Lisbon is one of the world’s most romantic cities according to Food & Wine.
The magazine from the American Express elected 25 cities “where the vistas, architecture and food can inspire passion and even marriage proposals.” Lisbon is on that list, so what about consider a visit to the Portuguese capital now that Valentine’s Day is coming?
Lisbon is one of the world’s most romantic cities due to the unique way that it combines its glorious past with the present, turning it into one of Europe’s best cultural destinations. While monuments in Lisbon express the country’s glorious past, the hustle and bustle of the city reflects the cosmopolitan ambience of today. Lisbon also has the added advantage of being one of the most affordable European capitals. After all, “Although Lisbon embraces the past, its glorious old buildings house new restaurants, clothing boutiques and museums that have made the city one of Europe’s hippest—and most affordable—cultural destinations.”
For a perfect and romantic getaway, Food & Wine suggests a stay at Bairro Alto Hotel as the rooms of this five star hotel “blend traditional Portuguese design with luxe touches…”. Bairro Alto hotel is located in Bairro Alto, Lisbon’s trendy district. Of course there are many other hotels in Lisbon, suitable for all pockets.
As romance also combines with a wonderful meal, Food & Wine recommends Restaurante 560, named after the identity code of the Portuguese products and brands. Thus, of course, in this restaurant guests may enjoy the delicious Portuguese gastronomy.
Both Bairro Alto Hotel and Restaurante 560 are magnificent choices, however Lisbon has plenty other options on what it comes to hotels and restaurants.
