Meanwhile, there are clubs for the kids, baby equipment and late babysitting services. Check out all the details here. Top Tip: When in Lisbon, parents and children will enjoy visiting the old Alfama neighborhood with its tiny, twisting streets, live music and local eateries. For children obsessed with fairy tales, consider traveling to Sintra (a short train ride from Lisbon). This town literally looks like the setting for a fairy tale with castles and enchanted gardens. In fact, Hans Christian Andersen is known to have enjoyed visiting this destination.
