Lisbon Neighborhood

When planning our itinerary for our Viking River Cruise in Portugal’s Douro River we knew we wanted to take advantage of the opportunity of being in Lisbon, even if it was for just a few days. (We had a cat and an RV being watched by my parents so we couldn’t stay forever…even if we…
