Today I really want to share my experiences I had when I travelled to Lisbon, Portugal. It was my first time going to the country, and I absolutely loved it. It also was my first trip with the boyfriend, and we had an amazing time together. Let me take you along!
Day 1: Arrival
Since we are both students, we didn’t want to spend unnecessary money. We chose a simple hotel, and adjusted our flights to the price. It was cheaper for us to book an extra night, than to take a plane in the early morning. So we decided to leave a night earlier and book an evening flight. It was like a 100 euros cheaper! You should definitely keep that in mind when traveling.
Day 2: Rossio, Baixa Chiado, Baixa Pombalina, Rua Augusta, Praça de Commercio, Castelo Sao Jorge, Alfama
We did a lot on this day! Luckily, everything is very close to each other. Our hotel was very close to all the sightseeing as well. We did all of this stuff in no rush, because we were still on a vacation.
Day 3: Belèm
On this day, we took the train to another district of Lisbon. It was a bit further away than the other districts, but definitely worth it.
Day 4: Praça das Naçoés
This is a new district in Lisbon. It was built for the expo in 1998.
Day 5: Cascais, Sintra
On our last day we wanted to relax a bit so we decided to take the train to a small village close to Lisbon, Cascais. It was an authentique village with a really cute beach. Afterwards, we travelled a bit further to see Sintra, a fairytale like village with lots of castles.
On day 6, we left early in the morning for departure, back to Belgium. I had an amazing first trip with my boyfriend, and a lot of them will follow in the future. Lisbon is a must-see, it is so beautiful!
That was it for today everyone! I hope you enjoyed reading.
Have you ever been to Lisbon?
See you next time!
