We don’t often see couples with kids visiting big cities, do we? Traveling with your whole family can be overwhelming but we know it can be done and we’ll show you how.
1. Take a worry-free trip
Book private tours with local guides!
It is very important to have a guide who knows his way around town or which monuments are worth your money. Also taking a private tour means that you can plan each day according to your interests and specific needs, something that is essential when you have kids.
2. Everyone matters
One thing that our travel experts have learnt since they started planning vacations trips for couples with kids is to tailor their itinerary to suit every family member, not just the child.
3. Take your time
Although we know that you want to get the most of your day and see all the highlights, it’s very important to remember that traveling slowly gives you the opportunity to immerse yourself in a new culture and local life style.
4. Discover together
Don’t miss out on taking some time of your day to discover local areas, taste some delicious local food and learn the language by talking with the local people. This is something that your kids will never forget.
5. Have fun
Don’t forget to ask yourself why you travel with your kids. At the end of the day you just want to have fun and make travel memories that will last forever.
Here’s our suggestion for a perfect day in Lisbon, for couples with kids:
Your guide will pick you up at your hotel and drive you to Miradouro da Nossa Senhora do Monte, one of the most beautiful view points in the city. A place where you can enjoy a lovely panoramic view over Lisbon and the Tagus river.
After, you can hop on the Lisbon tram 28 that will drive you through the narrow streets and alleys of the oldest districts in Lisbon. A fun way to have a glimpse of what neighborhood life looks like.
Step out at the Miradouro das Portas do Sol to visit Alfama.
Exploring Alfama is fascinating! From winding cobblestoned streets leading you to dead ends and private courtyards to colorful buildings and ancient Fado houses, you will be amazed.
Walk towards Praça do Comércio, Lisbon’s largest square situated along the Tagus river and for centuries the city’s main entrance.
Pass under the arch situated at the entrance of the plaza and walk along rua Augusta towards Pedro IV (Rossio) square. Along the way will see many souvenirs shops and have many restaurants options. Your tour guide will show you the restaurant with the best Portuguese tidbits in town.
Take the afternoon to visit Belém. Not only is where you will find the most important monuments in Lisbon; the Belém Tower and the Jerónimos Monastery but it’s where your search for the best Pastel de Nata will end!
This pastry is originally from a traditional coffee shop called Pastéis de Belém and supposedly they still make the best Pastel in town.
Lisbon is beautiful any time of day but the sunsets are particularly mesmerizing.
