Things to do and places of interest in Lisbon

Lisbon has plenty to offer outside the city, but most of what you will want to see as a new visitor to the area is in the city centre.

  • Walk along the river beach with the breeze of the water and the scenic views of Ribeira das Naus. Many of the vendors here speak English too.
  • Be a ‘detective’ and see if you can escape a room in 60 minutes or less at Escape Hunt.
  • The Estadio da Luz is the largest stadium in the country and by far the most modern. Tours start every 20 minutes, so no matter what time you show, you can usually catch one.
  • In Terreiro do Paco, you can find the Lisboa Story Centre. As an interactive facility, you can experience the history and modernization of the area.
  • Visit the Oceanario de Lisboa, which was considered a top aquarium in the world. More than 8,000 marine creatures are found here, and the attractions are a must-see even for adults.

Tips and tricks for visiting Lisbon

Lisbon is a safe city to visit for most tourists, but you should still be prepared while you are here. For starters, the sidewalks have embedded black stones and the city prides itself in this form of walk-on art throughout the centre and hillsides. Unfortunately, these small stones are extremely slick when wet. There are also holes in some; therefore, you should proceed with caution. Be aware that the taxis are independent from the city. You can bargain with the drivers, but do not allow the driver to add extra charges. Also, make sure the driver does not turn off the meter and that they start the meter the moment you get inside the vehicle.
