Enjoy delicious cuisine on a romantic city break
Food is a huge part of romantic breaks in Lisbon; the city has an amazing variety of independent restaurants that are just waiting to be explored! Traditional Portuguese cuisine mainly consists of grilled fish and meat, cooked with delicious spices and served with fresh Mediterranean vegetables. You could start by heading to Chiado, an area located close to the Tagus River that offers excellent traditional Portuguese food, provided by a mix of both old and new establishments. For something a little more upmarket, wander or take a tram to Lapa. Alfama, the oldest district of the city, offers more restaurant choices, as well as attractive Moorish architecture and many fado bars - these bars play fado music, a traditional Portuguese genre that is typically quite melancholy.

Weekends in Lisbon are filled with music and dancing, and the hilltop district of Bairro Alto has the most to offer. You'll find everything from tiny jazz clubs to nightclubs playing the latest dance music here; the vibe is not to be missed, even on a romantic break. You can snuggle up to your partner in one of the bars that line the narrow streets, and dance together to Afro-house - a popular sound in Lisbon.
