Lisbon, Portugal had long been on my bucket list, and has easily become one of my favorite European travel destinations. Sun-drenched orange rooftops, fresh seafood paired with local wines, and graffiti-lined alleyways winding around the hills: There is so much to love about Portugal’s charming capital city.
In March, I finally got the chance to visit Lisbon with my boyfriend and his sister. We had already planned to visit Paris for a family trip, and wanted to add a second destination in Europe to the trip. Portugal became a top contender with its sunny climate and great value for money compared to other European countries.
After hearing so many good things about Portugal‘s capital, I had high expectations for this up-and-coming travel destination. Our four-day visit totally exceeded my expectations and left me wishing we had more time to spend in Lisbon. I adored this quirky yet charming city, and hope that this Lisbon travel guide and long weekend itinerary will make you fall in love with Lisbon too!
