Lisbon with kids: A Ride on the telecabine
One of my favorite place is probably the telecabine, that runs above the river’s edge at Parque das Nacoes. Flying over the river, you will see the Oceanarium (please visit it, it’s brilliant!), the MEO Arena and Vasco da Gama tower. Kids will love going up and down on the telecabine, it is always good look at the world from another point of view! Sometimes I have dizziness, I confess, but life is about going for adventures, so let’s go for a ride!
Lisbon with kids: Eat Pasteis de Nata
Did you ever tried Pasteis de Nata? They are like my favorite dessert! Authentic Portuguese recipe, the Pasteis are custard tarts with a rich egg custard nestled in shatteringly crisp pastry. Kids will love it! What’s better than a typical local recipe to taste the authentic atmosphere of a place like Lisbon?
Lisbon with kids: A ride on the Tram 28
Yes, I know, I told you before, but hey! Kids’ can’t miss a ride on the 28! Hop on early in the morning or late in the evening, to avoid the crowd. Go along the entire route of the tram, it will be a memorable time for children! This is an easy and fun way for kids to enjoy the city and don’t get too tired. Remember, Lisbon has several hills and climbs.
Lisbon is spread over seven hills so be prepared to be walking up and down hills a lot!
Don’t forget that streets of Lisbon are lined with distinctive cobbles, so it would be a bit difficult for prams with small wheels.
All cafes will have free tap water: always ask for a ‘copo de agua’, when ordering coffees and drinks!
There are few public toilets in Lisbon but all cafes will have toilets for emergency stops.
