There is no dearth of beautiful vistas or postcard perfect panoramas in the narrow & steep alleys of Lisbon. The city of seven hills offers brightness, quirkiness & beauty in every corner.
Here is a glimpse into this city of seven hills, from my camera lens!

Furniculars/Trams are a trademark of Lisbon. A ride on the namesake Tram 28 is a great way to take in the city. Elevator de Bica (Bica Furnicular) and Elevator Gloria, pictured below are other famous tram ways in the city. Photographing the graffiti adorned & colorful, the trams and walking along their pathways was a great way to explore Lisbon.
Expression through graffiti was everywhere in Lisbon.. not just on the trams, but even on subway walls, buildings, historic neighborhoods, even on tiles by pedestrian walkways. Here is a famous portrait of the history of Lisbon, depicted as a cartoon wall.
The hipster-chic vibe of the city was what made it so quirky & fun. There’s an entire street that is painted bright pink for starters…
The historic & colorful facades are a striking contrast to the above urban scenery
I couldn’t get enough of these vistas, ‘miradouro’ at the top of its seven different hills.
No matter the season of your visit, Lisbon is a visual treat!
