This Lisbon guide is like a friend showing you around the city
Hi, I’m Alexandra. I’ve lived in Lisbon since 2012 and fell in love with the city of light immediately. I’ve been here long enough to see it grow its tourism exponentially. Ever since I’m on the hunt for the best spots to visit while escaping the crowds.
I’m offering you my secrets through this guide which was co-created by my husband Bruno – an authentic “alfacinha” (means salad – this is what Lisbon borns call themselves). We’re sure it’ll help you organize a trip of a lifetime.
Lisbon is a city of contrasts
Actually it’s more like a village and less like a modern metropolis.
Here days go by slower than at other places in the world.
Imagine yourself amidst the contrast of the red roofs with deep blue of river Tejo,
or the colourful tiles that build this museum city with the white-washed pavement, the flats and the hills, the wine and the lemonade. History, heritage and modern design, traditional and innovative cuisine, hot days and cool nights await you in the city of contrasts.
