Lisbon is a huge, vibrant city where traffic jams are the norm and you find a new, unexpected monument around every corner. Whether on or off the beaten path, you will love Lisbon! Now about what to plan for:
It’s worth going to Belém just for the tram ride and a visit to the bakery Pasteis de Belém. This district has many other big attractions. The Jardim da Praça do Império is Europe’s largest plaza. At Museu dos Coches you’ll fine one of the world’s biggest collection of royal coaches. Jerónimos monastery has instricately carved arches and columns. Find two museums in Jeronimos: the Museu de Marinha, where you’ll learn about the golden age navigators. The other museum is the Museu Nacional de Arqueologia, with Roman mosaics and bronze age metalwork. Combine all of this with a visit to the iconic 16th-century Torre de Belém, right on the waterfront.
Lisbon follows the river Tagus, but its essence is tied up with seafaring, fishing and adventures on the Atlantic, just around the bend of the river. It’s quick and easy to get to the beaches of Estoril and Cascais by train. Surf instructors collect you from your hotel. Get a board, wetsuit and advice, and head into the breaking waves of surf spots .
