Portugal

 

Foreword

A long time ago I travelled thru this country ..... just before revolution.
I enjoyed it very much and I vowed to come back in different stages.

6 days in Lisbon - December 2017

You may watch my photos album on Google+.

Flights

I don't like low-cost flights, so I chose Portuguese airlaine TAP from Lyon to Lisbon.
1h delay before taking off during the 2 ways.
Last day spoiled : leaving hotel at 11h a.m. local (12h Fr) and arriving in Grenoble at 9h p.m.

Hotel

I found a good deal, by Verychic, in Lux Lisboa Park hotel 4* with the following services included :
Free breakfasts.
Free transfert airport to hotel and back.
Wine tasting in terrace (white, red and green) with cheeses and cooked pork meats.
One 25min massage relax & D-stress in spa / person and stay.
Free access to Infintiy Pool and fitness.
A welcome glass at The Infinity Terrace.

Very modern hotel, staff very helpful. Close to botanic garden.

Lux Lisboa Park hotel Lisbonne

Very good food. Various meals at breakfast buffet.
Spacious room with flat lcd wall tv. Amazing bathroom : multi-sprinklers showers but washbasin is in the middle of the room without mirror in front of it. How to hand-shave ? It's a disadvantage (fortunately I have a beard)

Visits

5 days aren't enough to visit Lisbon and surroundings.
→ On Saturday, first hiking from Marques de Pombal square, following da Libertade avenue, then ascensor da Gloria street, I got back through Dom Pedro V street where we could find out many handicraft shops.

→ On Sunday, I made a 115km tour in a vintage VW convertible beetle with driver :
Lisbon by beetle.
