Truth be told: Autumn has already arrived but the time has come to face reality, or the season: goodbye beach, hello city, goodbye heat, hello rain? If you are not yet ready to face what is coming, despite the fact that the days are already getting shorter and shorter, we give you some ideas to take advantage of the autumn to make everything easier. Who said autumn was boring? Decide now how you will make the most of the season.
The cultural agenda in Lisbon is finally starting to recover its pre-pandemic rhythm. It is true that nothing is the same, nothing else will be the same, but while we can embrace a controlled normality we must do it – for the sake of our sanity and in the name of culture and artists. Until the end of the year there are a series of exhibitions that deserve our close look, many of which have been postponed in the calendar and pushed into the autumnal agenda of museums. Take note of these exhibitions in Lisbon that are worth seeing.
2. Have a delicious hot chocolate
Creamy, more liquid but intense, with or without whipped cream on top, hot and sweet. If what really warms your soul (and your hands) is the chocolate in a liquid version, this is the right time to run all the little chapels in search of a cup of steaming chocolate and catch up with the sweet tooth. Here we give you a list of places to drink hot chocolate in Lisbon with a degree of cocoa more or less high, with rum and even orange liqueur. More or less sweet, these mugs are a surefire shot to cure all ills. If you prefer a chocolate or tablet version, you can find out here the best chocolate shops in Lisbon.
3. Exchange the sand for the gardens
No more beach. And if even the washing of the baskets is vintage, until it starts raining it is garden time. Even with a few degrees less on the thermometer. Discover the best parks and gardens to play with the kids, read a book or have a picnic. Anything but staying at home is worth it, but always with all the care that you must have in this new world.
