Top 10 things to do in Lisbon

Lisbon (or locally “Lisboa”) is beautiful city full of history, great cuisine, traditional music and an amazing costal line sculpted over the millennia by the Atlantic Ocean. Lots of discoveries stared here in Lisbon and many different cultures passed through Lisbon shaping the city as it is today. Lisbon (but also Portugal in general) offers great atmosphere through is national Fado music and great culinary tradition.

In general there is a lot of things to do while visiting Lisbon but we tried to pick for you the most important activities, which you could miss if you just stroll around the city on your own.

Visit Sintra

1. Visit Sintra


Sintra is one of the most popular destinations when visiting Lisbon. Taking a tour to Sintra will let you hear about the history of the region and most tours to Sintra also show you the famous Pena palace, the Sintra national park, Cabo da Roca (Cape Roca), Praia do Guincho (Guincho Beach), Boca do Inferno (Hell's Mouth) -> basically the most important landmarks of the region! We highly recommend taking this tour! View all tours to Sintra from Lisbon

Visit Fatima

2. Visit Fatima


Fatima is the biggest Christian sanctuary of the region. It houses a very interesting story of the apparitions of the Virgin Mary, which regardless weather you are a believer or not, will leave you thinking how come there where so many witnesses and how come the catholic church recognized the apparitions. There are many tours to Fatima that also stop in other interesting destinations in the vicinity such as Óbidos, Nazaré, Batalha and others, so check your options before you decide! View all tours to Fatima from Lisbon


Explore the Arrabida nature park

3. Explore the Arrábida nature park


Arrábida is fantastic nature park just south of Lisbon and is a must see for any nature lover! Arrábida is a mountain range so you can expect great panoramic views from the top and probably a few stops to taste local wines in the local wineries. View all tours to the Arrábida Natural Park

Buy a hop on hop off ticket

4. Buy a hop-on hop-off ticket


Lisbon has one of the best hop-on hop-off system we witnessed so far. With one ticket you get 7 different lines including 4 bus lines, 2 tram lines and one boat line! It will easily get you through the city for the duration of your stay. The lines are very regular so you will not experience a full bus :) You can still opt to choose only the lines that you think are necessary for you in order to pay less. View all hop-on hop-off tours in Lisbon



Enjoy a night listening to Fado music

5. Enjoy a night listening to Fado music


Visiting Lisbon and not listening at least once the traditional Fado music live would be such a shame. We suggest taking a dinner at some local restaurant where they play the music live or choose one of the tours that will guarantee you a great experience, and also let you know about the history of the music. View all the Fado music tours in Lisbon

Explore the city on a bike

6. Explore the city on a bike


If you have stamina, taking a bike tour is the best way to see the city. Lisbon is quite big and steep and going on foot will be ok, but will not get you very far. On the other hand taking a bike will get you the benefit of going through small but very picturesque alleys of the city while still being able to see a bigger part of the city in a shorter period of time. Take a look at all the bike tours from Lisbon

Try traditional local food

7. Try traditional local food


Seafood, tapas and Port wine are just a few things you need to try while visiting Portugal. Their local cuisine is very tasty and we suggest either taking one of our tours that will take you to the best places in town to eat traditional Portuguese meals or find the best places yourself, but whatever you do, don’t miss on the local food as it is a part of the Portuguese tradition as the landmarks you came to see. View all food and gourmet tours in Lisbon


Taste wines and visit local wineries

8. Taste wines and visit local wineries


Portugal has a lot of excellent and world famous wines and wine producers that if you have the extra time, we suggest going on a professionally guided tours of the local wineries. Find out about the traditions of grape cultivation of the region, and along the way, as it’s not a good idea to drink on an empty stomach, try excellent Portuguese dishes. View all wine and winery tour from Lisbon

Take a boat tour on the Tagus river

9. Take a boat tour on the Tagus river


Lisbon is located at the point where the river Tagus enters the Atlantic Ocean. Lisbon is on the north part of the river while the south part is divided into smaller city parishes. The north and south of the river are connected by 2 impressive bridges, the “Vasco da Gama” bridge and the “25 de Abril” Bridge. Taking a boat tour will give a different and very interesting view of the city which is highly recommended. Also – you might encounter dolphins which will definitely make your boat tour out of the ordinary. View all the boat tours from Lisbon

Take a guided walking tour

10. Take a guided walking tour


Of course you will walk around the city, but viewing some of the attractions without someone that will let you know what they are about and what stories are they hiding is like reading poetry in a language you don’t understand. Ok, maybe not as extreme, but get a guide to at least explain you a bit about the São Jorge (Saint George) Castle, Belém Tower and the Jerónimos Monastery as we think those are the most important sights in Lisbon center.

Very very pleased with our tour guide Mauro. Amazing trip to Fátima shrine. He was very knowledgeable and did an excellent job. Professionalism was just great. Driving was excellent. I would for sure recommend to all my friends. Really enjoyed the company and all the site-seeing. Cheers to Mauro & the entire team. Thanks Bede Joseph.

On excursion: Lisbon Hills Tramcar: Hop On Hop Off Ticket Tour (24 Hours)
Five star

The service of HAPPYtoVISIT was an absolute 10! This review is not so much about them but much rather about the company Yellowbus from which this offer is. When we arrived at the hotel in Lisbon, the reception told us to go to the desk on the square to get our tickets with the printed out voucher. Ones there the desk person told us to go to another office. Once there, the person behind the desk told us to go to the bus driver and the bus driver told us to go to yet another desk office. After almost of an hour walking all together we got at the desk office near the Taugus river. We gave her the voucher and she told us that this offer does not exist anymore and that we could only get the 4-in-one (3 bus tours and a Belem tram). I specifically chose this one for the Red Hills and Castle Tramcar Tour since that one goes all the way up the hills and I am pregnant so can't walk that much. She said too bad this is all we can offer so we did take it. I immediately contacted the help service from HAPPYtoVISIT and they contacted me back the next day apologizing that we didn't receive what we order, apparently the company Yellowbus never gave them an update that they do not have this offer anymore. They gave me a free Hills and Castle Tramcar Tour! So I have to say I am absolutely happy with them and would definitely book my other tours through them as well!!

very good value for money. The guide is via and a smartphone provided and is very good. You can listen at your own pace and go where you wish. I really enjoyed the trip and would highly recommend it. It would be easy enough to spend the day. I only went for the half day and found time went really quickly.
