Lisbon was a short getaway in between change of jobs. We wanted somewhere close and not too cold. In the cold of winter in February, Lisbon was a good choice.
Top things to do in Lisbon:
1. Join a running tour
Our favourite part of the trip was a running tour with Lisbon City Runners where we ran 12K around the city with the multiple Ironman participant. It was our first time joining a running tour and we thoroughly enjoyed it. A great and quick way to see the fabulous sites of this city, especially if you have limited time. The only thing is Lisbon is very hilly so be prepared!
2. Rent an electric scooter to ride on the road circling the city centre
You will see scooters scattered all around the city centre. You could go up to over 20km/hour so it felt surprisingly fast especially when you’re riding along bumpy roads. Some of us were more risky than others!
3. Eat a pastel de nata
No visit to Lisbon is complete without a pastel de nata. We tried both Pastéis de Belém and Manteigaria. We enjoyed the ones from Manteigaria so much that we bought half a dozen back to London!
4. Visit Sintra
