"Lisbon the sunny city." Lisbon by Oleg_D.

Lisbon Travel Guide: 5,338 reviews and 13,204 photos


What is Lisbon for me? This is the sunny city with nice weather and friendly people. This is medieval Alfama where you can feel real old Lisbon with your own skin. And of course my personal impression is based on the pleasure I received visiting the Lisbon?s museums, churches, monasteries and castle. I like that city. First evening in Lisbon we spent at the Square of Commerce because we were had to visit the tourist office and collect our Lisbon cards. That evening was wonderful and unforgettable!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Beautiful town with great history and cultural heritage. Very polite and friendly inhabitants.
  • Cons:None

      Because although I retired I still work and cannot travel when I want. My schedules depend on my job.

      I have the same problem. I signed that meeting, but I still have to wait some weeks more to check a flight and book a room in Albufeira.

    Excellent page about Lisbon. I hope that you will write in teh future a review about your visit to the Fado Museum.

      Thank you for visiting and rating. Probably I will write about Fado but I'm incorrigible medieval militarist, that's why medieval general and especialy military history has priority.

    Very interesting Lisbon page with very different tips. On my two visits of the Portuguese capital I haven't really visited a single museum. I love your intro photos. Well done.

    Bringing back great memories of my visit to Lisbon and Belem. Indeed you found a few museums that I missed! I suppose I will just have to visit your suggestions in the future; a good excuse to visit a beautiful city and country.

      Thank you for your evaluation! You are absolutely right! I?m always trying to find such self-justifications to come back to some cities!
