Hilton Villa Lisboa

On the edge of the cliff, left from the car park in Amoreiras chic shopping mall, right down to Rua de Campo de Ourique, you can find our little Hilton Pátio-Villa from great-grand-mother Júlia, a.k.a. Silk Patio (Pátio das Sedas). Let's do it!

More Lisbon Kid Friendly Ideas

How about a trip to the Marionette Museum
The former 18th century Bernardas Convent houses a lovely collection of over 1,000 puppets, including some dating from the 17th and 18th centuries - knights, princesses, devils, among other characters.

Most are from Portugal, while others came from Italy, New Zealand, Indonesia, India, and China. The museum explains the history of the art form and there are frequent puppet shows, making this an ideal attraction for families.

End your visit at the café.
Where: Rua da Esperança, 146 Lapa
How: Tram 25
When: 10AM-1PM, 2PM-6PM (Closed Mondays)

Alison loved the idea of the new apartment and I am please to say after a bit of a hiccup on the arrival day - they managed to go back across the bridge before turning back and parking in the garage.
"the apartment is suiting us perfectly and we are very happy. thank you for all your help that first day - we are well in the swing now with even charlie managing the odd bom dia and obrigado."
