Eu adoro Lisboa

Lisbon, PortugalLisbon is smaller than Boston in population (550, 000 in the city limits and nearly 3 million in the region), but it feels much larger and certainly more worldly. Just like Rome, Lisbon was built on seven hills – some of which are so high and steep you wouldn’t believe it; walking the city will give you a leg workout so don’t feel guilty about eating all the pastel de nata that you like.

We stayed in Bairro Alto which in addition to being popular with tourists also is home to most of the gay bars, nightlife and the gay owned and operated, The Late Birds, where we ended up staying. Below is a picture from our room overlooking their private back patio, garden and pool; a perfect place to relax.The Late Birds, Lisbon, Portugal, gay travel

Just down the street from The Late Birds was a funky outdoor bar that was located at the top of a parking garage called Park Rooftop Bar.  The place has no signage and on our first visit we initially wondered if we were in the right place. Sergio and I enjoyed this place so much we went here for an evening cocktail and to watch the sun set over Lisbon (shown below) several times. Lisbon, Portugal, Park Rooftop BarLisbon, PortugalLisbon, PortugalLisbon, PortugalLisbon, Portugal
