Where To Go Next: Lisbon, Says the American “Travel & Leisure” Magazine

Travel and Leisure magazine, Lisbon

In its August 2009 issue, the American “Travel & Leisure” magazine has chosen Lisbon for its regular “Where To Go Next” feature. It’s a 4-page article highlighting the best of the city, from classic sights to the latest attractions.
It points out Lisbon’s “provocative mix of forward-thinking design and centuries-old architecture” that is making the Portuguese capital move “into the spotlight.” The article then goes on to list examples of how the city is “embellishing its inimitable, gilded history with world-class venues for contemporary culture, art, and dining,” choosing to highlight Santos, the so-called “Design District.” It recommends the area’s best shops and eateries, and when it comes to accommodation it suggests stays at stylish hotels for all budgets, from the reasonably priced Vincci Baixa to the hip Fontana Park Hotel.
As for dining out, among the interesting choices it lists Sommer (already reviewed here), and Verde Perto, one of GoLisbon’s favorite but still relatively unknown caf├ęs by the Castle of St. George (great toasted sandwiches served with salad!).
The well-researched article is filled with excellent choices, which you may discover by picking up a copy of the magazine (it’s on newsstands in the U.S. and will soon be available internationally), or by reading it online at the magazine’s website: Where To Go Next: Lisbon.
