Lisbon, like Budapest is another beautiful Fall European destination that isn’t as financially exorbitant as you might have thought. Full of generous amounts of culture, history, music, and amazing food, you’ll have plenty to do here. Be sure to check out the tour of Sintra, where you can see some of Europe’s most stately castles like Feather Palace and the Castle of the Moors. We recommend going in the evening, just before sunset.
