Where to enjoy the sunny days?
Lisbon is the city of the seven hills, and has many places to visit on sunny days. Lisbon's ups and downs - and the good weather, of course - always invite us to leave home and enjoy the city. It doesn't matter if it's to drink a coffee or a beer, or if it's to walk, ice cream in our hands; when there's sun, we must enjoy it.
Santa Catarina Viewpoint
The viewpoint itself is under construction, but the alternative is just as good: enjoy the view in Noobai. Facing the 25 de Abril Bridge, here, you can see the clipping of the river through the buildings without the usual noise of a big city. We also note that, at night, the illuminated bridge gives the environment a different charm.
Parque das Nações
To walk and admire the Vasco da Gama Bridge at the end of a day's work. The mixed environment of businesses and residencies of Parque das Nações allows many locals to leave work, buy a few beers and sit on a bench overlooking the Tagus river, while talking with longtime friends. Whether it's closer to the marina or to the bridge, the sunset is wonderful and a beautiful excuse to escape the routine.
Ribeira das Naus
The whole space from the Terreiro do Paço to Cais do Sodré seems to have been thought for the summer days. Music, bars, banks and rebel stairs invite everyone to enjoy the sun. The environment is relaxed and the Portuguese easily crosses with other languages. After all, the view is breathtaking and captivates those who pass by, whether tourist or local. The Tagus is the main setting, with a beauty to never lose sight of. How about a drink at Quiosque Ribeira das Naus?
It's an emblematic site in the city of Lisbon. Belém can combine the history, nature and culture of the country in a single place. It's a favorite of the locals for the hottest days, not only for the breeze that's felt by the river, but also for the possibility of letting children play freely.
Portas do Sol
If we're talking about the sun, we couldn't help talking about Portas do Sol. There are several cafés and small sights in this center of Lisbon, and this is the perfect excuse for, even in the city center, enjoying an ancient area of Lisbon.
Caloust Gulbenkian Foundation
A suggestion for those who actually work at the business center of Lisbon: the Gulbenkian Gardens. Right next to Campo Pequeno and Praça de Espanha, this is a refuge - where we stop listening to the city. Besides being able to absorb the artistic collection of the foundation, the most restless will also be able to participate in various activities. In summer, it's also a great place to have a picnic.
