My Trip to Portugal: Part 3
After 'roughing' it for a bit in the Azores, we flew back to Lisbon to spend a few more days there. If you want to spend time in Lisbon's neighboring cities, you have to stay in Lisbon for at least a week. We still ate and drank a lot in the heart of Lisbon, but also ventured outside a bit and went to the beach town of Cascais.
We treated ourselves and stayed at the Memmo Principe Real. This was the best hotel I've ever stayed at. The room was incredible, the service was impeccable, and the views you wake up to were unreal. See below:
We hailed an Uber and went to the beach town of Cascais for the day. It reminded me so much of home!
We were 50/50 on visiting the castles. Last minute we decided to go. Hey, if Madonna bought a house in Sintra, it must be cool. The castles and palaces were insane. Its crazy to think that people lived in these massive spaces. (How did they keep them clean?)
Lisbon, you were amazing. I hope it's not too long until I'm back.
