Portugal’s capital of Lisbon is ideal for families who want a beach holiday or travellers who want to experience the vast history of the country. There are lots of attractions including a number of relics and monuments so it is best to travel around on foot. Stop at the Torre de Belem, a Gothic tower which dates back to the 1500s, or view the city from the top of the Aqueducto das Aguas Livres, the city’s famous aqueduct. Try some of the locals’ favourite seafood at O Arrastao restaurant or stop at the LX Factory which contains a number of shops, restaurants and nightclubs. Plan ahead and follow some safety tips to ensure you have the best trip possible.
Safety tips when visiting Lisbon
Travellers are generally safe in Lisbon and there is a low instance of violent crime. However, it is still wise to exercise caution in certain areas of the city. Avoid travelling on trains late at night as there are opportunists who may steal your belongings. Also, avoid certain areas such as the alleys, Bairro Alto and Cais do Sodre. It is also best to get some advice about which nightclubs to visit before you go as some have a poor reputation. Be vigilant when visiting ATMs and be sure not to wave cash around or have your wallet on display. Of course, you may even have an injury or accident that is someone else’s fault. If this does happen, either during your flights, transfers, at your hotel or on pre-booked trips then you can claim for a cash payout from the company.
