  • great little place in alfama

    by

    i just began a trip to portugal and spain, and lisbon was my first stop. i found a place just by chance, the lazy crow, and went there because they were cheap, not expecting much. but i had the best surprise. they're right in the middle of alfama, wich is THE best quarter to visit in the whole town , and apart from that they run the place like it's a holliday friends house. first thing you have to do is join the crowd and sip a beer at the pateo. then the staff tells you the good places to go that are not in the map (there's no map that can get you through alfama anyway). in the evening if you're still alive, because everything in lisbon is up and the hill, you end up going with the staff to local bars that are NOT for tourists... it was the best, and a great start...

    Unique Quality: location, location, location. a nice kitchen where you can even get some tips if you like cooking. very nice staff and atmosphere.

    Directions: middle of alfama

Local information

by littlefirefly

Hi,

Does anyone know someone in Portugal who would like to show us around, we would rather have a person and not a professional guide as we like the locals version of things. We are staying in Estoril.

Thanks,

Hi :)

Why not try CouchSurfing? I've had my eye on it for some time, haven't yet used it myself, but have heard good things from others. It's an international network of people who like to travel. You'll need to sign up as a member to use it. Some of the CouchSurfers offer to put others up for a night or two, others offer to guide you around their home town, meet up for a pint or a coffee etc.

Here's the URL: http://www.couchsurfing.org/index.html

You should post your interest for a meet up in the VT meetings section. I'm sure there would be some VTers in the area who'd like to meet you at an agreed-upon time & place.

Good Luck & Enjoy Beautiful Lisbon!

Re: Local information

by Odinnthor

Well, there in lies the problem. Local folks anywhere are nice and capable people, but may not have the local knowledge of history as a professional guide will. I certainly prefer to hang around with the locals, - but for history, a pro is better. If a vague history is good enough, by all means have a ball with the locals. This is of course a general observation, with many exceptions, but in general it goes for almost anywhere.....d:o)

Travel Tips for Lisbon

Spreading across hills on the...

by tucha

Spreading across hills on the north bank of the Tagus estuary, the city is proud of its days of glory during the Age of Discovery, as can be seen in such monuments as the Mosteiro dos Jerónimos, a magnificent monastery from the 16th century, or the Torre de Belém, a tower built as a fortress near the river Tagus that became a symbol of the Portuguese era of expansion.

Many other historic monuments and museums are worth visiting, such as the Castelo de São Jorge (once a Moorish castle with superb views over the city), the Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga (a national art collection within a 17th century palace), the Cathedral and churches such as São Vicente de Fora.

Old and fascinating quarters with picturesque houses and narrow streets, such as Alfama and Bairro Alto, now exhibit fashionable restaurants and bars or the fado houses, where this typical music of Lisbon is sung acompanied by guitars.

More modern developments, such as the Centro Cultural de Belém (featuring concerts, shows and exhibitions) or the grounds where the Expo´98 was held, with a gigantic aquarium, illustrate new tendencies in architecture and entertainment. The weather: in Lisbon, there is almost days of sunshine, contrary to many european cities.

The invented city

by bambino36

In the place where the last World Exposition of the 20th Century took place it was built a new city inside the city called Parque das Nações. It's a place for walking, relaxing, and even for shopping.
The theme of the Expo'98 was "The Oceans: A Heritage for the Future" so every construction is related to it.

Martin Moniz square

by irisbe

The brand new square, Martim Moniz, faces the Hotel Mundial. It has underground parking space.

The end stop of that magnificent old tram number 28 is at this square, but if you want to start the tour you will have to cross the square and go to the opposite site of it.
There is the start stop of the tram.
You cannot just stay on it while it makes the 100 meter tour around the square from end to start. That was funny. One evening we took a bottle of Porto with us and sat at the square.

An aged local came walking by... bit tipsy, and we shared the bottle with him.

He only knew Portuguese and we didn't, but still we had a lot of fun.

It was full moon over the Castelo de Sao Jorge and we sang together of When the moon struck your eye like a big pizza pie.
It just was fun.

Information Panels

by barryg23

The tourist board in Lisbon has followed Paris's lead by displaying information at key sights around the city. The design of the panels is remarkably similar to those in Paris. In fact, Lisbon has gone better as the information is in English as well as Portugese.

Lisbon Marathon

by pugwashman

We happened to be in Lisbon when the Lisbon Marathon was being run. It was a lovely morning for it, at least it was for watching it. The route took the runners down the seafront, finishing in the Praca de Comercio. It looked very good, though we didn't stay to see them finish as we were off to Sintra for the day. We saw some of the half marathoners finish though.
