We only stayed in Lisbon for 3 days, and this might be too short and unfair of a statement for me to make. But Lisbon is now my favorite city in Europe. It’s trendy, artsy and full of culture. For any food lover out there, Lisbon has some amazing restaurant and dining concepts.
Time out market was one of them. A hip food court with international dishes and stalls serving wines and beers from Portugal. I always get so surprised at how affordable it is to dine out in southern Europe. I wish I had some photos from the Time Out Market, you’ll have to click here for pictures. They’re building one in Miami now, so please Bangkok. Let’s get one here too! Unfortunately AND of course fortunately ,we got a new camera in Portugal but the RAW format is not compatible with our Lightroom so I’m missing so many photos.
Portugal is famous for their delicious sea food, so of course we had to try out one of the best seafood restaurants (called Sea Me) in town. Make sure you make a reservation beforehand, we learned the hard way… let’s just say it was the longest we’ve ever queued up for a restaurant. But it was so worth it. And do pair it with Portugal’s famous green wine “Vinho Verde” It’s light, sweet and bubbly and so easy to drink. That’s the only wine I drank during my stay there. I also don’t have any photos from this place… the food and drinks were just too good to waste any time.
The city seems flat when driving in to Lisbon, but you’ll be surprised at how steep the streets of Lisbon really are. It’s so beautiful to walk around and get lost there, and just a small tram journey away lies the stunning district of Belém. This is where Jeronimos Monastery and the famous Belém tower is located.
We stayed at a loft apartment in the middle of Lisbon that we rented from The Blue House Lisboa. Perfect location and great value for money. They have loads of apartments that could fit your needs, travelling solo or as a family.
I’m already looking forward to my next trip to Portugal, where Lisbon is one of the cities I definitely want to revisit!
