7 Reasons to Love Lisbon

7  Reasons to Love Lisbon

# 1. AMAZING FOOD!


Tip: Don’t go home without ordering seafood risotto and grilled seabass. Lisbon truly benefits from being by the sea. For something typically Portugese, try Caldo Verde, commonly made with potatoes, cabbage and onions, it’s simple yet extremely moreish.


#2. TAKE OFF YOUR CLOTHES


Portugal has one of the mildest climates in Europe and one of the sunniest too.


Tip: Although a lot sunnier, it can still be chilly during the winter so make sure you’ve packed enough warm clothing just in case.


#3. LISBOA LOVES DOGS


Tip: Head to Campo de Santa Clara on Saturday when it becomes a giant flea market, it’s great a place for dog-watching!


#4. STREET ART

 

#5. TILES AND COLOUR EVERYWHERE

 

Tip: For a true ‘tile experience’ head to the Tile Museum, trust me, it’s quirkier than it sounds and also has a cool café.

 

#6. THE TRANSPORT IS SO EFFICIENT (AND THE SUBWAYS LOOK LIKE A MODERN ART GALLERY)


#7. THE LARGE SQUARES


London has Trafalgar, Venice has St.Mark’s, and Lisbon has Praça do Comércio. Large squares are usually filled with the city’s most iconic statues and buildings, and Lisbon is no different. If you want to feel like you have arrived in the capital, there is no greater place than Praça do Comércio, with its yellow and white 18-th century arcades and monumental arch, this is certainly the city at its most regal.


Tip: Take some snaps of the equestrian statue before wandering down to the waterfront, it’s the perfect place to soak up the sun and indulge in everyone’s favourite pastime: people watching.
