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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
