Visiting Lisbon – A City Guide
Rising up from the banks of the River Tagus, Lisbon is a spectacular city of cobbled streets and hilltop views. It has all the museums, restaurants and boutiques you’d expect of a European capital, but with a refreshingly laid-back attitude.

 

Lisbon: city layout

The city fans out from Praça do Comércio, a large square beside the River Tagus. To the north lies Baixa, packed with shops and restaurants, and to the east ancient trams head up the hill to the castle and on to the picturesque Alfama district.

The majestic Avenida da Liberdade runs north of Baixa, while to the west are chic Chiado and Bairro Alto, a warren of restaurants and bars.

Down on the riverfront, the Cais do Sodré neighbourhood is another nightlife hotspot. It’s also a transport hub for ferries across the river or trams that take you west to the monasteries and monuments of Belém.

 

Top attractions in Lisbon
Your top priority in Lisbon should be to roam the neighbourhoods on foot. You’re sure to stumble across tile-clad buildings, panoramic viewpoints and terraced restaurants selling grilled sardines. The Moorish neighbourhood of Alfama is full of such delights, as is Mouraria, beneath the São Jorge Castle walls.

The castle itself offers spectacular views. Nearby is medieval Sé de Lisboa, Lisbon’s first church. Both are served by the number 28 tram, an iconic route that also takes in Baixa, Chiado, São Bento Palace (home to the parliament) and the 18th-century Estrela Basilica. Time your ride for early or late in the day to avoid crowds.

Trams also head west to Belém, home of the Belém Tower and the Jerónimos Monastery, two of the oldest buildings in Lisbon, as well as the Centro Cultural de Belém (CCB), a haven for art lovers.

More art can be found north of the city centre at the Gulbenkian Foundation, a multi-building complex surrounded by gardens. To the east, the waterside Oceanarium is a big draw.

 

The concierge recommends…

  • Get lost in the Alfama; you’ll hit upon tiny neighbourhood bars and impromptu fado music.
  • Tour the city’s miradouros (viewpoints); start with Senhora do Monte, São Pedro de Alcântara and Santa Catarina.
  • Take the ferry across the river to Cacilhas parish for great seafood and panoramic views of Lisbon.
  • The Portuguese love football; go see Benfica or Sporting Lisbon play, or join locals to watch a game in a bar.

 

Hotels in Lisbon
Lisbon is easy to navigate on foot or via metro, so there’s no great need to be based downtown. Located halfway between the airport and the city centre, Avenida da República is in the heart of the commercial district and close to the Gulbenkian park and galleries, making it one of the best places to stay for business travellers and city-breakers alike.

The tree-lined Avenida da Liberdade runs from Baixa to Parque Eduardo VII, a park overlooked by some of the best hotels in Lisbon. There are a number of top hotels on Avenida da Liberdade itself, and in and around Praça Marquês de Pombal and Praça dos Restauradores, the squares that bookend the boulevard.

The coastal towns of Oeiras and Estoril on Lisbon’s western outskirts offer the best of both worlds for families and city-breakers: hotels with beaches on the doorstep just a 30-minute train ride away from the city.

 

Eating Out in Lisbon
Portuguese cuisine is based on seasonal produce and simple cooking techniques. It’s hard to beat eating grilled sardines in an Alfama courtyard, washed down with a glass of vinho verde, a young white wine.

Chiado is where you’ll find boutique restaurants that put a modern spin on traditional dishes, while neighbouring Bairro Alto and Santa Catarina abound with bars serving petiscos, Portuguese tapas. Try salada de polvo (octopus salad), pica-pau (marinated beef strips) and any of Portugal’s pungent soft cheeses.

At Cais do Sodré, the Mercado da Ribeira is a produce market with a vast food court to one side. Northeast of the city centre, the multicultural neighbourhoods of Anjos and Mouraria are ideal for discovering the delicious cooking of Portugal’s former colonies, such as Mozambique, Cape Verde and Goa.

 

The chef recommends...

