Lisbon: Places to Explore


The Modern City

The 10 parallel rows of trees along the Avenida da Liberdade, which was laid out in 1879, make Lisbon's downtown axis a pleasant place to linger, despite the traffic. Beyond it is the city's central park, Parque Eduardo VII, and then modern Lisbon, stretching into residential suburbs with the occasional attraction. It could take three hours to do justice to the Gulbenkian alone—especially if you have lunch there; add another for walking; and perhaps a fifth for shopping and a coffee.
