Now do not get me wrong, of course I am in no case a Lisbon expert, but these are the places I enjoyed the most.
My favorite restaurant of the week was definitely Fabulas (Calcada Nova de Sao Francisco 14). The food was super duper delicious and I fell head over heels with the interior.
Storik, Rua do Alecrim 30B-30D – yummy ‘flammes’ to share.
Lost in Esplanada, Rua D.Pedro V No. 56 – I love little ‘hidden’ places like these.
Casanova, Avenida Infante D. Henrique, Cais da Pedra 7 – the best wood oven pizzas.
Portas do Sol, Largo Das Portas do Sol – for the best view!
Fashion Clinic, Tivoli Fórum Store 5 – Paris’ Colette of Lisbon.
Fashion Clinic Outlet, Rua Jorge Barradas 22B – need I say more?
Luvaria Ulisses, Rua do Carmo 87A – for the most beautiful leather gloves.
Bertrand, Via Dr. Vasco Teixeira 370 – the world’s oldest bookstore.
I would surely avoid the massive shopping malls, unless you need something from Zara, Mango, H&M, Uterqüe, etc.
Take a ride with tram 28.
Enjoy the view from Miradouro das Portas do Sol.
Go to LX Factory, we did not have time to go there, but I Googled and I would definitely want to visit on my next trip.
Visit the Mude Design Museum, the entrance is free and I was very much impressed by everything on the ground floor.
During my five day trip to Lisbon, I stayed at the Evidencia Astoria Creative Hotel, located on a street near the luxury shopping street Avenida da Liberdade and the largest park in the city. Apart from a pretty good location, I thought the building was quite impressive and the rooms looked super nice. Since this was the only bed I slept in during my stay, I would not know what other hotels to recommend, though I was told Fontana Park Hotel (Rua Engenheiro Vieira da Silva 2) and Memmo Alfama (Travessa das Merceeiras 27, opening in June 2013) are good.
