Detailed Description

Lisbon’s topography does not initially seem conducive to traveling with kids. A city of cobbled streets built upon seven hills may seem daunting with a stroller or noisy toddler, but Lisbon is easy to maneuver. The locals love kids and will happily humor them. This is a city where families hang out together into the evenings at atmospheric squares and cafes. Playgrounds and parks dominate the city with space for children to run around almost everywhere you go.

This is a wonderful city for the whole family and a particularly impressive destination when you are traveling with young kids. Handcrafted to celebrate the best of Lisbon for families, this one-week itinerary is full of unique activities and experiences. You can discover history and culture with treasure hunts and attractions that mix beautiful architecture with places for children to play. Journeys will also show you Lisbon in a slow and hassle-free way.

On day one, you will get a local orientation, which will include the excellent Time Out Market of Lisbon. On day two, you will go on a treasure hunt of Sao Jorge Castle before riding the tram between the city’s distinctive neighborhoods. Jeronimos Monastery and the historical highlights of Belem will begin day three and will be followed by an afternoon at the beach. You will then visit Sintra Palace and indulge in a woodland picnic on day four. The amphibious hippo will take center stage on day five before Europe’s largest aquarium completes your week in Lisbon. Expect to travel slow, absorb the atmosphere, and discover the city.
