If You Only Have Three Days in Lisbon
Three days in Lisbon is enough time to get a feel for the Portuguese capital. There are some experiences that you shouldn't miss: Taste a custard tart (the famous pastel de Belém), listen to fado (Portuguese folk music), and stroll through Lisbon’s alleys and narrow streets. But with three days there is also time to visit some museums or the castle. Make sure to end your visit with a glass of Portuguese wine and a view out over Lisbon.

Pastel de nata is a Portuguese egg tart pastry, common in Portugal. Those found at Pastéis de Belém have become legendary for their super secret recipe. Any day of the week, a line trails out the door waiting to savor one of tens of thousands made daily. Eat them warm with a cafe.
