Instagram Travel Guide to … Lisbon

Maybe it’s all the sunshine, or the open spaces and never-ending views around every corner, but Lisbon doesn’t feel like other capital cities. Wandering the steep cobbled streets past tile-clad buildings and little shops that look like they’ve been there for 100 years can make you feel like you’re in a time warp.

Is Lisbon's Hottest Hangout the Future of the Office?

Travel up to the first floor of Lisbon’s 19th-century Mercado da Ribeira food market, up a set of stairs topped with red and yellow Perspex, and you’ll find a pretty cool place to work. Walking into Second Home Lisboa, the first thing you see is the bar. The next is the view from windows that line the space: on one side, the market where women in aprons sell fruit and vegetables, fish and legs of ham; on the other, the vast Tagus River glittering in the sun.
