Lisbon is an old world city with forward thinking conveniences. Wide beautiful avenues with art nuevo architecture intice you deeper to every street. If you follow the flow on the main avenues, you'll find yourself along the Tejo River to the Praça Commercial which is full of history site seerers, lovers, friends, some pigeons and great views.
Though driving can be an experience, you can see more and not have to worry about parking by taking the metro to your destinations. The maps are clear and downtown travel is much safefer than New World cities can be.
End your tour up at Saint George's Castle for a unforgettable sunset over this very small old world capital.

I loved Lisbon.
I was lucky enough to travel here for work and spent a week with five talented people in this inspirational city. We spent our days exploring the city, meeting people, eating and drinking. I love the blend of European charm, history and just enough gritty edge to make it cool.

I love Lisbon and all of its hills. There's great night life (fado music!) and plenty to see during the day. It looks like they have a replica of the Golden Gate Bridge, but it's really their own bridge designed by the same architect.

Beautiful scenery, delicious food, ridiculously friendly people and laid back Mediterranean attitude: Lisbon fits the bill.
When people asked what I did in Lisbon, I feel like telling them "I lived well!" There was only one disappointing meal in the whole week (a "must-go" place that is obviously overhyped). Everyone was accommodating from the lady in the dress shop who kept finding cute things for me based on what I had already picked out to the waiter who brought out shots of Portuguese liquor for free so we could experience it. Some friends asked about how dirty it was and all the "gypsies"...if by dirty you mean old, well then, that's half of Europe and there were no roving bands of "gypsies" when I was there. Only the over-earnest buskers and the occasional sunglass salesman.
Lisbon feels like a hidden gem, one that you want to show off to everyone but at the same time want to hide in case everyone comes and spoils it.

Lisbon's a beautiful city with a rich culture, absolutely delicious food, and some beautiful views. Take the trip out to Belem for the pastries and the Tower of Belem (which is so gorgeous!).
After our whirlwind trip to Europe, there was something a bit comforting about going to Lisbon. As someone from the Bay Area, coming to a city that looked a bit like European San Francisco with its hills, trolleys, and a bridge the looks like a cross between the Golden Gate Bridge and the Bay Bridge, I felt a bit like coming home. The city's history is even shaped by a historic earthquake.
I was sad, however, that we weren't able to do a fado show. I really wanted to do a fado show.

Lisbon is a great city to ramble in. Walking the side streets and crossing the town piazzas you stumble upon charming shops, cafes, churches and galleries. The Portuguese have a creative side that is in evidence in the old architecture and the new urban bars and shops. You have to overlook awful 60s architecture that marks the city every so often. There are a few great restaurants but other than that it isn't really a foodie spot. As a base to explore other parts of Portugal Lisbon cannot be beat.

Percorra a cidade a pé. Va ao Rossio ao Bairro Alto, suba de eletrico ate perto do Castelo de São Jorge e desça por Alfama. Entre pelo Arco Triunfal e passeie pela Rua Augusta. Suba pelo elevador de Santa Justa ate as ruinas de Convento do Carmo.
