Tiles, Tarts, Trams and "Tan-gible Value" - It's Lisbon

Travel Talk with Ed Finn

Saturday, 21 August 2021 - 12 minutes

Travel Talk is LIVE from Lisbon today.  Lisbon is the place on everyone’s lips at the moment with and its glossy tiled facades, red roofs, exploding food scene and sunny warm beaches. Now a hub and top of the list for Digital Nomads and work-cationers. The food has depth far beyond the famous pastéis de nata (custard tarts) that are so popular and loved.  Lisbon is an old city full of history; from the 12th-century Moorish castle that dominates the skyline to the magnificent 16th-century Manueline monastery of Jerónimos. 18th-century Lisbon was rebuilt after much of the city was destroyed in the devastating earthquake in 1755

Lisbon, unlike so much of the world, has refused to go global and it remains refreshingly Portuguese. Lisbon sits with its back to Europe and proudly stands independent and unique while still remaining intrinsically European. Value for money really stands out here.  Great accessibility with flights from Dublin with Aer Lingus, TAP and Ryanair.   Weekend flights in Sept are available from €90 return. #VisitPortugal  #VisitLisboa
