Lisbon

Post by benread »

A ‘soon to expire’ TAP travel voucher is taking the whole family to Lisbon for a few days in early April. (Porto was vetoed!)

Any advice on family friendly (boys aged 13 & 11) things to do or places to eat.

Bonus point if it is somewhere that will also satiate my thirst for port!

I have only been to Lisbon for one afternoon but can highly recommend a trip to Pasteis de Belém for the best custard tart experience on the planet :D

Beware, though, the queues can sometimes be daunting!
But I concur, absolutely worth a visit. I used to live quite near.
