    Favorite thing: walk, walk, walk!! If you don't you don't get to see many hidden things.

    Fondest memory: Www!!! I saw a man that really impressed me, I even had to take a picture, I had never seen anything like this, just in case I didn't do it with any kind of malice I just really had to take a picture of this!!

    Favorite thing: Go up the Elavador de Glória and look out at the castle and the city as the sun is setting - (photo is a bit earlier in the day.) Another day go up to the castle itself at sunset.

    Fondest memory: Probably eating outside at the Rei dos Frangos with dancers on the edge of the square in view.

    Favorite thing: see the Pantheon
    (picture on the left) and take a trip on the typical old
    trams (picture on the right). This one is very peculiar: it was built
    in order to climb up a very steep road.

    by G_Butler Written Aug 24, 2002

    Favorite thing: Walk up towards the castle. You'll come across narrow old streets that you don't see from the trams. It may look a fair climb, but it really isn't that strenuous and the views from the top are breathtaking.

    Fondest memory: My best memory was up at the castle one night during the beer festival in July and looking over the city.It really was amazing.

    Favorite thing: The best was probably the trolley rides clang-clanging up and down the steep, narrow, and utterly charming old streets in the sections of Lisbon not flattened by the earthquake of 1755, or otherwise modernized.

    Fondest memory: Sintra, a two dollar and forty minute train ride away was awesome. Old Moorish fortifications and castles nestled on top of steep little mountains set in a natural park was simply wonderful.

    Favorite thing: When you continue by walking upriver (somebody said it´s not so far away, but it took a lot of time!) from Belém towards the city center,...

    Favorite thing: ...In order to get there take this tram-like Elevador da Gloria from Praca dos Restauradores.
    FUN but EXTRA-short trip!
