What to do in Lisbon
Shopping in Lisbon
From elegant high street stores to flea markets and indoor shopping centre, Lisbon has a great range of places to shop. For antiques and bric-a-brac, the Feira da Ladra (Thieves’ Market) is popular in the Alfama district. If you spot and buy one of the ubiquitous ceramic cockerel souvenirs to take back on your flight Lisbon will linger long in your memory after you have left.
Other top things to buy are embroidered goods, shoes, good quality wine at cheap prices, and cheese, especially that made with goat’s milk. If you want to treat yourself while you are there, book yourself a beauty treatment. The salons of Lisbon focus on labour rather than technology so you are almost always guaranteed a great massage.
The bridges of Lisbon
One of the most famous landmarks in Lisbon is the Ponte 25 de Abril. When you arrive on your flight Lisbon might looked choked with traffic as this bridge is the main link between Lisbon and Almada on the south bank of the Rio Tejo.
However a second bridge, the Ponte Vasco da Gama, was built to alleviate congestion and this has transformed the eastern waterfront with the Parque das Nacoes and its family-orientated attractions, the Knowledge and Science Pavilion, and the Torre Vasco da Gama, the city’s tallest building.
