It is also a place which has many fun plans to do

In 2021 I took a road trip with my best friend from Porto to Lisbon and I will share my highlights about these cities below. They both have an amazing atmosphere, great universities that keep the cities young, and provide plenty of opportunities to do fun things. This goes wonderfully with the historical architecture of the towns, influenced among others by the neoclassical Romanesque, Gothic, Manueline, Renaissance, Baroque and Rococo.
