Lisbon: Our Favourite Things To Do...

This summer, after leaving the UK to embark on an adventure of a lifetime, our first stop was Lisbon. In the 5 weeks we spent here (I say here as we came back and right now I'm sat in our apartment in Alfama) we fell in love with this beautiful city and I would like to share our favourite things to do:


🚃 Ride Tram 28 through the narrow streets of Lisbon⁣⁣⁣⁣


🏖 Take the scenic coastal train for a day trip to Cascais (Head to Praia de Santa Marta (lighthouse) and Parc Marechal Carmona)



🏰 Visit Sintra for Pena Palace, Castle of the Moors, The Quinta da Regaleira, Palacio de Monserrate and the beautiful grounds⁣⁣⁣⁣ of all of the above!


⛴ Hop on a boat to Cacilhas and walk along the river to Ponto Final (amazing street art en route)⁣⁣⁣⁣



🌸 Head to Miradouro Santa Luzia (the most beautiful view point in Lisbon) and enjoy French fries, beer and Ginja⁣⁣⁣⁣ at Miradoura Santa Luzia Restaurante



🍽 Time Out Market for a food & drink bonanza (not so great for vegans!) ⁣⁣⁣⁣



🌅 Miradouro da Senhora Do Monte for undeniably the best views of Lisbon⁣⁣⁣⁣



🌼 Grab @scoopndough donuts for a picnic in Jardim da Graça (beautiful views of the castle)⁣⁣⁣⁣
