Opened in 1998, the Oceanário was the centerpiece of the XXth Century's last World Fair, themed "The Oceans, a Heritage for the Future", and eternally binds Lisbon to the Oceans.MissionThe Oceanário’s Mission is to promote knowledge of the oceans and bring up the public about the duty of protecting natural heritage, through changing their daily habits.While walking through impressive and unforgettable exhibits, visitors are encouraged to learn fascinating things about the oceans and, more importantly, how to make decisions in their daily lives that actively promote the conservation of nature.
Loved it, especially the Penguins. Made up for disappointment,net of not seeing any at the Zoo. Money well spent

We met Paulo and Dimitri when we hired them to pick us up from the airport. Their company was so nice and service so good, we contacted them for a an 8-hour day tour. After riding and walking through Lisbon's beautiful Neighborhoods, we made our way to Sintra by way of Belém, with a quick stop at a beautiful point. Paulo taught us much about Portugal's history along the way before showing us the best spot to try a bit of Ginja and another to grab a delicious Sandwich for lunch. He even recommended a spot for dinner. If you have but a day in Lisbon, you should contact these two for a tour.

Wonderful sights delight walkers at every turn in this culturally rich and charming part of Lisbon, which through its architecture reminds visitors of its Visigothic roots, Arabic influence and fishing port heritage.
I stayed in Portugal from March 2017 till November 2017 for work. I had oppurtunity to visit all best corners in Lisbon and nearby Cascais. Travelled also South to Portugal. Defenetely in every city can have different kind of Experience. Lisbon is with nice, modern, urban, cozy atmosphere.

One of the biggest squares in Europe, this stylish area in downtown Lisbon often displays beautiful works of art and sculpture, and is a great place for a leisurely stroll.
Long ago there used to be a famous landmark (Royal Rebeira Palace) on this site but it came tumbling down in the devastating 1755 earthquake. Lisbon began rebuilding its city immediately and designated this site as a commercial downtown center in the shape of a large U. The new center is near the banks of the wide, wide Tagus River and is one of Lisbon's great landmarks.
We were taken here and walked a lot, enjoying the classical architecture and beauty of this public space.

Take the Elevador de Gloria unless you like walking up steep hills. Very vibrant area - great area for shopping and cafe during the day and very lively restaurant and bar scene at night.

Open 7 days a week, Castelo de S. Jorge is now a place where you can enjoy our heritage, get to know a little about Lisboa’s History at the Permanent Exhibition, explore the traces of the Moorish neighbourhood dating back from the 11th century at the Archaeological Site, discover yet unseen sights over the city on the Camera Obscura, stroll across the Gardens and the belvederes, take a break at the Cafe do Castelo, participate of the guided tours or other didactical activities, or simply be enchanted by music, theatre, dancing and the talk shops on heritage that liven up your days at this remarkable Monument in Lisboa.
The castle is in a great spot, with commanding views of the city (no surprise there!) However the queue to enter it is long and the locality nearby is very interesting with small bars, viewing areas and hill climbing trams- so your time might be better spent exploring the area than waiting in a queue. (Perhaps queue jump tickets prebooked are available)
