Lisbon, Portugal

A beautiful city break, Lisbon's unique architecture and city layout makes for a rewarding spot to explore. Wind up and down the hilly alley ways, stopping every now and then for a pastel-de-nata (famed custard tart) or pop into a Portugese restaurant or market for an exceptional dining experience. With views of red roof tops and the ocean popping up around every corner, Lisbon reinspires even the most tired legs. 

To Do List: 
  • Walk the streets, popping into cafes and restaurants when you require sustainance.
  • Some restaurant favourites (Fish: Toscana Casa, Meat: Picanha, Portugese: Taberna Ideal) 
  • Visit the TimeOut food stall market (Mercado Da Ribveira) and enjoy Lisbon's finest chef's creations at a discounted price. 
  • Browse the LX Factory Market for food as well as clothing, books, and other neat creations by local artists and designers.
  • Take a day trip to nearby Sintra. While it can be sunny and warm in Lisbon, the higher altitude of Sintra can be a drastically different scene. Hope for sunshine and the trip should not disappoint. 
  • Indulge in a Portugese custard tart (or 10).
  • Take on the nightlife, it's a fun spot to socialize.
