You won't need much convincing that you really want to visit this place after you've seen some of these pictures! Lisbon is ideal for a short weekend getaway. I spent 3 days there and one of my favorite places was Belem where I went to see the famous Tower of Belem! From here you can also enjoy great views of the 25 de Abril Bridge which looks a lot like the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco by the way. For those Instagram-worthy shots of the red roofs you'll need to head up to the castle! The whole area surrounding the castle is very traditional and super pretty. And make sure you take one of the iconic yellow trams - it's really an awesome experience! The most famous one is Tram 28 and if you're lucky enough you get to stand right behind the conductor and watch how they pull, turn and push buttons and wheels with the whole force of their bodies - this is pre-war technology!
So without further ado, here's Lisbon for you! :)
