Hi everybody. My name is Alice.

Im a content creator and youtuber from Lisbon, Portugal.

Today, Ill be guest vlogging for EF.

I was born and raised in Lisbon. Ive lived here all my life.

In fact, I think this is the most beautiful city in the entire world. Obviously!

Today, Im going to show you guys around the city and share some of my favourite spots with you.

Lets go!

Right now, were at Miradouro de São Pedro de Alcântara,

which is one of the best and most popular viewpoints in Lisbon.

From where I stand, you can see a huge part of the city, including a castle on the top of the hill.

That castle is called Castelo São Jorge, which means St. Georges Castle.

You can actually go up there and, if you do, you will have another amazing view over Lisbon.

Write that down because its a must-go.

From here, you can also see the Tagus River, which is also amazing.

The EF school in Lisbon is near this area, so you can actually walk from the school to this viewpoint.

This is a great place.

Its free to come here with your friends and colleagues for a drink at the end of the day,

to have a quick lunch, or even just to take some pictures.

One of the best things that this city has is its light, obviously.

Now, since were so close to downtown, were going to walk there. Follow me!

We are downtown in "Baixa-Chiado" right now. This is probably my favourite part of the city.

This is always a very busy area with a lot of tourists visiting because its a very historical place.

Also, if you like outdoor shopping, we have plenty of shops here and amazing restaurants and cafés as well.

Im a little bit hungry now, so were going to take a break

and Im going to show you guys one of the best places for brunch in Lisbon. Follow me!

Now that were done, Im going to show you one of the best features this city has, which is the river.

Here we are by the Tagus River and, as you can see, it has the most amazing view,

and its a beautiful, sunny day, which helps.

This area right here is called "Belém". Its a wonderful place for you to come to,

especially during the weekend and on sunny days like today.

Its the perfect place for you to have a walk, a jog, a work out or,

at the end of the day, you can come here for a drink.

You can find many restaurants, cafés and even museums, like this one.

Its the perfect place to just hang out.

Over there, you can see the most iconic bridge in Lisbon.

Its called Ponte 25 de Abril, which means 25th of April Bridge.

If you cross it, youll find amazing beaches just 20 minutes away by car from Lisbon.

During the summer, its the best program.

Also, if you go up that statue over there, which is called Christ the King,

youll observe the most amazing view over Lisbon, so its also a must-go.

Lastly, to finish off this video, its the end of the day, and that means sunset time.

This place is also by the river and its called "Ribeira das Naus".

Its the most amazing place to have a drink at the end of the day

and observe the most beautiful sunset over Lisbon.

So, thats exactly what were going to do: have a drink and watch the sunset!

I really hope you liked this video.

Thank you so much, EF, for having me and I hope to see you guys around Lisbon!
