Areas to stay
- Baixa Chiado: How about starting your trip to Lisbon walking through the Chiado neighbourhood and arriving at the Santa Justa lift? Here you can contemplate the best panoramic views of Lisbon. This area is the ‘downtown district’ of Lisbon and is popular with tourists for short stay apartments in Baixa.
- Alfama: Take a tram (we recommend the number 28) which is one of the busiest that runs through the Alfama neighbourhood. If you’re looking for a quieter area where it’s unlikely that you’ll run into tourists, you can get up at at 7am and take the first tram. It doesn’t matter how or when you do it, but you can’t visit the Alfama neighbourhood having not taken the tram at least once.
- Belém: This is the museum and cultural hub of the city, and you absolutely must visit the Santa María de Belém neighbourhood to see the Tower of Bethlehem, or the Jerónimos Monastery, which is one of the most symbolic monuments of its glorious past. You might want to choose this neighbourhood as a potential location.
- Bairro Alto: Perched atop a hill, this district is quirky and full of independent bars with something special going on behind every door.
- Cascais: If you were wondering whether Lisbon had a beach, this is its nearest and is just a half an hour train journey from the city centre, so if you’re looking for something a little bigger, we recommend this neighbourhood.
When to visit
Lisbon functions a little differently in terms of seasonality in comparison to other European capitals. January is the cheapest month for holiday accommodation as prices are falling up to 20% in the first months of the year. In addition to its many landmarks, Lisbon is a setting for world-class events such as Rock in Rio which is held every two years in the Portuguese capital. During the month of June, festivities are celebrated across the city from Madragoa to Mouraria or Castelo, among many others. The San Antonio festival on 13th June transforms the city in particular from day to night. It is important to consider the time of year in comparison to sporting events, too. The Lisbon Marathon is in September, and football derbies draw large crowds to the city between Benfica, who play their matches in the magnificent Estadio da Luz, and Sporting de Lisboa, a club that brought players such as Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Figo to the fore. Along with all the above, Portuguese culture is not far behind and both music and gastronomy simply add to its value. Musically, Lisbon is famous for its tierra del fado, a slow song accompanied by a Portuguese guitar. On the other hand, in terms of gastronomy there is nothing more typical than the Pastéis de Belém, with more than 200 years of history. You can try them in the Antigua Casa Dos Pastéis de Belém. Before, make sure you eat some fish from the Atlantic Ocean, for example at the Ramiro Marisquería, where you can enjoy some peixinhos da horta or any of the 365 cod recipes that are said to be in Lisbon. There are many reasons for enjoying this city - it is the ideal destination for Easter and summer holidays, just when the prices of holiday apartments increases by 50% and reaches maximum levels.
