WHAT ABOUT SPENDING SOME DAYS IN LISBON?
Have you already been to Lisbon?
If your answer was no, what about visiting us this autumn?
If your answer was yes, what about returning and spending some time with us this time?
The Lisbon CS Organization Team would like to invite you for a international meeting that we are organizing between the 28th and 30th of November.
It's going to be a great opportunity for you visiting Portugal, making new friends and have a lot of fun in a beautiful city.
Do you need more reasons for grabbing your backpack and comming to visit us? Ok. Here we go...
Lisbon, the Portuguese capital, is spreaded along the north bank of the River Tagus, which meets the ocean here offering amazing views.
It's one of the few European capitals with both a river and a coastline. The city is always ready to welcome it's visitors.
Lisbon has many important Manuelino Style monuments shining in the light, such as the "Torre de Belém" and the "Mosteiro dos Jerónimos".
The modern leisure area of the "Parque das Nações" proves that Lisbon still maintains its close links with the river today.
In contrast to this, you can visit the picturesque medieval quarters of Alfama and Mouraria, above which stands the castle. This castle, matched by Bairro Alto on the other hill, leads down to the downtown city center known as the Baixa Pombalina.
Lisbon is a city that is full of life. Here people have an exuberant party spirit, doing things spontaneously for the pleasure of spending time in the company of others.
And for this purpose the best place is the "Bairro Alto" which dates back to the 16th century but is today one of the city's most animated quarters, with trendy bars, restaurants and shops.
In Lisbon you can experience the traditional and relaxed atmosphere of a Fado House. Or, if you've still got enough energy left, pop into the various bars, discos and dance until the early hours.
Lisbon has historical quarters like Alfama, Castelo and Mouraria, Bairro Alto, Chiado, Bica and Baixa. Some of them have maintained its Arab structure, with its labyrinthine streets, courtyards and lanes.
For those interested in history, Lisbon has a rich and colorful seafaring heritage.
Filmed, sung and described by artists and visitors from all over the world, the famous light of Lisbon is the best guide to understanding this city of contrasts.
Besides all these reasons it would be a honor for us, couchsurfers from Lisbon, if you decide to join us for some days and share some moments of joy.
The meeting will take place of course in Lisbon and we're preparing some activities for all the participants of this international event and we will give you more information about these activities very soon.
If you liked the idea we recommend you start searching for flights as you can find the best prices booking in advance.
