BOM DIA LISBOA!

Visting Lisbon from the Algarve could not be easier.   Train tickets are available online at CP and 3 hours later...you are in Portugal's hilly, historic, coastal capital.  For a European city, accommodation for Lisbon is great value for money.  We booked an apartment right in the heart of Bairro Alto, which was perfect for a short city break.

Down past Elevador da Bica, past Pink Street and along to the iconic square of Praça do Comércio, we caught the tram to Belém. A "must-do" when visiting, the tram is relaxing, offers great views and saves your legs!  Belém tower (Torre de Belém) a UNESCO World Heritage Site was somewhere I particularly wanted to visit, as I didn't get chance on my last trip.   Recommended by my friends, you have to visit Pastéis de Belém!!  Founded in 1837, they bake the traditional pastel de nata from a secret recipe.   I can tell you...they are amazing!!   Hot, with cinnamon, they taste like no other pastel de nata!!
