Lunch after visiting Gulbenkian

On a Sunday, visit Gulbenkian museum (free) and listen to the concert in the museum.

Afterwards, you can have lunch in the Gulbenkian’s cafeteria (excellent food – we have had that before) … or walk to Conde de Valbom street and go ‘local’ – great food at great prices. Open on Sunday, the Restaurant Valbom is a sought-after place for the families on Sunday.

Stroll afterwards, along República Avenue, towards Saldanha and have a pastry and coffe at Versailles – one of the old ‘musts’ of Lisbon.

Casa de Fernando Pessoa

If you are an admirer of this Portuguese poet … this is an interesting place to visit: the house where he lived. Campo de Ourique is also a hub of shops and an old part of Lisbon…

Raffi’s Bagels- in Campo de Ourique

We had a delicious warm bagel after we visited the House of Fernando Pessoa.

Up from Jardim da Estrela – ‘Estrela(Star) Garden’ – great to visit on Saturday morning, as there is a handicrafts market.

The best Italian food!

About 40€/person or more … but worth it! Bairro alto area.
