After a week in Oporto, we headed down the line by train [which by the way is a pleasant journey and scenic] to the more trendy, sophisticated and more populated city of Lisbon.
Airbnb was again used to find another superb apartment. It was modern, clean and very cosy meaning it was small. To be fair, who spends too much time in their accommodation when you have a new city to explore, not us!
For a change, I shall use few words and will let my photographs tell the story our week’s visit in Summer 2016.
The Old Part of Lisbon

The Rossio Train Station
As fascinating as this historic tower is, we felt it was not worth standing in line for over an hour in 30+ degs we had other fish to fry, literally as it was lunchtime. Now, where was that café we wanted to have lunch?
Action packed when driving in Lisbon.
The iconic trams.
A favourite ‘thing’ to photograph, another tram in front of this one. We enjoyed walking more than being crammed into the trams.

If you can,
do visit Portugal
it is well worth exploring more than once.
