Lisbon!!! its a must see place.

I wanted to write a post about somewhere I went last year, and it is probably one of the nicest places I have been to in a long time for relatively little money. Last year I went to Lisbon. I went in may and absolutely loved it so as soon as I got back home, I went and booked up to go again 3 weeks later. I didn't know I was going to like Lisbon. I'm not used to going to large, major cities, and certainly have never really stopped in one before so this was going to be a new experience for me. Well I absolutely loved it. It felt like a small, very local place. A place where people know each other. A place full of charm and pleasure. Its so lovely to get lost in all the little streets, then you turn the corner and find yourself in a big open square. The buildings look so beautiful. It wasn't even a place I felt threatened in when going out at night. The other thing I love about Lisbon is the metro system. For 6euros a day you can get a daily pass for all trams, busses and metros. I took full advantage of these to go of exploring. Even when you had to pay for the trains, the fees were a joke, it was so cheap. It is definitely somewhere I am going to try and get back to this year if I can afford it. If you haven't been and are thinking about it, then I would say do it. For once, cheap does not mean compromising on quality at all.

Lisbon is indeed a great city! But I am Portuguese, so my opinion isn't impartial ahaha

I have never been to Portugal, but it is one of the countries that I would love to visit in the future, and while I am there I want to visit Lisbon. I live in Denmark and I would either drive all the way to Portugal or catch a train, I am not sure about that yet.

I can highly recommend going to Portugal. I love Lisbon its well worth visiting. I would not want to drive round Lisbon, nor is it necessary. You can get everywhere on bus and metro.

You might want to mention that Lisbon is in Portugal. I had to think for a second to remember!

I have not been to Lisbon, but have visited the Algarve in Southern Portugal. I actually found Portugal fairly expensive compared to many resorts in Europe.
As for large cities, I have visited Moscow, Prague, Amsterdam, Krakow and a few others, which can be as enjoyable as seaside resorts. I am currently considering Riga in Latvia for a short break.
