Okay, internet. I’m just over a month away from Euro18* and I need your help. Yes, you! Tell me your travel secrets. I have two and a half days to spend in Lisbon, eating all the things and getting all the culture. Where do I start?
Oh man, I can hear you already.
Q: Olivia! You can’t see a city like Lisbon in 2.5 days!
A: Have you met me? Brussels: 24 hours. Vienna: 36 hours. Iceland (a whole country!): 58 hours.
So, we’ve determined that I can in fact get a taste of a city in two and a half days. What I’m counting on you for are recommendations to make sure that I see the real Lisbon, and not the touristy version that’s been adapted for visitors.
Please, leave a comment on any or all of the below questions:
- Where would you go for good local food? If there isn’t an English menu, consider me intrigued.
- What’s your favourite activity in the city?
- What’s a “can’t miss” sight that I need to check out?
My loyal readers (shout out to my three family members), I am back with a vengeance this spring, and can’t wait to let you know all about my travels.
*Refers to my incredible two-week European adventure coming up, not some music festival. But, I get it. We’re heading into Coachella weekend so I can’t fault you for going there.
