Really Useful City Guide

Reviewed on July 25, 2022

Whilst many people say you can use your phone to get around a city, I still like to carry a book that gives a quick snap shot of a city’s history, and where the highlights are to be found. Lisbon is a great city to walk around, and public transport is FANTASTIC. Highly recommend using this as your tour guide. The pullout map also very good which shows the metro routes too.
