In recent years Lisbon has become one of the most popular city travel destinations in Europe. For a good reason: Lisbon is safe, creative, lively and has a beautiful cityscape. Built on seven hills the city provides a breezy sea view wherever you are. The cityscape is dominated by ancient buildings like the impressive ruin of Castello São Jorge. The most charming way to tick off a few sights is by riding the number 28 yellow tram as it rumbles through Lisbon's prettiest and most historic streets.
Niche Junior says
We value our kids opinions - which is why we introduced Niche Junior, giving our little travellers a platform:
It was fun to ride up the steep hills on the tram. The castle was really great and we loved to sit on the old cannons and look over the city. But best of all when we are in Portugal is eating Tosta Mista.

Why is Lisbon perfect for families?
In Lisbon, the creative, the independent, the family-run is still the norm and not the exception. Strolling through neighbourhoods like Amoreiras you will find cosy cafes, inspiring shops, beautiful parks and unexpected museums. Dealt the coolest neighbourhood in Lisbon Príncipe Real is the most open-minded, bohemian corner of the city and the perfect place to relax in the shade of a tree and watch the world go by. A highlight for kids is the Oceanário de Lisboa with its impressive Aquarium and a variety of activities for the little ones.
