Lisbon, Portugal had been on our bucket list for years and we FINALLY got the chance to check it off a few weeks ago! This captivating city with it’s arched yellow buildings and perfect blend of modernization, history and tradition make it the ideal European destination. I can’t believe it took us so long to visit! As we discovered during our holiday, there were a ton of things to do in Lisbon with teens. Taking selfies from panoramic view points, visiting a castle and palaces, eating delectable Portuguese tarts, and riding the famous wooden tram were just a few of the adventures that awaited us.
Originally we wanted do a 1-2 week roadtrip through the country, but couldn’t work it into our schedule. Instead, we spent 5 nights in Lisbon and would return in a heartbeat. The city was beautiful with so much to see in the surrounding areas that our short visit didn’t allow nearly enough time. Good thing there are direct flights from the USA. We’re already talking about a return trip!
