Lisboa /2

As I've mentioned before, about a month ago, I went to Lisbon with my parents and boyfriend. And we had a blast. And I want to show it.
Ribeira das Naus

The second day, we went to Belém. If you ever go to Lisbon, never skip this part of town. It's not that close to the historic centre but it's definitely worth the tram ride. It's got the Torre de Belém, the Ponte de 25. Abril (a copy of the Golden Gate Bridge in SF) but most importantly... it's got the pasteis de Belém. Thé. Best. Pastries. I. Ever. Tasted.

 We took the tram back and walked along to the Mercado di Ribeira (go in the morning, the market itself closes in the afternoon) and had a bite to eat. Along the Ribeira das Naus, we walked on to the Praça di Comercio and found the shopping area.

Bairro Alto
At night we went to the part of the old city with the most atmosphere: Bairro Alto. We had another delicious meal and searched for some Fado music but didn't find it (bummer). Anyway. after a drink at the hotel lobby we called it a night and prepared ourselves for the last night. But that's for next time. ;)