  • Bacalhau: It’s said the Portuguese have as many bacalhau (codfish) recipes as there are days in the year. Begin with bacalhau à brás, a codfish, scrambled egg, olive and fried potato combo.
  • Pastries: Indulge in pastel de nata (custard tart), but don’t overlook the queijada, a spongy tart flavoured with almond, orange or coconut.
  • Bifana: Lisbon’s signature sandwich, made with two pork loins in a bun. Best eaten while standing at the bar with an imperial (draft beer).
  • Ginja: Hole-in-the-wall bars selling this cherry brandy are dotted about town. Two of the oldest and best, A Ginjinha and Ginjinha Sem Rival, face each other behind the national theatre in Rossio.

 

Shopping in Lisbon
Lisbon is a city where multinational emporiums stand next to specialist stores that have been selling nothing but gloves or hats for the last hundred years. You’ll find a rich variety of these old-school shops in Baixa. For top brand names, head to Chiado and Avenida da Liberdade.

Armazéns do Chiado is a downtown shopping centre. Larger suburban malls include Colombo, next to the Benfica football stadium, and Centro Vasco da Gama at Parque das Nações.

In Príncipe Real, the city’s trendiest shopping district, Embaixada gathers a multitude of fashion, jewellery and handicraft independents in a 19th-century palace. Another good bet for independent labels is LX Factory, a collection of shops and artist studios set in former warehouses.

East of the city centre, the Feira da Ladra flea market fills the streets around the Panteão Nacional every Tuesday and Saturday.

 

Best Retro Shops in Lisbon

  • Casa Macário: This traditional store has been supplying patrons with chocolate, coffee, wine and spirits since 1913. Some bottles of port are older than the shop itself.
  • Loja das Conservas: A giant bazaar of canned goods with 300 types of tinned fish and seafood from all over Portugal. Most labels feature original designs from long-standing companies.
  • A Vida Portuguesa: A showcase for a vast range of traditional Portuguese products, from soaps to ceramics, shawls to stationary.
  • Luvaria Ulisses: This tiny store with an art deco interior has been supplying Lisboans with gloves since 1925.

 

Culture & Nightlife in Lisbon
Seafaring has shaped many aspects of Portuguese culture, not least its folk music, fado, which is infused with the anguish of sailors leaving loved ones behind. The best fado bars are found in the Alfama, Mouraria and Bairro Alto neighbourhoods.

There’s a strong overseas element to the rest of Lisbon’s music scene too. B.Leza is a great place to experience African music, Brazilian artists regularly play at Musicbox and Zé dos Bois, and international DJs headline at Lux, Lisbon’s premier nightclub. There are bars to suit all tastes in Bairro Alto and Cais do Sodré, while Príncipe Real is home to Lisbon’s gay scene.

For a classical vibe, the Gulbenkian Foundation hosts frequent free concerts. It’s also popular with art lovers thanks to the Museu Calouste Gulbenkian and the Modern Art Centre. You’ll find more contemporary art at the Museu Coleção Berardo and the Electricity Museum in Belém.

 

Best Rooftop Bars

  • Park: This happening bar offers cocktails, loungers and sweeping views of the 25th of April bridge.
  • Topo: Atop the Martim Moniz shopping centre, this bar and tapas restaurant has panoramic views of the castle.
  • Le Chat: Sophisticated drinks, funky beats and the perfect vantage point to watch the world go by down on the river.
  • Miradouro de Graça: You’ll find kiosks selling drinks and snacks at most viewpoints, but Graça’s, officially known as the Miradouro Sophia de Mello Breyner Andersen, is hard to beat for sunsets.

 

Visiting Lisbon with a Family
The Portuguese are family-oriented people and most hotels and restaurants are child-friendly. Parks such as Jardim da Estrela and Campo de Santa Clara have cafés where adults can sit soaking up the views while children play in playgrounds.

The Botanical Gardens features a butterfly house, Lisbon Zoo has the usual attractions in respectable surrounds, and the Oceanarium has an amazing variety of fish and a delightful pair of sea otters. Or experience sea life in the wild at beaches scattered along the coast from Lisbon to Oeiras, Estoril and Cascais, all 20 to 30 minutes away by train.

