lisbon portugal cool capital

Lisbon Portugal the uber cool capital is fast gaining a reputation for partying by night and cultural sightseeing by day. Blessed with lots of sunshine, a coastal location and still relatively “undiscovered” for Western Europe. Lisbon, is well connected by air and rail to all other major European capitals. You could easily spend two weeks in this value for money destination. Only1invillage spent a week in Lisbon and it wasn’t enough! Stay in any one of the distinct districts or hop between them. The Baixa district is where most of the activities and shops are located. Stay here if you don’t want to move and want to be centrally based. Chiado and Bairro Alto are fast becoming the hip, cool, bohemian, alternative place to live. Very trendy bar area at night and cafe scene by day. If you want to live like the locals, then Alfama will be your pick. More traditional with many narrow streets and home to dying trades like fishing. The Belem district has many fine monuments and grand houses. If you’re looking for more space and a less hectic space and of course the best egg custard tarts, this district is for you.
