The 5 most enjoyable things to do in Lisbon with children according to We Heart Lisbon

Lisbon has secured a special place in our hearts as a family. The city is vibrant and full of charm, perfect for adventures with young children. Our kids love the city, the colors, the people, the way the city smells, and the narrow streets. They enjoy playing in beautiful parks such as Parque Eduardo VII. The Oceanário de Lisboa is a highlight of every visit. In addition to the many attractions, Lisbon offers a warm, welcoming atmosphere. The locals are exceptionally friendly and helpful, making traveling with children much easier. Everywhere we went, we found child-friendly restaurants and cozy cafés where our kids happily played while we enjoyed the delicious Portuguese cuisine.
