Lisbon for all the family
Lisbon is a perfect city in which to spend a few days with the children. It's welcoming and safe, with a mild climate and easy to explore on foot, besides having numerous activities designed especially for kids, both outdoors and indoors.
The whole family will surely enjoy a tram ride to explore the city, heading for the Castle of São Jorge, for a walk between the walls and battlements, conjuring up stories of fearless knights. In addition, the capital's parks and gardens are always a safe option. In the Lisbon Zoo, there are elephants, a monkey village, lions, tigers, crocodiles and even an area with several species of reptiles. You can watch a dolphin show, the feeding of the sea lions and take a ride on the cable car.
Another suggestion is Monsanto Park. In this true “lung of the city”, there is fun for the whole family, with footpaths, extreme sports and various playgrounds, such as the Indians Park, Alvito Park and Serafina Park, for using up your energy on the swings, slides and other rides.
In Parque das Nações, on the eastern side of the city, the Pavilhão do Conhecimento (Knowledge Pavilion) is an interactive science museum that is great fun. But the favourite is, without doubt, the Oceanarium, where the Earth’s various oceans are recreated. There are several garden spaces in the area, and you can rent a bike or take a cable car ride.
