Lisbon was the first stop from my Portugal nine day trip. As soon as I got out from the metro in Chiado, I fell in love with the city! The colors, the light bathing the atmosphere, the tiles. I think it’s impossible not to love Lisbon. Anyways, in this post you’ll find everything about Lisbon: what to do and eat, where to stay and how to get around.
Lisbon Bucket List: The Best Things To Do In Lisbon
Start with a free walking tour
As soon as you get to Lisbon, take a free walking tour to get a grasp of what the city has to offer, the main sights and some insider tips from the tour guides that live there. It will help organise how you’ll spend the rest of your time in the city, and you can ask all the questions you want.
Visiting Vienna soon, or thinking about it? If the latter, don’t think about it anymore and get tempted with the things you can do in Vienna featured in the list below. I really liked Vienna, I’ve visited twice. It has beautiful architecture and a royal feel, but is relaxed at the same time. My advice is to visit Vienna on a weekend if you live in Europe and for one or two days if you are doing a trip around Europe or Austria. Anyways, these are my bucket list items for Vienna!
Simple, Madeira is known as the “island of eternal spring”! The reason it’s known that way is that Madeira’s subtropical climate makes it a great destination to visit all year round. August and September are the hottest months when temperatures reach around 26 degrees centigrade but it’s a popular spot to seek out winter sunshine as temperatures hover around 19 degrees in January and February. So if you want to avoid the crowds, visit on those months! But it’s not only the weather, Madeira has been deemed the Hawaii of Europe. There’s a lot to do, the main thing being hiking which is the best way to enjoy the breathtaking scenery.
HOW TO GET TO AND AROUND MADEIRA
Madeira is part of Portugal but this island is closer to Africa than it is to Europe. It is a four-hour flight away from London and Paris. I took a direct flight to Madeira from London which I found using Skyscanner and there are direct flights from Europe’s main cities.
Renting a car is a good way to get around Madeira but not absolutely necessary. Tours are cheap, so if you stay in Funchal you can just take day tours and explore Funchal on foot. Some hikes are accesible by bus as well.
It’s sometimes hard to find classy and elegant items in Femme Luxe, but you know, those who seek shall find. The look for this brand is pretty slinky and I have a much more elegant look but being flexible and thinking creatively allows me to find items I love even if I don’t have the shape or look of the model that they use which I believe is their regular customer. My favourite item of this haul were the black trousers, it’s hard for these not to be elegant. I wasn’t a huge fan of the animal print trousers, they don’t look too classy, but I’m very extreme and don’t use animal print at all so that might be why. You might like them, I just have quite strict rules on what I wear.
