Lisbon is the capital and the biggest city of Portugal. Lying on the banks of the Tagus estuary and bordering the Atlantic Ocean, Lisbon boasts an extremely wealthy history, and a plethora of atmospheric neighbourhoods, grand monuments, picturesque lanes and broad boulevards. My current take a look at reminded me however once again why it is one particular of my favourite European capitals! Each landing in and taking-off from Lisbon was a treat as I had panoramic views of Lisbon from the plane window! I sat in row ‘A’ on each flights. The plane landed from a southwesterly path and on my way dwelling, took off in a southwesterly path.
The plane approached Lisbon from the north, flew previous the city and more than the Atlantic Ocean ahead of turning about to make the final method.
The airport is situated around six kilometers from the city center so the panoramic views of Lisbon unfolded swiftly suitable following take off!
If you are flying into or out of Lisbon, pick a window seat for some fairly spectacular views of the city!
