I'm planning a long weekend trip to Portugal this July with a friend and I'd love some recommended towns/sights/places. Thanks!
Lisbon is a fantastic city and very underrated when you compare its popularity versus other European cities. Staying in Lisbon is great, I was there in July and stayed in Cascais which is a beach town with a great historic section, lots of bars and restaurants, that is easily accessible to Lisbon (about an hour by train). A fantastic place in and of itself, but also convenient to Lisbon and some other places. I'd also highly recommend a day trip to Sintra which is a fantastic place (Unesco world heritage site). If you make it to Sintra, definitely visit the Pena National Palace
