    FRIENDLY STAFF, MODERN DESIGN, WELL PLACED

    by

    I had a four day stay at the Double Tree Hilton Fontana Park Hotel in Lisboa. I have come to like th Hilton Brand and there was no disappointment at this one. The staff at the Front Desk were very accommodating as well as the staff at the Breakfast room. There is a fitness room and the wifi is free. two minutes walk to Saldanha shopping, and two metro stations are nearby as well as bus stops. Less than ten minutes walk to Maquis de Pombal square.
    All in all a very satisfying stay and to boot, excellent value for money

How long in Lisbon?

by littlelawyer

Hi everyone. I'd like to go to Portugal in early April. How long should I spend in Lisbon (on my first visit) and are there any trips I can do from the capital? Thank you! L

Re: How long in Lisbon?

There is plenty to see and do in Lisbon so it is really more a question of how many days have you got to explore it in?
However it is a very easy city to get around both on foot and by the excellent public transport system. If you can spend 3 full days in the city and 2 more to visit two of the most popular local towns Sintra - with its castle and palace, and Cascais with its harbour and beautiful architecture set amidst lovely old streets you would cover it well.
Both Sintra and Cascais are easy to get to using public transport - which is efficient and economical. Take a look at the relevant VT travel guides for more information about transport, things to do and see in the area. I am sure you will enjoy it and want to go back - as I do!

I would say 3-4 days to see Lisbon and then daytrips to places like Sintra, Obidos, Batalha and Evora.

You must visit Villa Nova de Milfontes. It is one of the best destinations for beach vacation and at around three hours drive from Lisbon. It is a fishing village with stunning beaches. If you have only few days to spend in Lisbon then it is best to hire a car to visit various attractions in and around Lisbon. For car rental you may check out the services of lisboncars.com. Their services are quite economical.

Re: How long in Lisbon?

All depends on how much time you got overall

3-4 days exclusively in Lisbon would be a good start to cover for you the main attractions of this wonderful city

Tho if your trip to Portugal would be limited to a week to 10 days, then it would make sense to use Lisbon as a base to explore the many fascinating places nearby for day trips such as already mentioned Sintra, Cascais which are standard must-see for most tourists/visitors.

Yet there are equally great towns/villages easily reached within a hour to two hours of easy/accessible transport such as the Roman city of Evora, the beautiful fishing village of Sesimbra, the magnificent natural reserve of Arrabida Peninsula, the colossal monument of Mafra which isn't far from Sintra, the charming beach town of Ericiera and so much more...all doable as a full day excursion.

Solodancer,

Can you take a train to places beyond Sintra? Have you been to Porto. Is is worth the 3-4 hr train trip?

Travel Tips for Lisbon

Post boxes

by berenices

In places around the city, you can find these red post or mail drop boxes. There are the smaller versions, but only for domestic mails. These bigger ones marked CORREIOS, can be for various types of mails. On one side can be found a panel where postage stamps can be bought. There are different types of stamps, just press the button for what you need -- one is for domestic speed mail (correio azul), another is for domestic normal (verde), and another is for international (international). The machine gives change, and it has instructions in English as well.

With the mail service ubiquitous and accessible through this, you avoid the long queues and usually slow service in post offices. In the Restauradores area and other touristic places, these boxes are situated in conspicuous areas.

Great for dropping those postcards in with no hassle or pain!

Tiles, tiles and more tiles

by TheWanderingCamel

Now, if I'd had my own camera and no injured knee, there'd have been dozens of photos of Lisbon's tiles to choose from to show here - I just loved them - but with MrL's finger on the shutter most of the time and his eye and my thoughts on other things, most of them are just in my mind's eye.

The variety is extraordinary, beautiful blue and white panels, the facades of houses completely tiled in a single repeating pattern known as tapetes (carpets), handpainted friezes, metro stations, shop and restaurant interiors. Some really stand out - beautiful 19th century panels in shades of gold and cream on a house in Rue da Trinidad, a glimpse from a tram of a riotous frieze of Art Nouveau flowers and dragonflies, scenes of old Lisbon at the Miradouro de Santa Luzia, room after room in the lovely Casa de Alentejo where we had dinner with a2lopes and globetrott.

Of course I had to bring some home with me - a small panel of four old hand-painted tiles bought from a little flea-cum-antique market in Belem that are going to look great on the wall of a garden shed.

Visit two nice little towns...

by maxovna

Visit two nice little towns situated very close to Lisbon - Cascais and Sintra. And of course - Cabo da Roca - the most western point of continental Europe.

Welcome to my Portugal page, where I wrote the information of my visit to those wonderful places. My memories of Lisbon are very warm. The only thing that spoilt the excitement a bit was unbearable heat, so I could hardly move. I remember sitting on the grass in front of Jeronimos Monastery watching its facade, and from time to time beautifully coloured trams passed by. At last we took one of them to take us to the port, where our cruise liner was waiting for us.

SÉ CATHEDRAL

by LysDor

The place of Sé Cathedral with its Church of Santa Maria Mayor has been a place of worship far before it´s construction in the 12th century.

I was told, that it´s 'a late-Romanesque style with Gothic, Mannerist, Baroque, neo-Romanesque and neo-Gothic elements'.

Unique then, must I say!!

Ginginha

by solopes

Local traditions are fading, but some still have their followers. Ginginha is one of them: two tiny shops were the landmark of this cherry liquor, that, of course, you may buy everywhere, including shops and supermarkets. But the tradition was to stop, ask for a Ginginha at the counter, and drink it outside, watching the passing people.

Portuguese sanitary authorities forced the closing of the small stalls that traditionalists would like to reopen. Meanwhile, Largo de S. Domingos keeps being a talking area, only without the glass in people’s hands. Till when?
