With summer almost and I absolutely mean almost in the end, the good weather will start to disappear in almost every country of Europe. Except of course, in Lisbon, the sunniest capital of Europe!!
Of course the weather will be slightly colder and the sky will continue being blue and the sun will continue shinning and warm enough to go out in the city and explore.
Today I’m making a Bucket List for this city that owns my heart, my beautiful Lisbon!
Visit Alfama and the S. Jorge castle where you will have a breath taking view. Check my photos of this part of Lisbon here.
Ride in the famous yellow trams through the historical part of the city. My best and most helpful advice is to beware your bags be used there is always someone who only has bad intentions.
Enjoy the sunset from the the Augusta Street Arch, find more about this here. To get you daydreaming about this view imagine this: all the city in one side, the castle in the other, the river right in front of you and then the iconic 25 de Abril Bridge.
Day trip to Sintra, a fairytale little village just 30 minutes outside Lisbon. See I favourite photos of this perfect little town here.
Also be sure to spend a day in Serra da Arrabida, a place where the mountains and the beach meet. One of my favorite places in Portugal and it’s so worth the trip.
And finally but still very important: don’t forget to try the amazing Pasteis de Nata.
For me the best ones are those from the small and traditional cafes.
And now, enjoy Lisbon!!
