The Portuguese capital is usually known as the City of Seven Hills because of the different levels of height this city has to offer.
In 2017, Lisbon was chosen as the world’s leading city break destination by the World Travel Awards. This capital has gone from strength to strength with great family accommodations, good food, lots of sightseeing and activities for kids and last but not least great weather all year round. You rarely see the temperature dropping below 15.
Today there are many symbols that translate the culture of Lisbon. From the famous yellow Tram 28 to the chef José Avillez who opened more than 10 restaurants and cafés in the city. Of course, you will see typical cobbled streets, the bridge Ponte 25 de Abril or the Fado which you can hear in different bars and restaurants (although we wouldn’t recommend it unless you have a baby sleeping through the singing all evening). And don’t forget to pay half day at the incredible aquarium.
Let’s not forget above all, the genuine kindness of the locals who speak good English and keen to help.
So are you ready to take your first trip to Lisbon? Boa viagem!
