Lisbon Overview

Built on the seven hills, on the place where the River Tagus meets the Atlantic ocean, Lisbon is one of the most fascinating cities in Europe and is often considered a hidden gem. Lisbon, the capital of Portugal, is situated in a relatively small area of 84.6 square kilometers, at the same latitude as Washington D. C. (it is the closest European capital to the US) and has 564,657 inhabitants (more than 3 million inhabitants live around the city). Despite not being Mediterranean city (whole Portuguese coast is Atlantic), Lisbon enjoys a warm, Mediterranean climate with mild winters and very warm summers.

Lisabon is a fantastic city especially for lovers of very fresh fish and sea food. I was in many countries of the world but Lisabon in one of the best cities for a fish gastronomy. If you like sightseeing it is the best to stay in a hotel right downtown, near Praça da Figueira (Square of the Fig Tree) or Rossi square. From these places easily you can go by tram no. 15 to Belem to see the Belem Tower and Jerónimos Monastery (15 min. journey) or to go by bus no. 737 up to the St. George Castle (you can go up also by a ricksha or taxi, taxi isn´t expensive). These three sights are amazing and you should see them first. If you are intetested in the sea world then for sure visit Oceanarium. It is a huge building so you must be fresh to see all (you can go there by metro). In the evening it is a great experience to go to one of the restaurants with live Fado (traditional, folk) music. The biggest concentration of these restaurants is in the quarter Alfama. But don´t forget to make a reservation of a table a few days in advance. Especially on Saturday good restaurants are always fully booked. I can highly recommend the smaller family restaurant St. Fado de Alfama (the cook Ana Marina is also a singer, after cooking she is singing :-)).

A beautiful ancient city, strolling in autumn is very pleasant because weather very nice and less touristy. During my stay I did the city tour with a guide that allows to understand the history of the city, its architecture and custom. The restaurants are very good in the city and all offer fresh fish in the menu. Very nice city and very good food.

I had a great time in Lisbon last summer. Visited nearly every museum on the city (you can obtain a ticket which includes visiting many of them paying an inexpensive price). But I can strongly affirm that the architecture and the way the city is designed is more enjoyable. The streets inspire a sense of charm that makes you want to continue walking. I highly recommend eating fish on the other side of the river (not where the city centre is located). If you want to go out at night, Urban Beach will delight you.
