Lisbon during the Easter holidays ? It is always a very good idea to travel. If you’ve ever been there as a couple, it’s a whole different story if you’re planning a family trip to Lisbon. The rules are indeed different :
To illustrate our point, we take the example of Shenae Grimes Beech, from the blog The Damn thing. They offers us a nice video with their children during a stay in Lisbon. Their planning was quite classical, they made the must-see in Lisbon while listening to their children. But we realize that their family activities in Lisbon could very well be those of an ordinary adult tourist. The best reward would be that your children would not stop talking about Lisbon once the holidays are over.
A question then follows : what activities in Lisbon can awaken children, leaving them with an unforgettable experience ? Until now, their travel adventure has lacked the pep and excitement of an activity that would leave them stunned. Today, the VisitmyLisbon team offers you a new way to discover Lisbon with your kids !
Lost in charming Lisbon, the children look for in search of the hidden treasure of the great explorer Vasco de Gama. Equipped with an illustrated notebook, they will have to complete several challenges.
Who are they for ? Families with kids between 5 and 10 years old. Our classic tours for teenagers are perfectly adapted because they are tailor-made. We take great pleasure in offering surprises for the older children. Also, the tone for talking about important subjects is nothing like that of a typical school guide. We’re young and we’re on a roll. We wish to change the preconceptions that some people may have about this profession.
Who will guide you during this visit ? Rossana, Béki or Aimée.
They will give you smiles and energy. All in all, you will have understood that this tour is a playful break that is meant to be accessible.
What we want to offer with this tour for kids is to pamper them by occupying them with sensory activities, while allowing them to discover the history of Portugal. Here is the testimony of Anne who came in February 2020 :
« During a brief visit to Lisbon, we spent a good two hours in the company of Aimée. The whole family (2 parents, 3 children 11, 5, and 2 years old) was delighted, we walked around the old town (Mouraria, Graça, Alfama). The tour was fun and relaxed, at a pace that was easy for everyone, we still learned and observed a lot of things. Aimée was very attentive to the kids. I recommend her ! »
It is also necessary to think about keeping kids more specifically involved :
These fun activities can be done without any restrictions. They are part of Lisbon’s charm.
Portugal is a small country where you can easily discover it in a few days. The roads are good and safe. With a volkswagen van fully equipped for a family (max 2 adults & 3 children), you will be able to write a wonderful story with the little ones. Entirely renewed, each VW camper van is designed for your comfort. You will live an exceptional adventure with your loved ones but in serenity. On the programme of the trip ? Sunsets on deserted beaches, epic villages on rocky spurs, varied landscapes, abundant nature, that’s basically what awaits you. From €50 per night only !
There are not many family-friendly hotels in Lisbon, but the city is no exception :
The benefit of renting a flat is having enough space for the whole family. Everybody knows Airbnb nowadays, we don’t need to introduce them. Property owners also offer the rental of very comfortable equipped flats.
Among them we find :
