Inserted in a classified historic district building and completely renovated in 2014
I can’t stand being without you anymore! I miss you so much already! I can’t wait to hold you in my arms again soon! I’m so happy you’re arriving tomorrow and I’ll be able to share with you everything that this fantastic city has to offer.
You are going to love Lisbon and I know you are especially going to love the apartment we’ll be staying at these days. It is in “the most beautiful street in the city”! A street without any cars, where there is a yellow Tram which goes up and down the street, setting the rhythm and the beating of this wonderful city.
The street is like a slanted sidewalk, full of little restaurants, shops, little bars and fruit shops, where tourists and locals mix in a unique setting. The location is perfect, right in the historical centre of Lisbon, in the Bairro da Bica, a typical neighbourhood which connects the Chiado and Bairro Alto to the Tejo river.
At the top of the street there is a magical belvedere with a breathtaking view over the city and the river, where people gather at the end of the day to watch the sunset accompanied by a nice drink in one of the esplanades/terraces one can find there, or just to lie on the grass.
The apartment is perfect and has got all the conveniences and comfort one can possibly need! I am writing to you from the balcony, from where I admire the city and the river and, where we will most definitely, toast to our encounter.
Tomorrow I will be at the airport when you arrive! We have many ways of getting back to the centre of town: There is a Subway (Metro) Station only 5 minutes away from our doorstep (Baixa-Chiado Station), there is also the Aero Bus at the end of our road, or we can opt for the taxi which isn’t expensive.
I can’t wait for you to get here so we can feast ourselves in this wonderful city! See you soon! Yours.
