What could be better?

What area of Lisbon is best to stay in?

The neighbouring areas of Baixa and Chiado are often flagged as the best parts of Lisbon to stay in, particularly for first-time tourists. Culture-rich Baixa was entirely rebuilt in the 18th century after a devastating earthquake destroyed much of Lisbon in 1755, and now is home to many grand neo-classical buildings and plazas. Chiado is Lisbon’s artistic neighbourhood, with gorgeous shops, cobbled streets and colourful-tiled buildings. For an authentic and quieter stay, head to Alfama, the oldest part of Lisbon. Whereas in Bairro Alto, Lisbon’s boho quarter, you’ll find bustling streets packed with shops, bars and restaurants that come alive in the night time, perfect for a girls’ weekend away.

What is the best month to visit Lisbon?

Like much of Europe in the summer, Lisbon is at its busiest (and most expensive) in July and August, when temperatures reach highs of 28°C with virtually no rain. To avoid the crowds and cost of high season, visit Lisbon in late spring or early autumn, when temperatures will still reach highs of around 20-25°C and the chances of rain are slim. With that in mind, the best months to visit Lisbon are April, May, June, September and October.
