In #Lisbon an espresso costs €0.60 and you can even find one for €0.55. THE best cup costs €1 and you get a taste of hand made chocolate thrown, but you have to know where to go!

Why a beer costs €1 in Portugal but €3 in Germany! Portugal is the cheapest western country in the eurozone with €100 in Germany worth about €122 in Lisbon. Welcome to the eurozone, where the coins and notes are the same but the prices differ markedly. While its 19 member countries share a curre...

High life on top of town here in Lisbon
It took four years to build, but the ride to the top takes only 30 seconds. So let Lisbon offer you a lift for some of the best views of its skyline. This 147-feet high neo-Gothic tower takes you from the flat streets of Baixa to the hills of Chiado and Bairro Alto. Two polished wood cabins with...

I remember when the 24 tram ran as usual public transport and don't see when the city does not bring it back again. The tourist explosion here in the city is VERY obvious, I drove up to the lookout point in Graca the other day just before sundown and it was I can only describe as INFESTED with Tuk Tuks! Here in my 'hood finding a spot to park my vehicle as a resident is increasingly difficult since the opening of the gourmet market. I love my tourist but I love my city more and the one very much depends on the other - don't lose your city my dear locals.
Ever since tram number 24 stopped running up one of Lisbon’s famous hills two decades ago, residents have been demanding its return. So when the renamed Tram Tour began service in May on a shortened route known for hilltop views of the city, it might have been cause to rejoice. Instead, the tram ...

Alfama that old Lisbon quarter where even the local's washing hanging to dry is a travel treat on its own. Take a walk on the travel wild side and get down deep into the real Portugal.

Lisbon I'm hooked, from red roof to trundling tram this is my town.
Even with a favorable exchange rate (€1 is approximately $1.20 at the moment), popular western European destinations like London, Paris, and Rome can be staggeringly expensive. Lisbon, on the other hand, offers the same old-world ambiance at a bargain. Most of the city's attractions are free or inexpensive to enter, and the local food and wine offer high quality at low prices. Family-run inns, known as pensaos, are not only more affordable than your typical hotel, but they also provide a more authentic experience.
It's gorgeous.
From the wide, tree-lined Avenida de Liberdade, to the brightly painted houses in Baixa and Alfama, to the majestic arches in Terreiro de Paço (Lisbon's sprawling central square), Lisbon's streets are filled with whimsy, romance, and vibrancy. Don't forget to look down as you stroll: ornate tilework, a Portuguese trademark, adorn a number of the city's sidewalks.
The climate is ideal.
Lisbon's position on the coast means it has great weather year round. It's sunny and warm from late May through October, while winters are mild, with blustery weather and snow rare. That's great news for off-season travelers.
It’s perfect for beach lovers.
Lisbon is one of the few major European cities to be surrounded by beaches. Hop the train to Estoril (35 mins) or Cascais (40 mins, pictured), but beware of the crowds—these beaches are popular with tourists and locals alike. Less busy, but also slightly further afield, lies Praia de Adraga, one of the most beautiful beaches in all of Europe.
It’s also perfect for foodies.
Portuguese cuisine is a seafood lover's dream. The country’s proximity to the Atlantic Ocean manifests in a menu heavy on fish dishes. Traditional eats like bacalhau (dried, salted cod—make sure you have a tall glass of water at your side) and qmêijoas à bulhão pato (clams in white wine sauce) are as ubiquitous as they are tasty. Head to the famous restaurant Cervejaria Ramiro (Av. Almirante Reis, nº1 – H, 1150-007 Lisboa) to get your fill of the best seafood Lisbon has to offer. For a sweet treat, grab a pasteis de nata (custard tart).
The nightlife is bustling.
Lisbon is well known for its happening and inexpensive nightlife. For bars, head to the Bairro Alto district (pictured)—its streets are densely packed with hotspots. The areas around the Cais do Sodré and Largo de Santos are rife with discos. And for a more old school vibe, hit up a Fado club in the Alfama district. Fado, a type of traditional Portuguese folk music popular in Lisbon, is tuneful, though decidedly morose.
Sintra is less than an hour away.
You can't visit Lisbon without making a daytrip to the municipality of Sintra. Sintra is a 45-minute train ride outside of the city, home to a UNESCO-listed complex of now-uninhabited former royal palaces. Pro tip: While there are at least five major palaces to see, those short on time would do well by only visiting two, the Sintra National Palace and the Pena National Palace. You can get a combined ticket for entry to both for about €20.

Portugal’s capital may be packed with history, but it is also full of options for the travel trendsetter. With its vibrant nightlife, hip art spaces, quirky shopping and contemporary dining scene, Lisbon is a rising star among Europe’s coolest cities. Here are 10 travel ideas that reflect the new face of Lisbon...

Jose Avillez's food crew refer to me as the 'famous Mary Goudie' after some serious memorable tour guests partied at their jumping food joints.

Coolest Foodie market in on my next city block here in my 'hood of Campo de Ourique where I manage a walk through a few times a week. My latest passion is the pink peppercorns (different plant entirely from the other peppers) from the great spice seller there. I am given to popping these like popcorn!

There's ALWAYS some other great street art on offer somewhere in the city. I just spotted a little serious of feet art yesterday near the Portuguese Parliament as we drove past. Have to go back and snap these - too cute for words.

Time to find out about Portugal's Templar headquarters in World Heritage Tomar. Very do-able on a custom day tour out of Lisbon. This Convent of the Knights of Christ is like medieval corporate head office, with different cloisters from different centuries and the jewel in the crown - the Charola the round church that Manuel I added to. 
#Templar tracery, this late Gothic window is hidden between two walls & the two architectural styles of Manueline Portuguese and Renaissance Italian influence. Time to find out Templar secrets on a custom travel tour to #Tomar http://bit.ly/tourLisbon

Mary has the ability to tailor her tours to the interests and level of knowledge of her tour guests..She showed me around Quelez Palace in Lisbon and.on a day trip to the Knights Templar's fort at Tomar and the Shrine of Fatima. She gave me me a lot of insight into all the places that we visited.
