Surprise Trip to Lisbon!!

Jump to last reply

I have a landmark birthday coming up next week, so my LW (ms_go) decided to surprise me with a quick trip to Lisbon. We depart on New Year’s Day!

Since I found out on Friday night, I have been devouring the DK/Eyewitness Lisbon book and we’ve acquired a decent map of the city. Aside from that, here’s what I know so far…

* We’re staying in an apartment right in the heart of town, in the Bairro Alto neighborhood. Only for 4 sleeps.

* I’ve already read up on the 72-hour Lisbon Card, and it’s an excellent value… we’ll get them right at the airport.

* Walking around, taking public transportation and exploring the major sites are the main activities… with eating and drinking a close second. The DK book has a couple of good walking tours laid out, and I have this walking tour bookmarked already: http://www.fodors.com/community/europe/my-one-or-two-day-walking-tour-of-lisbon.cfm

* Outings to Sintra and the Palacio Queluz are already being planned, as well.

OK… so what don’t I know that I need to?
