What is there to do in Lisbon?
Whether you are looking to get the best pictures, or hoping to catch a glimpse of the landmarks, the best time of the day to do so is early in the morning. Take advantage of the unobscured views by rising early and visiting the Praça do Comércio, Rossio, or wander through the Baixa and Chiado neighbourhoods to enjoy these sights without the hustle and bustle.
Lisbon is home to a unique array of local artisans and makers using both traditional and modern methods to create unique giftware, home decor and fashion pieces. Head over to the trendy area of the Principe Real neighbourhood (5 minutes from Bairro Alto) to check out the creative hubs of Embaixada and Entretanto that house a number of designers under one collective roof offering them mini stores within these historic buildings, almost like an indoor marketplace.
