Lisbon Travel Diary

it's been a bit more than a week since I came back from my trip to Portugal. it was my first time exploring the country and hopefully not the last. we started our journey in Lisbon and I completely fell in love with this charming city. there are more posts coming so stay tuned! 





Praça Luís de Camões

/ we stayed in Bairro Alto, very close to Chiado and Baixa so the location was super central. and the view was amazing!

Elevador da Glória

/ there are 3 funiculars in Lisbon as the city is very hilly. included in the public transport day ticket, it's a fun but short ride

Praça do Comércio

/  located next to the Tagus river, it is one of the main squares in Lisbon.  I loved the open view, such a gorgeous place

Elevador da Bica

/ we went early in the morning and got the whole funicular to ourselves. it felt a bit surreal to be honest, going up and down the hill in an old, empty funicular while the street around us was practically empty

traditional facades in city centre

/ the architecture in Portugal is amazing, a lot of the houses are decorated with beautiful tiles and the patterns are super gorgeous



Alfama

/ it's the oldest neighbourhood of Lisbon, very beautiful and charming. if you're in Lisbon, definitely ride one of the old trams, it's one of my highlights from the trip! I recommend the tram 28, it passes through most of the central districts and it's a super fun experience although a bit scary at times - the streets are very narrow and steep. you can get off the tram in Alfama and stop at Miradouro de Santa Luzia, one of the many viewpoints in the city






Belem

/ another district of Lisbon and a home to many Lisbon landmarks like Padrão dos Descobrimentos, Mosteiro dos Jerónimos and Torre de Belém (see the last two photos). the Museu Colecção Berardo is also nearby, if you like modern and contemporary art it's worth visiting. and the best part - the entrance is free

  37. I absolutely adore Portugal! Such a beautiful country. I've never actually been to Lisbon and it looks gorgeous in your photos! I'd recommend Faro in the Algarve if you haven't been before, it's a lovely place!
