Alternative Things to Do: Lisbon

Since I’m staying in these cities for longer than the average tourist I thought I’d make a little series of “off the beaten trail” recommendations.

…..and just some other recommendations too 🙂

  1. Hike to the abandoned (and super creepy) Panoramic Restaurant of Monsanto forest

Favs

Restaurant: Cantinho Lusitano try the baked goat cheese in honey and rosemary!

Café: Pois Café try the chai latte and hummus!

Bar: there are many to try in Bairro Alto! the best nightlife for me was drinking a bottle of wine on one of the park benches on Avenida da Liberdade 🙂
