4. Lisbon, Portugal "I did scuba diving in Sesimbra which was absolutely brilliant."

Lastminute.com reviewer Amir shares, "The weather in Lisbon was good most of the time. There was plenty to see and many restaurants and cafes. I would recommend visiting local places to eat, it's cheaper and better quality, plus the experience feels more authentic. I recommend that you visit the beach in Caparica, Cascais and the coastline thereafter. It's really cool to surf if that's your thing. I would recommend visiting Sintra it's a beautiful town with many historical monuments I. E. Moorish castle and castle Pena. The view from up top is spectacular. I did scuba diving in Sesimbra which was absolutely brilliant. I was taken to a destination that was just mind glowingly beautiful, we even got to see dolphins swimming and the team of instructors were brilliant and patient. De-stressing tips: Scuba diving, beach, Sightseeing. Romantic experience: Sightseeing in Sintra. I liked: Sintra, scuba diving, and the beaches."
