Lisbon is a town that is perfect for romance: winding streets, ancient buildings and breath-taking lookouts abound. But what could be better than just experiencing love in this Portuguese city? Making memories to remember it by!
Luckily, the photo opportunities are endless in a city made for romance. Here are a few of our suggestions for activities to do in Lisbon that will also look amazing in the photos you have afterwards.
Taking Tram 28 from Prazeres to Martim Monez
This beautiful tram winds its way through some stunning neighbourhoods and is a romantic way to see the city on a genuine 19th century transport. Start at sea-level and make your way all the way up to St George’s Castle to take in the sweeping views at the top.
Wander around Belém
There’s plenty of beauty in this part of town, with museums and parks leading you to the Torre de Belém, a 14th century lookout perfect for snuggling with your lover.
Explore the Thieves Market
Marvel at the treasures you’ll find in the Feira da Ladra, with antiques and artisan goods mingling with more standard market fare at the foot of the beautifully ornate Santa Engracia church.
Find Kissing Corners in Alfama
Climbing the narrow, steep alleyways of the old Alfama neighbourhood, you can be charmed by the discoveries of hidden buildings, staircases and sudden startling views. There’s no more romantic backdrop to kissing.
Watch the Sun Set from Miradouro da Graça
There are plenty of high points to watch the sun set over a romantic day in Lisbon, but the Miradouro da Graça is one that will make you really feel the city you’re in. Enjoy a romantic drink under the wide branches of the leafy square and see the sun dip into the bay behind the stunning 25 de Abril bridge.
