Lisbon, Portugal

November 26, 2016

Lisbon, a historical city full of authenticity where old customs and ancient history blend perfectly with cultural entertainment and hi-tech innovation.
The capital and largest city of Portugal, Lisbon is the home of ~2.7 million people, making it the 11th most populous city in the EU.
This global city of tourism, international trade, art, media, finance, and commerce is the the 7th most visited city in Southern Europe,
after Istanbul, Rome, Barcelona, Madrid, Athens and Milan (posts on the remainder cities are to come, stay tuned!).

I was overwhelmed by Lisbon's beauty.
Above all, I had the Most much fun exploring and navigating the endless activities and sites around the city.
While there is no real central district, Praça do Comércio is a great place to start.
You might try climbing up the Cristo Rei, with spectacular view across the entire city.
Explore the Belém district, where you can find works by Picasso, Warhol, Dali, and Magritte.
Alfama, with its Roman and Jewish past, where past and present intersect in perfect harmony, get your camera ready! 
Lisbon is a very hilly city, so be sure to check out the numerous miradouros (viewpoints) -
 São Pedro de Alcântara, da Nossa Senhora do Monte, Portas do Sol, da Graça, Santa Luzia...
Lastly, remember to wear comfy shoes.

Enjoy this precious gem!
