On my way back from Marrakech I decided to make a quick stop in Lisbon. Libson, Portugal’s capital city is the kind of place you come expecting nothing in particular but surprised at what it has to offer. Where I stayed - Residencial Florescente Lisbon
Set in a charming townhouse, this simple bed-and-breakfast is a 3-minute walk from both the nearest metro stop and the Lisboa - Rossio train station.. The rooms are small, but they are clean, quiet and neatly decorated. It is the location that is the charm of the hotel. When you walk out the door you're immediately in the bustling pedestrian walkway that goes past tons of restaurants and cafes. The hotel is not luxurious but it has everything you need for a good night's sleep and a great start for the day.
The Pena Palace
The Pena Palace is located in Sintra - about a 40min drive outside of Lisbon. If you're in Lisbon you should definitely go and check it out. Go early if you plan to visit because it gets really crowded. I took an Uber there and the cost was about €23 and it was three of us. Buy your ticket in advance if possible. Take a tuk tuk back down to the little town after exploring the castle. It's the best option if you didn't drive and its about €5 per person.
Pastel De Nata - I was told I had to try this when I got there and this thing is amazing. Nothing says Portugal quite like a Portuguese custard tart. It’s an egg custard encased in layers of buttery pastry, which manages to be both crunchy and soft at the same damn time. You can find these at almost any bakery across the city.
The Belem district is a nice area to visit and see many of the historic landmarks of Lisbon. The Christ The King Monument is also worth visiting.
Over Lisbon is a very nice place. I had no expectations when going there and I'm glad I went. I would love to plan a return trip there where Im able to do more exploring.
