We went on a Lisbon family vacation 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.
- 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 taking a Lisbon family vacation, I definitely recommend it. There is so much to see and do and the kids will love it as much as the adults!
