                        Orașul Lisabona nu merita un sejur de mai mult de 3 zile. Nu te aștepta să găsești în Lisabona ce găsești la celelalte capitale ale Europei (ca obiective turistice) Roma, Paris, Londra, pentru că vei avea o mare dezamăgire. Este un oraș pitoresc în care recomand sa te plimbi și să-l descoperi la pas.
