Best Things To Do in Lisbon
Lisbon is probably best known for its colonialist history, ornate Manueline architecture and tradition of Fado music. But some of its best features are in the every day — spectacular hilltop vistas, pleasant year-round weather, friendly people and a true "cafe culture." To enjoy these, bring some comfortable footwear and a pocket map of the public transit system. Plan on spending a half day to a full day exploring the waterfront neighborhood of Belém, or maybe plan a day trip to Sintra, located 20 miles west of Lisbon.
