We will be flying into and out of Lisbon and have about 7 days... What do you reccomend we see, eat and experience while in Portugal?
We love to experience the culture of the city- so walking tours or historical sites. I would like to spend time relaxing on a beach and would love to try some great food!
Lisbon is a great city with lots to see and do. It's very walkable, albeit hilly! Be sure to see the Alfama region with its wonderful views of the city and checkout a Fadò club. Visit Chiado and Bairro Alto There are plenty of options for walking tours of the city or just take Tram 28 which stops at all of the important places that you'll want to visit. (watch out for pickpockets on the tram) Lisbon is a cracking city for nightlife too (Bairro Alto is the most lively area after dark) Take Tram 15 to Belém to see Jerónimos Monastery Torre de Belém Worthwhile day trips from Lisbon by train, or car include Sintra Cascais or some of the beautiful beaches on the Lisbon coast.Lisbon is a very cosmopolitan city with lots of great restaurants and wine bars, whether you want to eat formally or casually. We liked The Old Pharmacy for lovely wine and A Cevicheria for great fish. LA PAPARRUCHA is good for steak with a view. Restauradores is a street with lots of restaurants, some good, some not, but we loved Bonjardim for great piri piri chicken.
