Such a beautiful place to visit, the workmanship is amazing. It was hot when we were there but it was well worth the wait.

This really is a must-do on your visit to Lisbon, a very impressive and imposing structure with a fascinating history. But you probably won't spend very long here.

Instead of standing in line at Jeronimo Monastery for 2-3 hours just to buy a ticket, go to Ajuda Palace instead. There is no wait and the palace is beautiful. It was the last Portuguese monarch’s home. Very well appointed and no crowds!

This place deserves the top reviews and is well worth seeking out. Much quieter and cheaper than other historic sights in Lisbon, it cost 10 euros for a family of 4. Very much furnished in an exuberant and glitzy style, it is a bit like...More

We strolled through the palace. Interesting to get a glimpse of past royal lifestyles. On our way back to our hotel we came across a street vendor that sold the absolute best churro we have ever had. Travel down the city streets toward the water...More
