LISBON IN 3 DAYS – WHAT TO DO

visit lisbon

I’ve never been to Portugal before, but when I saw a lot of pictures in my Instagram feed, taken in Lisbon and Sintra, it was mandatory for me to visit the country asap.
A city not too far from Paris, in Europe, with sunshine, a little bit warmth and of course the sea.

3 nights/3 days in Lisbon, exploring the city and around then one day in Sintra, to visit the Pena Palace and the west coast – Azenhas do mar.
If you’re in Sintra don’t miss to pass to Quinta da Regaleira too.

This article shows you the places where we went during the 4 days in Portugal 😉

Conclusion, I’m absolutely not disappointed about my destination, the weather was perfect for February, we were so lucky! And it was absolutely beautiful to discover the narrow streets of Lisbon, it was our main activity 🙂

4 perfect days that allowed me to escape the metro-boulot-dodo (= a french expression to say the “Parisian routine”) and to relax a little bit. I already can’t wait to go back again – next will be the south!
