What to do in Lisbon

Lisbon is a city full of history, culture and undeniable charm. It’s bursting with attractions and activities to do, from strolling through the colourful narrow streets of Alfama to enjoying the sweetness of the famous pasteis de nata. You’ll experience a relaxed but never boring journey. Discover the iconic Torre de Belém and the beautiful Jerónimos Monastery. And then watch fado shows, admire the azulejos and lose yourself in the flavours of the Portuguese capital. And if you don’t know where to start, read on to discover some of our favourite experiences.

Top six things to do in Lisbon

1. Go back in time at São Jorge Castle

Perched on one of the hills of Lisbon, the Castle of São Jorge reminds us of Portugal’s glorious past. Though it was heavily damaged during an 18th-century earthquake, a visit to the reconstructed castle is the perfect experience to learn about the history of the city and enjoy a splendid panorama. Join a guided tour to discover all its secrets and take a dive into the Middle Ages.

2. Lose yourself in Alfama

Located right in the heart of the city, Alfama has a timeless appeal. This historic district survived the destructive earthquake and tsunami of 1755 and, also for this reason, retains the most authentic essence of the city. Stroll among the colourful buildings, narrow streets and clubs, from which the melancholic notes of fado emerge. Start your walk from the Castle of São Jorge and then amble down the hill, until you arrive at Sé de Lisboa cathedral.

3. Admire the Praça do Comércio

Praça do Comércio, the large square overlooking the River Tagus, is the gateway to the heart of Lisbon. Adorned with dozens of arches, this elegant square is steeped in history. In the past, in fact, it housed the royal residence of the Paço da Ribeira, completely destroyed by the 1755 tsunami. The square was then rebuilt with a more modern layout and renamed ‘Commerce Square’ to indicate its new function, as the main hub for the country’s economic activity. Drop into one of the historic cafés and savour the air of nostalgia.

4. Enjoy a cruise on the River Tagus

A Tagus river cruise gives you a completely different perspective on the city and is an experience that blends the discovery of new corners of Lisbon with a relaxed atmosphere. Navigate under the landmark April 25th bridge, symbol of the city’s union, and admire the skyline of modern and historic buildings. The cruise becomes even more romantic as the sun goes down, perfect when accompanied by a glass of local wine or a cocktail.

5. Visit the attractions of Belem

Belem is another must-see neighbourhood. In fact, it’s where some of the most famous attractions in Lisbon are to be found, such as the iconic Belem Tower and the Jeronimos Monastery. The first is an intricate sentinel that stands out over the sea, which you can admire both from the outside and inside. Going up, you’ll enjoy a very special view of the surrounding area. The monastery, on the other hand, is an absolute masterpiece of Manueline architecture. A little off the beaten track is also the Belem Cultural Centre, a really cool attraction that celebrates innovation in art.

6. Take a day trip to Sintra and Cascais

Sintra and Cascais are two places that are easily accessible from Lisbon, both by train and by car. And they are gorgeous. In Sintra, you’ll feel like you are in a fairytale, thanks to its forest landscapes, low-lying mists and romantic palaces, such as the hilltop Pena Palace. Then immerse yourself in the maritime charm of Cascais, with its golden beaches and picturesque streets. Although it is perfect as a day trip from Lisbon, it is worth staying in Sintra or Cascais to be able to explore them more intimately over 2 or 3 days.

Get ready to visit Lisbon

When is the best time to visit Lisbon?

Spring and autumn are the best times to visit Lisbon. From April to June the climate is particularly pleasant, cool but sunny. In autumn, on the other hand, you can fully enjoy the low season and avoid the crowds of visitors. But winter is also a good time, especially the months of February and March, which, although they may be a little more rainy, bring with them very pleasant sunny days.

How many days do you need to visit Lisbon?

Lisbon is a relatively small city, and all its main attractions are concentrated in the historic centre. Except for the Belém district, you’ll easily be able to reach the main points of interest on foot. That's why two or three days can be enough to visit the highlights of the city. However, we advise you to stay at least four days – so you have time for a day trip to fairytale Sintra.

What are the best areas to stay in in Lisbon?

The central districts of Lisbon are very different from each other, but they all offer excellent options for accommodation. If you want to be in the center of the nightlife, then opt for accommodation in Bairro Alto. If, on the other hand, you prefer a small apartment in a picturesque atmosphere, Alfama is the right choice. It's also perfect if you want to be near some good traditional restaurants. Finally, if you prefer an elegant and perfectly connected area, have a look at Chiado and the Baixa, modern and ideal for shopping.
