Lisbon: Here's Why

View more products from: Herb Lester Travel Guides


This guide allows for ambling, for wandering and for looking around Lisbon’s beautiful tiled streets. We enjoy views from rooftops, parks and gardens, take a ferry across the Tagus, explore museums and galleries, and yes, we stop to linger over food and drink too.

Our 33 entries encompass the classic and contemporary: traditional custard tarts of Portugal, canned fish, brutalist architecture and a factory repurposed as shops and offices.

• Designed by Brad Woodard
• A3 (297x420mm) folded to A6 (105x148mm)
• Litho-printed in England on recycled paper



A Word from Herb Lester Associates


Most guides try to tell you everything there is to know about a city, we just tell you how to enjoy it. It is our aim to show the reader what makes a place distinctive, to shed light on obscure locations as well as revisiting well-known ones with a fresh perspective.

We research each city the old-fashioned way: asking friends, acquaintances, cab drivers and concierges for their tips and then walking, tasting, sipping, and peering into doorways and down alleys. We turn that research into a compact guide with enough suggestions to keep you entertained, with a list of shops, bars, restaurants, cafés, galleries, museums and parks, each one carefully described.
