There's more to do in Lisbon than just seeing the sights. Within minutes you can find yourself lying on the sand and swimming in the ocean, playing golf by the coast, surfing in World Championship waves, enjoying a drink at one of Europe's most vibrant nightlife neighborhoods, or taking advantage of the city's relatively low prices and shopping 'til you drop.
We have prepared a list of sights, museums, ideas for the top 10 Lisbon experiences, suggest a few itineraries, and let you know about all the upcoming events in the city.
To get the best views and take the perfect photos of it all, we recommend visiting the many vantage points dotted around the city, and if you're short on time, you may take one of the many professionally organized excursions within the capital or to outlying areas like Sintra or Estoril.
And don't hesitate to sample the local cuisine. Lisbon has some of the best-value restaurants and cafés of any European capital, serving large portions at sensible prices.
Also don't forget to take a look at our shopping directory that provides all the information you need to buy whatever you wish, or if you're more of a night owl, you may like to check out some of the city's bars and clubs.
Looking to experience some of the local culture? Consider a night at a fado house to listen to the city's melancholic music.
To enjoy the outdoors, choose one of the many beautiful beaches around the city. Surfers will be in paradise on these shores, as will golfers, who will find excellent golf courses.
Whatever your preference, you can be sure that there is always plenty to do in Lisbon.
