5 Funky Things to do in Lisbon

Why you should Visit

Europe’s western-most capital is full of quirky little spots to spend some time. It’s a city built on several (very steep) hills that make it tiring to explore but all the more rewarding when you discover some of Lisbon’s hidden gems. Districts such as Alfama, the birthplace of Fado music, boast centuries of history while buzzing Bairro Alto turns into a giant street party almost every night. There’s also some delicious food and tasty snacks to be sampled in what is one of the continent’s most under-rated cities.

1) Eat, drink and be merry at Cruzes Credo
