Lisbon has many free tours offered by several groups and I always wondered if they were worth joining. Since I didn’t know much about Lisbon when I arrived, I thought it was a great opportunity to find out.
Once I booked a ticket to Lisbon, I knew I wanted to visit one of those dreamy beaches in Portugal. My friend told me that the Algarve region would be a great area to see those beautiful beaches and San Rafael Atlantico was the perfect place in Albufeira.
Since I was visiting Lisbon, I knew I wanted to make my way down south to visit the amazing beaches of Portugal. The question was how I was going to get there. My three choices were renting a car, catching the bus or riding the train. I decided to take the train and really enjoyed my First Class experience.
This was my first time flying with TAP Air Portugal and I was a little nervous since I’ve never flew with them before and there were very mixed reviews online. I needed a roundtrip ticket from Barcelona to Lisbon and my only two options were Vueling or TAP Air Portgual. TAP Air Portugal seemed to be a bit better with their reviews so I decided to go with them.
When I was looking for a place to stay in Lisbon, Portugal, I knew I wanted to stay in the Chiado or Bairro Alto area since it was central to mostly everything and known to be the trendy neighborhoods. I searched on Booking.com and Chiado Arty Flats had one of the highest ratings with excellent reviews, so I knew I had to stay here.
