City highlights, food & drinks, expressions, weather, how to get there and how to get around

During your Lisbon day trips, enjoy spectacular landscapes, pleasant weather and a true “cafe culture”. Traverse up and down Lisbon’s old cobblestone streets, sampling local street food and enjoying music from native artists. Wander around the eclectic downtown area and tour the Castelo de Sao Jorge castle. Climb to the top of the Discoveries Monument and see the amazing views of the Tagus estuary. Get a taste of luxury at the World’s Most Expensive Chapel and learn about ancient art at Lisbon’s Ancient Art Museum. Ride Tram 28 to hit all of the tourist spots or enjoy soulful Fado music in a local café

Visit the Belem tower that stands on the shoreline and spend the afternoon lazing around in the sunshine at Belem Tower’s park and promenade. Explore the Jeronimos Monastery and the Berardo Museum. Wander around Parque Das Nacoes, looking at the aquarium and wonderful waterfront boardwalk

Enjoy the creamy tarts called Pastéis de Nata, especially ones that are warm from the oven, and coffee in the morning and steaming bowls of caldo verde at night.  Sample a variety of cheeses and wines and savor the famous national dish of Portugal – salt cold, called bacalhau

“Yes” is “Sim” in Portuguese and “Nao” is “No”. To say “Good day”, you would say “Boa nita” and “Hello” is “Ola”. To ask someone “How are you?”, ask “Como vai?” and “Pleased to meet you” is “Prazer em conhece”

Summers are bright and sunny, with dry weather averaging the 80s. Fall hover around the 60s to the 70s and little rain. Winters are cooler, between the upper 50s and 60s, with lots of rain. Spring is mild, between 60 and 75 degrees

Taxis are often the fastest and easiest way to reach the city from the airport and should cost between 10 and 15 Euros. Taking the AeroBus costs about 3.5 Euros and a one-way ticket for the subway is 1.5 Euros

Lisbon’s city center is really easy to get around by foot or bike. Trams and subways run around most of the city. Do not forget to zip around town on the electric train or travel by bus. Renting a car is also an interesting option
