SPOTTED IN PORTUGAL - A CITY GUIDE

 photo 0b1e9db6-2396-4f2d-8d90-6f5a5f70cee3_zps212593ae.jpg

Petite introduction française pour vous expliquer ce city guide portuguais. 
Comme pour New-York et Berlin, vous trouverez ici toutes mes bonnes adresses. De Lisbonne et Tavira. Celles testées après avoir farfouillé le net de droite à gauche, celles repérées et minutieusement listées pour ne pas les oublier. Mes découvertes à travers plusieurs guides de voyage insolites et mes heures sur la toile mais aussi sur place au détour d'une petite ruelle.
Un carnet de voyage, en somme, avec mes coups de coeur, mes visites, mes adresses shopping et autres plaisirs culinaires.

Trucs et astuces :

Je vous conseille d'abuser des pasteleria pour le petit-déjeuner, de vous gaver de pasteis sans oublier d'y soupoudrer de la cannelle et du sucre poudre. Cela ne sert à rien de prendre la formule petit dej de votre hôtel.

Les petites choses déposées sur votre table, comme le pain, les olives, le beurre, les anchois, les petits amuses-bouche et autres mets vous seront facturés seulement si vous y avez touchés. N'hésitez pas à les mettre sur le côté de la table pour que le serveur comprenne que vous n'en voulez pas. Les olives et le pain sont souvent excellent, ne vous en privez pas trop non plus :).

Abusez également des taxis, ils ne coûtent pas grand chose même pour de plus longues distances (aéroport-hôtel, hôtel-oceanario).

Grimpez cette magnifique ville qu'est Lisbonne et vous en serez toujours récompensés face aux magnifiques panoramas qu'offrent les différents points de vue de la ville. Une bonne dizaine de Miradouros à visiter.

Laissez-vous bercer par le rythme de Lisbonne et prenez le temps d'apprécier tout ce que cette ville à vous offrir en contemplant ses merveilles, ses ruelles, ses coins cachés, ses petits adresses encore méconnues de la toile. Ne vous fiez pas entièrement à vos guides. Sortez des sentiers battus et gardez les yeux grands ouverts.

J'avais repéré un super studio via Airbnb mais il était complet pour nos dates. Je n'ai pas du tout été déçue de mon choix d'hôtels par la suite. Réservé à l'avance via leur site pour celui de Lisbonne et le jour même via un simple coup de fil pour celui de Tavira (vacances début juin).

  1. Je pars en Septembre à Lisbonne pour 5 jours ! Tes photos me donnent encore plus envie d'y être. J’espère qu'en un séjour si court, nous aurons le temps de tout voir, en y intégrant Sintra et Cascais !
    Je note bien toutes les adresses, ça a l'air délicieux tout ce qui y est proposé :)
    Merci pour ce city guide très intéressant. La plupart des adresses vont dans mon petit livre de voyage.
    Alix
