Lisbon – Loved it ! by Cindy

I have recently spent 2 nights in the amazing city of Lisbon, I stayed in the old town with many Faldo restaurants and bars close by. Full of little cobbled streets, a maze of quirky alleyways as Lisbon is quite hilly in parts it offers some fantastic view points looking down over the city and cruise port. The upper city region can easily be explored by the beautiful old trams or the local tuk tuk’s. In the new part of the city it has a wide range of shopping, castles, churches and the old elevator of Santa Justa with its amazing piece of engineering and fabulous views from the top. I took the 28 tram journey between the new and old city a brilliant way of seeing what Lisbon has to offer. I stumbled across a fabulous food hall called Time Out Lisbon that offers many varieties of food that have all been tested by a panel of judges before allowing to be sold, it really is a hidden gem and well worth the visit. I would like to return with my children and explore the surrounding areas including Balem Tower. I would recommend this city to everyone, young or old, lively or traditional it caters for all.
