A few months ago, I took a trip to Portugal. I spent most of my time in Lisboa. The city is magnificent! Very laid back and welcoming. During my visit, we stayed in Barrio Alto. This neighborhood was party central. Especially on the block our Airbnb was located on. Every night there were crowds of people, mostly tourist and young Lisboans. The energy was always pure and positive. Each night we would fall asleep to drumming and signing coming from the streets.
I look forward to going back there!
Below are some of my recommendations:
Se de Lisboa
25 de Abril bridge (only by sailboat)
Castelo de Sao Jorge
Feira da ladra (flea market for the vintage junkies)
Miradouros (all of them)
Rent a tuk-tuk
Take a train ride to Cascais (spend at least a night there)
