Earlier this spring we spent a weekend in Lisbon, Portugal. Oh my what a beautiful city. This was my first time there, but definitely not the last. Buildings are dressed in tiles, laundry drying in narrow alleys, great food, climate and friendly people.
There's lots of great restaurants. Pictured below is 'Pharmacia', a farmacy-themed restaurant integrated into the Pharmacy Museum just near Tagus river viewpoint.
Nestled in the heart of Lisbon's picturesque district: Alfama, we stayed our nights at boutique hotel Memmo Alfama. Once a shoe polish factory, this laidback and cozy little gem offers a chic little pool, great, clean and designed rooms, a fantastic breakfast with local flavors and the most magnificent views over Alfama and the Tagus river. Wouldn't mind staying here again and I can't recommend if enough!
