This pocket-sized full-colour guide is designed for short-break walking holidays in Lisbon and around the capital using the excellent public transport network.
Even ‘non-walkers’ will appreciate the large-scale city plans and maps, descriptions of the sights, and recommendations for restaurants in Lisbon and other tourist centres like Sintra and Cascais.
For each suggested restaurant there is a photograph of the décor and one of their dishes, sample menu, price guide, opening times, and a recipe for one of their specialities.
Other sections include: planning your trip, logistics on arrival, local markets and specialities, glossary of local food terms, and a restaurant mini-vocabulary.
A special feature is the emphasis on natural local foods suitable for those with food intolerances.
All recipes have been made by the authors and are known to ‘work’.
This is not a city guide, but it doesn’t pretend to be — it’s a walking guide with Lisbon as a base. I really enjoyed using the book and doing the walks. Non-specialist guidebooks like Lonely Planet/Rough Guide don’t give details of any walking routes outside the city, so a book like this is great… (ESS, Amazon)
I spent four entire days in and out of Lisbon with this book as my guide during Easter. (HH, Amazon)
