Visiting Lisbon in early December couldn’t have been more magical. With temperatures hovering around the low 60s, it was the perfect time to explore and discover all this coastal city had to offer!
A Weekend in Lisbon
There is a lot of old world charm in Lisbon. It’s the kind of place that has an antique book store in a main plaza. Imagine that in New York! It’s rustic yet colorful and oh-so charming. Take a tour of some of my favorite moments from a relaxing weekend in Lisbon, Portugal.
Here are some of my top things to do in Lisbon, Portugal.
Praça do Comércio
Praça do Comércio is a famous large square in Lisbon, right at the foot of the ocean! It’s a must-visit to anyone’s trip to Lisbon. As you can see, they love to decorate around Christmastime!
Hills of Lisbon
Lisbon is known for its many hills and steep climbs. Don’t forget to turn around as you’re climbing, there may be an absolutely gorgeous view just behind you…
Miradouro de São Pedro de Alcântara
If you’re looking for the most awesomely beautiful views of Lisbon then head north to Miradouro de São Pedro de Alcântara, where you can overlook this gorgeous city and even see as far as the Atlantic Ocean!
I stayed in the trendy Barrio Alto, which does get quite rowdy at night, so it’s perfect for anyone who wants to go out and experience Lisbon nightlife at their doorstep.
