For some time I wanted to go to Lisbon and I wanted to enjoy a spring getaway. Last weekend I was in this fantastic city. To view each of its points of interest I decided to hire a route guided walk, four-hour and well do everything perfectly, with explanation included. Should you prefer to do it for free, also you should not miss these seven essential visits:

Just 20 minutes from the city you can visit Cascais, a small town, ideal, with beautiful views of the beach. A ride well worth for its small historic town and Marina. Gluing is Estoril, in fact you can walk if you like. Located on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, is considered a smart population and its protagonist is the Casino.

Y Sintra a small, traditional, village located a little more than half an hour train from Lisbon.
