3. Walk hand-in-hand through Alfama’s cozy streets
Alfama’s streets are so narrow that brushing up against a partner while walking together can’t be helped at times. Duck into one of the tiny bars for a glass of wine, port or Ginja liqueur. Eat dinner accompanied with the melodic and melancholic sounds of fado, which has a sound so haunting that it can tug at the heartstrings of even non-Portuguese speakers. Alfama also has many tiny shops where lovers can buy each other trinkets and keepsakes of their time in Lisbon. Although much of Alfama is level to the river, there are plenty of stone staircases that lead to tucked away spots where kisses can be stolen against breathtaking backdrops.
