I was dreaming of visiting this city for such a long time.
For me, Lisbon is a perfect mixture of many beautiful Mediterranean cities. Its picturesque viewpoints [miradouros], traditional Portuguese melancholic music [Fado] and narrow cobblestone streets with houses covered in tiles [azulejos] create the unique Lisboa experience.
Here are a few recommendations for you while visiting the city: Mercado da Ribeira (food court bringing together the city’s favorite food shops & restaurants), Embaixada in Príncipe Real (moorish-designed building with concept stores & restaurants), Pharmacia (very cool pharmacy inspired restaurant), Claudio Corallo (quality chocolate & espresso), Noobai Café in Bairro Alto (one of many rooftop bars in Lisbon with relaxed atmosphere). Make sure to visit Alfama for the most beautiful miradouros, Bairro Alto, Chiado, Príncipe Real and Belém (for the one and only Pastéis de Belém).
Have a look at some snapshots I took while traveling the beautiful city of Lisboa.
