Our Lisbon Family Vacation

by Dana Arnold

We traveled to Lisbon with our family in May and had a great trip. The weather was warm, but not unbearable yet!

Where to Eat:

Time Out Market was a fabulous place to grab a sampling of the city’s best restaurants. It’s definitely worth visiting for a meal or snack.

How to Get Around:

Tram 28 is a great way to see the city. The earlier you can go the better to avoid lines. We folded down our stroller and it was fine since crowds weren’t bad yet. I have heard that early or late is the best way to do tram.

Tips and Advice:

We had to travel with a double umbrella stroller which was somewhat difficult. The city has a lot of narrow streets and is extremely hilly. If you can avoid the need for a stroller, or take a travel single stroller, it will make navigating much easier. 

Favorite Activities: 

  • Belem – spend an afternoon here and visit the Jerónimos Monastery.
  • Cascais – This is a resort town reachable by public transportation and known for its sandy beaches and busy marina. 
  • The Castle of St. George – Visit to see some of the oldest architecture in Lisbon.
  • Alfama – This neighborhood has plenty to do and is worth exploring.

If you have been considering Lisbon for a family trip, I definitely recommend it. There is so much to see and do and the kids will love it as much as the adults!
