I am planning to visit lisbon and paris for 5 days each during april, its my first time in europe so i am wondering what will be the cost of 5 days for the itinerary bellow?
day 1 :arriving lisbon at 18:10 from casablanca
check in to our hotel (Apartments Queen Baixa Lisboa) in chaido, walk and discover the area then diner out and off to sleep.
day 2 Chiado, Baixa, Alfama, Praca de Commercio and end the afternoon at Castelo de Sao Jorge for a great view across the city.
day3 train to Belem and on to Cascais (from where to catch the train and how much it cost )
day 4 - visit Sintra
Day 5 take early flight to paris.
Its my first time so i dont know how to reach these places, i visited so many countries, is there a card i should get at the airport for transportstion! Is the accomodarion i choose good, if not where to base my stay?
On the first night, go out, explore the city center near you room and eat in the center. The city center is small and easely known by foot. If you have the energy, i wood recomend you take the Elevador de Santa Justa and have a drink on the terraces nesr the Convento Do Carmo and enjoy the view at the end of the day in one of the best pots in Lisbon. Second day is great, third day go to Belém but, i dont know if going to Cascais is a good option. You will not be able to enjoy both places in the same day and, Belém has so much to offer. Only if you start your day really early, go to Belén, and late in the day go to Cascais and have dinner there, returning at night. It all depensa, if you want just to see the ouside of the monuments, you will be fast in Belém but, theres so much to see... And, dont forget to eat the Pastel de Belém there.
On the 4 day, go to Sintra
Your itinerary is great, i just sugest you study more about Belém to choose what you want to see and, if its possible to go to Cascais. Any question, i will be hapy to help ;) Have a great trip

Day 1. Your apartment is within central historical Lisbon, so imo that's a big advantage. The city is very walkable indeed and you will see much, much more if you mostly explore it on foot.
Day 2. As above. Use this day to explore the historical centre mostly on foot, but make sure you also ride all four of Lisbon's elevadores (four short funicular railways plus the Elevador de Santa Justa lift) and take the excellent tram 28 route which whizzes through the narrow streets of Lisbon's oldest area.
Taking tram 28 from terminus to terminus (and back again) is an excellent way of seeing the city, a chance to rest your feet during the heat of the day and makes a very relaxing an enjoyable evening trip. :-)
Get a day ticket (6.15 euro, though you'll pay a few eurocents more for the 7 Colinas card on which the ticket is put) from any of the ticket kiosks in central Lisbon. There is no point in buying a ticket at the airport as it does not cover any airport route.Information in English on the official Lisbon transport site here:
(Note that 'tourist routes' means organised tours, not just trips that tourist might take!).

Day 3: It's best to catch tram 15 to Belém from its terminus in Praça da Figueira. Like tram 28, this tram gets very crowded indeed (tourists) so queues at other stops are often very long. Note that both tram routes are favourite targets for pickpockets (because of the tourists) so keep cash, cards and phone safely underneath your clothing and never in bags or pockets with external openings!
Tram 15 is a modern electronic tram with stops displayed on screen. Get off at Monasteiros Jeronimos to visit the Jerónimos Monastery and explore Belem. Make sure you visit the Pastéis de Belém cafe nearby to try some of their delicious pasteis (pastries).
Take tram 15 back to Lisbon and get off at Cais do Sodre station to take the commuter train to Cascais.
Train times and fares from Cais do Sodre to Cascais in English on the official site:
Sintra's railway station is about 10 minutes' walk from the historical centre (it's signed). If you want to visit e.g. the Castelo dos Mouros, which is quite a long way outside Sintra centre, there is also a hop-on bus which will take you to all the main Sintra sites (though it's not cheap):
