We arrived to Lisbon early this morning, and once we became settled in our apartment we walked through downtown Lisbon toward the water. On our way we discovered Galerias Romanas da Baixa, an underground tunnel that was constructed during the time of the Roman occupation, during the reign of Emperor Augustus. The gallery is only open on September 21 & 22 every year. Unfortunately, the line up was much too long so we were unable to see the site.
After spending hours sitting by the sea, we traveled downtown and took the tram up the hill to Bairro Alto, where we ate and spent the rest of the evening exploring.
