Portugal’s capital city is a treasure trove of history and architecture, a surfer’s paradise and a foodie’s mecca. Despite its size and stature though, Lisbon has held onto its old-world charm and relaxed southern pace. While you could easily while away a weekend people watching at one of Lisbon’s traditional courtyard cafes, those who want to see Lisbon in full should head straight to the city’s galleries and museums. Discovering Lisbon’s stunning 16th-century monastery and the Belem Tower as well as exploring the Botanic Gardens are must-dos, too. In the evening, ascend to Bairro Alto for the best al fresco dining spots and the busiest bars. All done? You’ll still only have scratched the surface of what’s on offer in this epic city.

Things to do in Lisbon

  • Our tips for Lisbon

    Our tips for Lisbon
    • Do take the tram. More than just a means of getting from A to B, Lisbon’s network of old-style trams is an experience in itself. Hopping on this century-old public transport system is a Lisbon sightseeing must. Take Tram 28 to trundle past famous Lisbon attractions, Estrela Basilica and Sé Cathedral before alighting at St George’s Castle for a scenic stroll.
    • Don’t speak Spanish. Mistaking a Portuguese for a Spaniard is like calling a Canadian person an American. In other words, it’s a big no-no. A quick Lisbon tours cheat sheet? Greet with an “olá” or “bom dia”, say thank you with “obrigado” and good night with “boa noite”.
    • Do Siesta. As is the European way, dinner doesn’t start until at least 8pm and bars don’t buzz until 10:30pm at the earliest. If you want to party like the Portuguese then you’ll definitely need to catch some afternoon z’s.
    • Don’t touch the bread. Portuguese cuisine is exquisite and you can find some seriously good eats on the cheap at hole-in-the-wall restaurants dotted around the city. One thing to keep in mind on your Lisbon day tours is, oddly enough, the bread. Restaurants will provide plates of bread, olives and other tasty tidbits upon seating but be warned, pick at these faux-freebies and expect to pay the price – it will be accounted for on your bill.
