Visiting Lisbon in early December couldn’t have been more magical. With temperatures hovering around the low 60s, it was the perfect time to explore and discover all this coastal city had to offer!
There is a lot of old-world charm in Lisbon. It’s the kind of place that has an antique bookstore in the main plaza. Imagine that in New York! It’s rustic yet colorful and oh-so-charming. Take a tour of some of my favorite moments from a relaxing weekend in Lisbon, Portugal.
