What to do in Lisbon
Lisbon is the capital of Portugal, and it’s a city filled with rich history, culture, natural sights, manmade wonders, and so much more. Lisbon charms travellers from all over the world with its white limestone buildings, intimate alleyways, vibrant trams, and easy-going way of life.
Be transported to San Francisco when you see the Ponte 25 de Abril bridge over Tagus River. Watch the sunrise or sunset and marvel at the sight of the Ponte Vasco de Gama bridge too.
Another fantastic spot to view the river is the beautiful plaza of Praca do Comercio. Get a unique vertical view of the Baixa streets by hopping on the Santa Justa Lift. For panoramic views of the city, just visit the garden of Miradouro Sao Pedro de Alcantara.
Lisbon also has some amazing museums in the different districts of the city. Feast your eyes on the National Museum of Ancient Art, the Roman Theatre Museum, Maritime Museum, National Coach Museum, Museu Colecao Berardo, and the National Tile Museum. There are plenty more in the city for the culture vulture in you.
Enjoy the best food in Lisbon too, before you continue exploring the city. Marvel at the sight and architecture of the Igreja do Carmo ruins. Bring your camera next to St George’s Castle, where you’ll also get amazing views of the city.
You can’t miss the Belem district for the impressive Belem Tower, Jeronimos Monastery, and Monument to the Discoveries. Don’t forget to add a touch of nature to your pictures at the Ajuda Botanical Gardens and from the beaches of Costa da Caparica and Troia.
