art tour.
Go to a Fado concert
Listen to the melodies of Fado. I went to the Pavo Restaurant to see a concert and it was one of the highlights of my trip to Lisbon
