Some good reasons to visit Lisbon

Eating in Lisbon is much more unique than exploring incalculable arrangements of Portugal's cherished bacalhau (dried and salted cod fish; 365 formulas and checking!). While bacalhau à Brás (destroyed cod with onions, eggs and potatoes; a Bairro Alto unique) is never far, Lisbon's vital shoreline position on Europe's doorstep implies an abundance of crisp fish (octopus, fish, monkfish, shrimp, sardines, shellfishes, snails) runs the city's kitchens, from Michelin-featured eateries to gourmet-sustenance markets to innumerable corner tascas (bars). Top-review Alentejan meat allures with delicious steaks and gourmet burgers, and you'll discover everything from tempting Indian curries to real Moroccan couscous in the middle.

Modest alcohol and the nonattendance of open-holder laws implies Lisbon adores a night on the town! Try not to be tricked by Bairro's Alto's languid daytime feel – by night, these restricted cobbled paths change into one of Europe's most unruly drinking areas. Understudy plunges, conventional fado houses, upscale wine bars and LGBT problem areas cheerfully exist together among the obfuscated mess. In Cais do Sodré, Pink Street and environs are home to a portion of the city's exemplary dance club and rowdiest mixed drink bars, while trendier megaclubs extend along the waterfront from Santos to Santa Apolónia. Last call? Dawn!
