Lisbon Travel Diary: What to Do, See + Eat

September 26, 2018

I was in Lisbon for a short couple of days, but I wanted to share with you guys some really cute places we found, so if you ever find yourself in Portugal you can visit these places too :~)


We stayed at the Sheraton Lisboa Hotel, which was about a 20-30 minute walk from the center town. I would say that is a decent amount of distance given the price of the hotel, and the fact that it was far enough to not be too touristy. They had a heated pool, and a beautiful spa area where you can use the hot tub, steam room, and sauna! It's a great perk to have after a long day of walking.


The first place we went to was TimeOut Market which was an insane experience! The idea is that you stand in a line & take your food to a table. WELL. That's easier said than done because there's a million people! Luckily I was able to grab two seats after I ordered myself a pizza!

My mom found this great little breakfast place called Nicolau, and you guys HAVE to try it if you're ever in Lisbon. It's very close to the center town and SOOO good. They have smoothies, açai bowls, pancakes, juices, and more!! It was so light and perfect for a summer morning before a day out on the town! The vibes in this restaurant were so chill and reminded me of Cali vibes. I got the açaí smoothie with a pancake and my mom got an açaí bowl with a juice.... all very yummy. 

The last place I wanted to share is this gelato shop in the Alfama district called Giallo. They have so much more, too, if you're not a huge ice cream fan...but I had the watermelon & raspberry sorbet...ugh I could go for another one of those right now! Fresh...homemade...:~)


We saw so much of Lisbon in such a short amount of time (2.5 days!) I fell so much in love with the little streets, and the beautiful culture throughout Lisbon.

We also found a PINK STREET! How cute! My mom found this online, that there as a pink street, and I knew I had to go take some pictures on it, because I'm obsessed with pink ;~)

We also saw the infamous Belem Tower, except there wasn't any water surround it on the front side which was strange, because that's kind of the reason you go there! But nevertheless, it was gorgeous to see. I would've love to seen it at sunset or sunrise with a gorgeous colorful sky.

Alrighties! That about wraps up my Europe posts! I hope you guys enjoyed them and I hope you create more travel posts for you all soon!
