Stuart – A weekend in Lisbon

Stuart Ingram

I just had the weekend in Lisbon. I would recommend 4 nights here as lots to see and do and it’s incredibly cheap! And the egg tarts are amazing and cheap (6 for 5 Euro). 

I flew Thai Airways to London and connected to TAP Air Portugal.

Very seamless as both operate in terminal 2 so couldn’t have been easier or faster.

Very impressed with Thai Airways Economy class on the A380 they use to London, Paris & Frankfurt.  Believe it is amongst the best economy class for sure.

You can combine Lisbon with Porto and the beaches too.

The people in Portugal are lovely and it’s a very cost effective way to spend a week in Europe or more.

Suggested touring:

  • Lisbon walking tour with Urban Adventures
  • Sintra day trip
  • Fatima

I stayed at Avenida Palace which is number 6 on Trip Advisor.

  • location couldn’t be better as you are right on the square
  • best egg tart shop 150m away
  • heaps of cheap good food in the immediate vicinity
  • can be in the old or new town in 5 minutes
  • taxis are super cheap here ($11 euro from the airport or airport city taxi was 20 euro one way)
