I will be arriving to Lisbon from Seville on 12th May with my family - wife and 12-year old daughter.
I have not yet finalized how will I travel but I hope to be in Lisbon hotel by 3 PM
My flight from Lisbon is on 16th afternoon.
So I will have 12th Evening and 3 full days - 13th,14th ,15th.
I am planning to book at Lisbon art stay apartments, which is pretty much at the city center.
Let me know if you have any reviews about this place or have some other suggestion in similar budget (<200 EUR per night)
In Lisbon, some of things I would like to do -
- take a walking tour of the historic places
- go to Belem
- see the aquarium
- listen to Fado
- visit Sintra
- visit Timeout market
- go to some of the viewpoints
Question I have -
ANy recommendations of walking tour?
I mostly see 2 walking tours - one for Baixa,Chiado and another for Alfama
I am worried that it might take too much time and not leave enough time to roam for ourselves.
So, may be we can do one walking tour - which area will be better to do a tour or roam ourselves?
In Belem, is it worth going up the towers or inside the monastery?
I am thinking to just go inside the Monument of discoveries and skip going inside the monastery and Belem tower.
What else can I see in Belem - Coach museum/Navy musem?
How long is the queue in Pastéis de Belém ? Is it worth or may be try from other restaurants?
About tram 28, I heard it's really difficult to get a seat. SO, should I skip it?
Is there a particular place or time where I can get in easily?
Any good clubs/restaurants for Fado? I hope it is fine to go with a 12 year old
About Sintra, should we go for a guided tour or ourselves?
Should I take a cab or train?
I don't know if Uber or mytaxi works in Lisbon or should we take local cabs, please suggest
Timeout market - worth visiting? Is it a good place for lunch?
Which viewpoints do you recommend?
