A long-awaited weekend in Lisbon has come to an end! Portugal's capital has been on my (Yasmin's) bucket list for a long time, and my expectations were sky high. Spoiler: They were exceeded by far! Here is the first part of our blog series about the hottest weekend destination in Europe right now.


The official Lisbon energy trip
The purpose of our Lisbon trip was basically to gather as much positive energy as possible. I got to experience the city with one of my best friends, Linnéa, who was fortunate enough to be there on her third visit. A real highlight of our stay was our Friday afternoon wine-stop at design hotel Memmo Alfama’s rooftop bar, located in the historical Alfama district. The hotel is situated only a stone's throw away from the Cathedral and the São Jorge Castle, and is entered through a quiet cross-street. We quickly slipped in to the peaceful oasis, escaping the 30-degree (Celsius) heat.
Memmo Alfama is part of Memmo Hotels chain which has three hotels in Portugal, two in the capital and one in Sagres, Algarve. Learn more about the Memmo Hotels and destinations here.


Memmo's rooftop bar with a view over Lisbon
We were certainly not mistaking when we anticipated that the magical view, combined with the chic hotel design and a glass of good wine, would give us the energy boost we had been longing for. Gazing out over the heights of Lisbon with the cooling breeze in your neck, and a terrace partly in the shade, with a glass of wine in your hand was the perfect activity to begin our trip with.
The trendy hotel gets a big plus for its friendly staff. Me (Yasmin, to the left) with my friend Linnéa (to the right) with Diogo, who works at Memmo Alfama and made our visit both memorable and fun!
According to the website, the hotel was considered by wallpaper® magazine as one of the 48 new world's best urban hotels in 2014, and we clearly see why!
