Algarve to Lisbon: Hidden Treasures and Breathtaking Views’s Figs on the Funcho.
If you’re planning a day trip to Lisbon from your stay at Algarve’s Figs on the Funcho, you’re in for a treat. The best way to explore Lisbon is on foot, at your own pace, to uncover the city’s hidden gems. And with the VoiceMap audio self-guided tour app, you can experience the city like a local. Graham and I highly recommend “Chiado to Principe Real” by Julie Fox and “Castelo de São Jorge and Bairro do Castelo” by Eo – Immersive Audio Tours for a truly immersive experience. Best of all, you can access a free self-guided tour on the app by downloading it now.
But that’s not all. Two stunning viewpoints near Lisbon Castle offer breath-taking panoramic views of the city. Miradouro das Portas do Sol provides a stunning view of Alfama district with the Tagus River in the background, while Miradouro de Santa Luzia offers a postcard-perfect view of the traditional, red-tiled roofs of houses and the Tagus River. Both viewpoints are accessible by foot and are popular spots to enjoy the sunset, making them a must-visit for anyone traveling to Lisbon.
So, whether you’re exploring the hidden treasures of Lisbon or soaking in the stunning views from the viewpoints, make sure to add these experiences to your itinerary for an unforgettable trip from Algarve to Lisbon.
