Our Euro trip in April included spending a few days in Lisbon, Portugal as our last stop before heading back to South Africa. It was my first time in Portugal and I definitely want to go back for a longer visit and more exploration. We just scratched the surface and I want to see more of what the city has to offer.
A few observations about the city before we move on to the photos:
- It is so picturesque and quaint, every building is photo worthy because of the tiling that the Portuguese use on the exterior of their buildings
- Lisbon is a small city, it has a population of less than 1 million and it feels like it
- I really enjoyed the food, especially the pastel de natas (a custard filled pastry)
- I don’t have many pictures of our 2nd day in the city because we woke up to torrential rain and it pretty much rained the whole day. On the day we left however, the weather was amazing!
- We experienced a bit of it, but I can bet my bottom dollar that the night-life is lit
- It is well-priced as compared to other popular EU cities, especially when it comes to drinks, food and tourist eactivities. We were not spending as much as we did in Paris
We had sundowners at the H10 Duque de Loulé hotel. The views were stunning!
On the rainy day we took some refuge at TimeOut market (so did all the other tourists!). It was a good vibe but totally packed!
Our final dinner was at Palace Chiado – it was such an amazing experience! Highly recommend.
