Tuesday, 05 May 2009 14:55Lisbon has a great deal for those visiting with children. Lisbon is a perfect city to spend a few days with the children. It is safe and friendly, the climate is favorable and it is easy to get around on foot. And that is all in addition to the countless activities and facilities, both outdoors and indoors, especially put on for children. If it is good weather, take to the capital’s parks and gardens. Try the city zoo with its dolphin shows and lion feeding or for a better view of the animals, ride the cable car. In Monsanto, the city’s forest, let the kids run off high spirits on the swings, slides and other amusements of the Park of Índios. And if the day is a little cloudy, there is a full range of museums and libraries holding courses and workshops. The Calouste Gulbenkian Planetarium will tell them all they want to know of the stars above. And the Pavilion of Knowledge will reveal the latest in scientific advances in an especially child-friendly manner. However, the favorite is undoubtedly the Lisbon Oceanarium for an evening spent in the unforgettable company of sharks. The largest Oceanarium in Europe, the interactive Knowledge Museum or the Zoo. In Sintra our suggestion goes to visit the original Toy's Museum, in Lourinhã enjoy a museum where families can learn about dinosaurs or pay a visit to the Natural Monument of Dinosaur Footprints in the Serra de Aire Nature Park. Don't miss the "Portugal dos Pequeninos" (Portugal in miniature) in Coimbra and the "bracalânida" amusement park in Braga. Enjoy also a safari at the "Badoca Park", and have fun at one of the many Aqua Parks or the Zoo Marine in the Algarve region. And for the oldest ones the Adventure Park is also an option.
