Lisbon: A Day for a Tram Ride Around Town
"Any Portuguese town looks like a superstitious bride’s finery – something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue."
Markets, Sunsets, and Trams! Oh My!
On this day in Lisbon get ready to check out all the sites from inside the famous Tram 28. This iconic yellow tram is one of five operating lines in this ancient city, but before you get settled for the ride, make sure to fuel up with coffee and breakfast (and snacks, why not) at one of Lisbon's urban (and quite chic) markets, Mercado de Campo de Ourique.
After the tram ride check out one of Lisbon's other market, Time Out, for lunch, where choices will be plenty once again. Walk off the long ride and lunch at the local hangout spot, Viewpoint Santa Catarina. We of course have to make a stop for some delicious egg tarts at our number one favorite, Manteigaria, no day is complete without one (or three).
As the sun starts to set, get a front row ticket at a very unique rooftop bar that sits on top of a parking garage before settling down for dinner at a neighborhood favorite, Tapa Bucho. Finally, wander the streets until you find the secret sign, a red frog on the side of the wall, and enter a cocktail lovers dream at Red Frog Speakeasy. You will sleep well tonight my friend!