For rainy day diversions, try the Pavilhão do Conhecimento, a science museum full of interactive exhibits, or the Benfica Football Club museum and stadium tour.

 

Fun Ways To See Lisbon

  • Tram: Lisbon’s old-fashioned trams are fairground rides as much as they are convenient ways to get around. The number 28 has the most interesting route, but the 12 is less crowded.
  • Cable Car: Take a riverside ride over the Parque das Nações up to the Vasco de Gama bridge.
  • São Jorge Castle: This imposing castle has walls to scramble on, peacocks roaming the courtyards and birds-eye views of Lisbon and the Tagus River.

Great Hotel, beautiful views and wonder location
By Oceanscape
This is a beautiful hotel, situated at a wonderful location with beautiful views from the rooms or balcony over sea. The staff are great, attentive, knowledgeable of the local areas and ensures you [More] stay is taken care of. This is a very modern hotel with beautiful amenities to ensure comfortable stay. We loved it. Just a short walk to beautiful cascais. It is also very easy to travel and explore Lisbon and the surrounding areas from here. [Less]
Great hotel with opportunities to be even better
By Johnson73
In short, the InterContinental Estoril is an excellent hotel, with comfortable, super-clean, well equipped, modern and tastefully decorated rooms. In terms of guest rooms there is not much to improve [More] upon, but three things annoyed me nevertheless; First - to be charged 100 Euros pre-preemptively, as if I'm not trusted to pick up my bill should there be something to pay after my stay. Feels like a cheap motel where guests are expected to steal the shower curtain. Second - during a group gathering in the evening we were meeting at the lobby floor area with a decorated table featuring different spirits. When I asked for a whisky the waiter looked embarrassed, wrung his hands and explained that the whisky was terribly expensive and suggested I have a gin instead. Laughable service. Third - if you explicitly promise water and fruit in your room, double check that it's there. I got the water but there was no fruit to be seen. Not a big deal per se but it's better to not promise anything than to promise and not deliver. [Less]
Easter Break in Estoril

5 night stay in Estoril, following a 5 night stay break in Lisboa. The Intercontinental Hotel opened in July 2015, is well located looking down on the rail station for Monte Estoril.

Facilities Provided

The only shortfall we encountered was the lack of an "in room safe". We were carrying more cash and other valuables than we found comfortable leaving in the room without a safe. also, we did not feel [More] comfortable walking about carrying this amount of valuables. [Less]

Great service and enjoyable experience all round
By Sectionprobably
We enjoyed a four night city break at the Lisbon Intercontinental Hotel in April 2016. From our arrival to departure the staff could not have been more helpful from reception/concierge staff, to bar [More] staff and service at breakfast and lunch. The breakfast choice was amazing and we looked forward to it each day, we also stayed one day for lunch and the pasta was delicious and the cost of the very good wine amazingly inexpensive Our room was a good size, very comfortable and spotlessly clean, very quiet (we were on 16th floor) [Less]

Interconti Lisbon is managed and run by a great group of friendly and accommodating great staff. I love always to come back to Lisbon [Less]
The best Interncontinental
By acctutor
We have stayed at Intercontinental hotels around the world, Sydney, Hong Kong etc, but Lisbon we believe is the best hotel at which we have ever stayed. Every member of staff has been exemplary, but [More] I would suggest that Rita, Phillipa and Reuben in the Club lounge, have been above exemplary; professional, charming, helpful and always smiling, they are a credit to the hotel, and I am sure are on the path to higher things. The room is superb, the view from 1506 cannot be beaten, the maid service without question the best we have ever had, huge I mean HUGE, soft bath towels. The restaurant food is exemplary, and just an example of staff attitude, on the first day we met the front of house manager, John, seven days later when checking out we nmet him again, and he remebered our name, that is why this hotel is perfect. The hotel is just a few minutes from Marques de Pombal metro, superb location, and 10 minutes from El Cortes Ingles, a wonderful mega store. I wish I could find just something very small to fault, but it is no good, I give up!!!! As Arnie would say "We will be back" Bill & Patsy [Less]
