This morning we took our first Context Travel Tour…impressive! The size of the group (4 adults), vast historical knowledge of our guide, Ian, pacing of the 3 hour tour/walk, and content of Ian’s talk and anecdotes were a perfect introduction to Lisbon!

We travelled around on the tram. The hills were a little much but they gave us a good apetite and thirst. Elevator is not to be missed. Love the food in Portugal. Weather was lovely too.

earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its
name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in
