Lisbon's once fusty, if charming, image has had a massive facelift over the past decade, though much remains to be done to preserve the city's heritage. In the more recent past, there have been other changes too. Thanks to the long-awaited arrival of cheap flights, but also to cruise ships and a booming conference business, Lisbon recently overtook the Algarve in tourist visitor numbers. Locals are keen to welcome more. Euro 2004 was the latest in a series of big events proving their talent for hospitality and - surprising to many lisboetas themselves - organisation. This guide brings you bang up to date with the changes, while helping you find those corners of the city unaffected by them.

    While I have been an happy timeout guide customer in the past, I was extremely disappointed by this guide, and sometime amazed by its errors.The most amazing one is about the bridge: Vasco da Gama is located inEast Lisbon, while this guide described it in details and with awrong picture in Belem (West Lisbon). The picture is on page 85 andthis is NOT Vasco da Gama bridge!!Among the other wrong information:- misplaced tube stations which left me wondering for tens of minutes(I was luckily rescued by a local map I got there)- the highly advised tram 28 is instead 28E (28 is a bus that travelsa completely different route!)- while I understand that prices change, this guide (printed less thana year ago) reports taxi prices from the airport at 14 euros, while itis now more than 18 euros: an outrageous increase or an outrageousmistake?It seems that this guide is not a 2007 edition, but a much olderone...On a positive side, the guide to restaurants is amazingly good.

    I found it to have lots of errors. Some small (pictures with incorrect titles), some just bad editing (page numbers in the index not matching the page numbers in the actual article) and some just daft or lazy (having a 3-4 year out of date tube map). I have to say it is the worst guidebook I have ever used. It was almost a hindrance to the trip as you stopped trusting any of the information in it.

    I love the Time Out city guides, and this one is as good as any of them. Lisbon is a wonderful city and I loved my visit there, travelling almost everywhere by tram. However, a major weakness of the maps in this guidebook is that they don't have the tram routes on them. For this you'll need the Lisbon (DK Eyewitness Travel Guide) or perhaps the The Rough Guide Map Lisbon. In fact, the Lisbon (DK Eyewitness Travel Guide) is probably a better guidebook, but irritatingly I prefer this Time Out guide for aesthetic reasons!
