There is plenty of historical context and interesting trivia too, without being too dry and overly academic (Secret Lisbon, anyone? Anyone??).
I do wish Time Out would be a bit more opinionated, like the Cadogan guides, sometimes the descriptions do oversell a couple of places (the Se and Castelo were particularly disappointing - and extremely overpriced, in the case of the castle).
The couple of errors mentioned in another review are extremely minor and the gripe about opening hours can be said about EVERY guidebook: circumstances change, places shut or move, it's something all travellers have to deal with. For instance, you can add a couple of euros to all the admission prices quoted!
BEST OF LISBON
Sunset from Esplanada de Igreja da Graca
Riding the old trams and funiculars at night, when they are lit up inside and less crowded
Gulbenkian Museum and surrounding gardens
A day out to Sintra
Oceanario Aquarium - expensive but well worth it
National Pantheon - lovely buildng, great rooftop views, interesting insight into Portugal's heroes too
Centro Cultural de Belem - free modern art collection, fascinating temporary exhibition on at the time
The whole Park of Nations development - shame Belem isn't as nice
The format, level of detail, history are all good but I thought I would highlight three of the main faults.
Other books (the AA Citypack and DK Top Ten provide pull out maps
The error on p246 referred to in a previous review is not a problem as the area in question is the subject of a larger scale map at pp250-251 with accurate information. I do agree with the other reviewer that the various pages do not connect or interlink as well they might
This harbour area is a must see but barely merits a mention. On this the AA Citypack was preferable.
No general guide is going to be able to cover restaurants and cafes in sufficient detail but Lisbon is not Italy and, if you are vegetarian, you need every assistance going. The dedicated vegetarian section is helpful but does not provide the practicalities set out in the case of other establishments
In summary, while there is much room for improvement, think very carefully in not investing in the TimeOut Guide before your visit to Lisbon

Excellent, well set-out guide which covers all the areas of information I need for my trip to Lisbon in March 2014.
Good maps and street index. Read more
Lisbon deserves better than this. Major sites were covered in a few sentences. Wikipedia gives much more detail for free. Read morePublished on 17 Mar. 2013 by David Mendoza
