The Azulejos are a prominent expression in Portugal.
Learn Portuguese for better communication
Traveling by land has an incredible secret is to see the whole landscape in the first row. We went from Vigo (Spain) to Porto and then from there we visited Lisbon. I'll tell you more below.
Q & A
What would you have changed?
A longer stay to visit more Lisbon and rest in Porto
Anything go wrong during the trip?
During peak hours the traffic is usually stressful, I recommend doing visits on foot and taking the subway.
How was the food?
Solar 31 de Alfama - Lisboa Grenache - Lisboa Kafeine - Coffee & Brunch - Lisboa
What tips would you give a friend?
I went in the summer and the truth was that the weather helped a lot, it is never too late to put on good shoes, water and enjoy a great walk.
Buying exclusive coffee in Portugal is an invaluable treasure.
Walk up to the viewpoints by Metro or rent a bike.
At that time I was carrying a battery-powered Canon camera and went on several tours that I did without a battery. Bring an auxiliary or your smartphone or camera battery charged.
My uncle usually travels to Portugal often so some clients offer their home hospitably, we use Booking and referrals. Airbnb also works very well.
