10 THINGS YOU MUST DO WHILST IN LISBON
• Take a ride on Tram 28 - Lisbon is a hilly city and cobblestone streets abound, thus trams and funiculars help to get people around, very especially up and down hills and are an indisputable pictorial part of the city. The vintage yellow “Electrico 28” offers the most interesting route crossing the city centre, going over through some of the oldest quarters and many touristic attractions
• Eat grilled sardines – look out for an outdoor eatery in a sunny spot with a sardines sizzling on a grill next to it, sit down and order
• Amble around the Feira da Ladra - no trip to Lisbon is complete without a visit to this in-famous open-air flee market
• Drink a Ginginha – this strong cherry brandy typical of Lisbon is served in a small glass with an alcohol soaked cherry at the bottom and the place to sample such a beverage is at “A Ginginha” hole-in-the-wall bar next to the Dona Maria Theatre, where curious tourists and drunk old men mix to enjoy this legendary drink!
• Visit the Igreja de Santo António (Lisbon's patron saint) and the epicentre of Lisbon June's festivities
• Listen to some Fado - Portugal's national song is mournful, sad and accompanied by guitars but quite an experience
• Get lost in Alfama - step into this medieval maze of alleys and crumbling houses and you wont escape getting lost for a couple of hours of indulgent sight seeing
• Visit the Coach Museum - located in the Belém district, it has one of the finest collections of historical carriages in the work. Full info www.museudoscoches.pt
• Check out the beaches near the Portuguese capital - catching a train from Lisbon (Cais do Sodré station) to Cascais on the west coast, is a picturesque way to do so. They run daily, departing every 15-20 minutes and take no more than ½ hour to reach its final destination, there are however quite a few stops with nice beaches before – just take your pick
• Explore Lisbon & its surrounds with a local rather than follow a guide book & learn a bit more about it, from a resident's point of view!
Cais do Sodré (train station to Carcavelos, Estoril & Cascais plus Bohemian night-out area) – 25 mins walk
Bairro Alto (trendy shops, restaurants & bars open till late) – 20 mins walk
Chiado (shopping district) & Praça do Comercio – 25 mins walk
Belém (historic and discoveries quarter) – 7 kms
Santa Apolonia Station (incoming trains from Spain & north/south of Portugal) - 5 kms
Oriente Station & Expo Site (incoming trains from Spain & north/south of Portugal, concerts and events venue) – 15 kms
Lisbon Airport – 20 km
Estoril & Cascais beaches – 26 kms

"Lisbon Rivewer est un appartement de charme, où l'on se sent bien"
Cet appartement est très agréable, meublé avec très bon goût. Il est très confortable et la vue de la terrasse sur le Tage est superbe. Dommage qu'il n'y ait pas de parasol car dans la journée il y fait très chaud. Dans ce bel appartement il y a tout le nécessaire pour s'y sentir bien, la cuisine est bien équipée, le salon est très convivial. Et je souligne que l'accueil de Mandy est très chaleureux. Il faut marcher pour rejoindre le centre de Lisbon, mais c'est très agréable, car il y a pleins de découvertes à faire lors de ces marches.. Une très belle étape à Lisbonne, à recommander!

"Beautiful view, great location"
We stayed at Lisbon Riverview apartment for a week and enjoyed everything the apartment and location had to offer. The apartment was perfect for 4 friends with all the facilities one could expect. The balcony was definetely the icing on the cake, where we enjoyed our evenings and mornings. The area was within walking distance to the Mercado do Ribeira and Bairo Alto, but it was easy to catch a cab from the street when feeling lazy. Our host Mandy was very helpful with tips and we would highly recommend a stay here whether your traveling with friends or family. The only things that would have made this even greater is an umbrella for the balcony:-)

"Amazing apartment with amazing views!"
We had 4 days here in April and it is the perfect setting for exploring Lisbon. The apartment was spotless, It had everything you needed there, from the well equipped kitchen to Nespresso coffee and fantastic views from the roof terrace. Great to watch the sun go down after a great day exploring Lisbon. It's close to shops and cafes and a 10 minute walk to the Mercado da Ribeira which has everything you need to eat well in Lisbon. Supermarket is also close by for when you arrive. The whole apartment is very cosy and has a lovely typical Portuguese feel to it, we have already booked a return trip for the end of the year! Thanks Mandy for being a great host.
