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.
