"Hilly Capital City" Lisbon by Gillybob

Lisbon Travel Guide: 5,276 reviews and 13,137 photos

In May 2009, we had a great day trip to Lisbon from Cascais as part of EuroMeet2009.

Antonio met us at Jeronimos Monastery in Belem and, after a walk around the monastery, we split into groups to visit various sights around the city.

In June 2015 I returned to the city to spend the weekend there as friends were visiting from Baltimore, Maryland (USA). We had fantastic weather with daytime temperatures hitting over 35C and we were reminded that the city is laid out over 7 hills - it doesn't matter where you are headed, you'll be going up and down hill almost guaranteed!

Pros and Cons
  • Cons:7 hills means that this capital city will have you walking up and down all day long!!
