Take a ride up to experience the trams. But leave the experience there as Lisbon is best achieved through walking the small streets. #travelhustle

I found Lisbon fascinating. Although some seious hills to navigate we found the public transport system very efficient. Eating out is very reasonable with lots of choices.

I absolutely recommend it because it's very well made and the public transportation in Lisbon is very traditional, going through the neighbourhoods into the city center!

"squeak", the nickname of a 16th century poet) offers
plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars where you can
stop for a cafe or cocktail, after exploring its
streets, shops, art galleries, theaters, museums and
viewpoints. It's also the home to the statue of the
famous statue of portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa,
having is usual espresso at "A Brasileira" as he used
