4.5 5003 Reviews | Add your review

Lisbon  is a city to get lost in, wandering steep, narrow streets lined with tiled buildings, and discovering hidden bars and cafes.

Day 1: History, Hills & Local Flavor

Start at Rossio and head south into the Baixa district. Wander along the old shopping streets past elegant buildings with their tiled facades. At the other end of Baixa, you reach Praca do Comercio. Stop and have a coffee in one of the elegant arched cafes. Castelo de Sao Jorge has wonderful hilltop views. Wander up the old Moorish streets of the Alfama district or catch a funicular. In the other direction you'll find the lively Barrio Alto. Take the short-cut on the Santa Justa Lift. Wander through elegant Chiado district. This is a great place for finding small, family run cafes, great shops and good nightlife.

Day 2: Museums, Monasteries and the River Tagus

The western waterfront area of Belem on the River Tagus is full of museums, including a Naval Museum, an Archaeological Museum and a modern cultural center. The Torre de Belém a World Heritage fort dating from 1520, has river views of the Ponte 25 de Abril suspension bridge and, across the river, the imposing Cristo Rei statue. Jeronimos Monastery is a late Gothic masterpiece, and the Pasteis de Belém is home of the Portuguese tart.

Day 3: Day Trips from Lisbon

Sintra is famed for its gardens and turreted buildings. Enjoy the beaches on the Sunny Coast or Portuguese Riviera. Visit the Estoril casino, the Bay of Cascais and the wild waves of Boca do Inferno. Fátima  is a Catholic pilgrimage site. Nearby are other pretty villages such as the medieval Óbidos and Batalha with its UNESCO World Heritage-listed monastery. If you like wine, head for a day in Evora, the Bucelas region, or Azeitao.
