Lisbon by @rirds

Our journey around the world continues and we have reached the Capital of Portugal – Lisbon, a stunning city with tons of charm. This is the hometown of the inspiring Instagram profile Rita Santos, @rirds. Rita has been an influencer since 2013 and when she’s not at the beach or planning the next great looking outfit she is working at the Lisbon airport. Here is her best hidden spots.


YOUR BEST MUST-DO’S IN LISBON?  I think that you should start with Avenida da Liberdade, a beautiful avenue in the center of Lisbon. At the end of the avenue you have the famous Starbuck of Rossio, one of the most beautiful Starbucks in the world if you ask me. To see our beautiful city from above you should definitely go up in the Santa Justa Elevator and don’t forget to go down to Praça do Comércio near the river where you can find a lot of nice hangouts and restaurants. Last but not least you should go and visit the Jerónimos Monastery and Belém tower. Next to it you will find the best Pastel De Nata – a famous Portuguese pastry, no one ever leaves Lisbon without trying them.

ON WHAT DO YOU SPEND THE MOST MONEY? Clothes and tickets for summer festivals.


WHAT DO YOU DO ON A DAY OFF? I always go to the beach, even if the weather isn’t the best.


ANY TIPS FOR TAKING A SELFIE? You’ve probably heard it before, but the most important thing is to have the perfect light.
