I had Lisbon in the spotlight For a long time and finally, thanks to a planned trip to Madeira we decided to make a three-day stopover in the Portuguese capital.

It was one of those early risers and it was not yet eight in the morning when we were already waiting for our bags at the Lisbon airport.

With the hangover of Christmas food and the few hours asleep, we went to the post office at the airport to buy the famous Seven Hills card that allows the use of public transport throughout the city of Lisbon for 5 euros a day. Unfortunately, the office was closed and we opted for plan B:

Get on the classic Airbus That left us in the center of the city. I had previously read online that if you showed your TAP company ticket, the airport bus was free for you but it was not like that and we paid the approximate 2 euros that the ticket currently costs.

The airport is very close to the center of Lisbon and the Aerobus makes different stops in the city and in just 20 minutes we reach our destination.

Views of St. George's Castle from Rossio

Days before, through Booking, We found a nice apartment for 60 euros a night in the Castle area. So we got off the Aerobus in Rossio Square, we bought a transport card in the subway vending machines - which I miraculously understood at the first - and we got on the first tram in Lisbon to San Jorge Castle.

Walking around Lisbon at eight in the morning on a holiday is a joy. There were hardly any people on the street and the city woke up sleepy, with ocher colors and some street lamps still lit. The city seemed to perform a process of empathy with our sleepwalking state of the few hours asleep. However, Lisbon and its cobblestones are bad companions for the suitcases with wheels bought in a Chinese, so we went on the fast track and headed towards our destination to settle and visit the lighter city a little later.
