  • The feeling is that we left friends of Amalia. The Museum has a wealth of details about the life and work of Amalia. Meet Chico was an even bigger surprise!

There is also a wonderful coffee, worth the natural red fruit popsicle! Before your visit, Miss a few minutes in the backyard of my dear Amalie.

  • It's moving. The visit is fast, but la.maison remained as she was Amalia time and people who take care of the place make a lot of efforts. A good moment of culture in Lisbon.

Where to stay in Lisbon

Check into one of Lisbon's grand city center hotels to position yourself well to explore the central historical districts on foot. To avoid the potentially high prices of some of the Old Town's central upscale hotels, try staying in a hostel instead. While some hostels have an upper age limit for their guests, they're affordable and oftentimes offer access to attractions on par with or better than bigger hotels. In the upper town, opt for one of the family-run bed and breakfasts, which provide affordable rooms and, as the name would suggest, include a meal as well.
