I won’t waste your time with much pre-amble! Lisbon is easily one of my most favourite cities in Europe and so exciting! It’s got a really vibrant art scene and a great energy about it.
Here’s a quick list to help you make the most of your trip to Lisbon.
1.) Jerónimos Monastery: This is one of the most stunning gothic architecture in Lisbon! Amazing in photos but even more impressive in person!
2.) Get a pastry at Pastéis de Belém. They’re soooooooooo delicious!
3.) Visit Castelo de São Jorge
4.) Rossio & Praça da Figueira: The main square and the perfect place to start your adventure in Lisbon!
5.) Praça do Comércio: First off, pop round to the little ice cream shop around the corner from here and with your ice cream in hand, explore all the shops Praça do Comércio has to offer.
6.) Take in the view of Lisbon from the Torre de Belém
7.) Tram 28: Take this tram across the old part of Lisbon. This is the perfect way to immerse yourself in the true spirit of Lisbon!
8.) Get a Ginjinha… or two… or three…
9.) Take in the view of Lisbon from Santa Justa Lift
10.) Explore the nightlife in Bairro Alto… and definitely get yourself a Caipirinha or two. Don’t worry if you don’t know what that is just yet, you’ll find out when you get there. 🙂
11.) Get lost in Alfama: A perfect way to truly get the most out of the city
