Q & A
What would you have changed?
Maybe get to visit some other cities around Lisbon.
Anything go wrong during the trip?
Missing our connecting flight for Lisbon.
How was the food?
The food was great, there was a bit of everything in the trip, you can find any type of food in all cities, more than enough options. I recommend the Belem cakes, which you can find practically anywhere in Lisbon.
What tips would you give a friend?
Check the weather the days before you go so you know what type of clothing its best to pack.
Depends a bit on when you’re travelling since it depends on the seasons, but it its late September, make sure you check how the weathers been the days before; pack light clothing but a nice jacket in case it gets colder. Aside from that, just make sure you have comfortable shoes.
I am a fan of walking, so mainly that. If you’re able to, rent a car, it will be worth it.
I make most of my reservations on Expedia or directly on the hotel websites.
