Fondest memory: to look for river Tejo , take a walk along the river, drink and read something on the Café or restaurant and to appreciate the sight on the other margin of the river
After the Universal Expo'98, Losbon is a beutiful city. Don't miss the gates entering the city (one of those is similiar to the San Francisco's gate'.
Fondest memory: The contrast between old things and modern thing. And, of couse, i miss the low price of everything!!
Go to the top of Sta.Justa elevator and take a cup of coffee with the wonderful views. Rent a car and make an excursion to Sintra.
Fondest memory: The Belem quarter monuments, and Pastelitos de Belem (small tipical cakes)
Visit the old part of the City and the shoping area, what we call Baixa.
You also should not miss the 'Elevadores'. There are three in Lisboa, all near by. There is the Elevador de Santa Justa, Elevador da Gloria and Elevador do Lavra.
Please visit the river front in the Belem area. You can use the tram or the bus to go there. It is really nice.
Fondest memory: The river, the light and the people who are always helpful.
Alfama is the most ancient area in Libon. It survived the 1755 earthquake.
Have a stroll here and you' ll discover some small squares; a maze of narrow streets, restaurants, cafes and shops.
Just enjoy Lisbon as much as you can.... you'll want to come back again, im sure!
Fondest memory: Do you want to learn more about Lisbon, here it goes:
Favorite thing: The thing I liked most about Lisbon is its variety of suburbs, streets and places. Within walking distance are completely different neighbourhoods, different attitudes. It's a very "mondial" place.
Favorite thing: Like many cities around southern Europe and the Mediterranean, Lisbon is full of gardens. Beautiful, bright flowers are all over the place (even in September, when I visited).
Favorite thing: See Belem region, take a tram #28, go to the Castelo, see Ocenario and new Lisbon, lisen to Fado in a restaurant,...
Favorite thing: ...We were here during the daylight as there are not so many interesting restaurants to be courageously explored in the dark evenings on these narrow alleys.
It was the first district to have straight streets. Nowadays it looks like a maze where you probably will think first you don´t want to get lost during the night...
