A Day in Lisbon

A tram in Lisbon, Portugal

Flying back to Sweden last week, Mike and I had a chance to spend a whole day in Lisbon as our TAP Portugal flight from Madeira arrived at 7am and our flight to Stockholm the following day was at 7am. We stayed at the only Hilton property in the city, the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Lisbon-Fontana Park where we had a lovely breakfast to start the day. At 8:30am, we took the metro to the city and explored some tourist attractions including the Lisbon Cathedral, Sao Jorge Castle and Rossio Square. Below are some photos from our day tour.
