Alfama

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.

As you can read in the other reviews, this is an old and pittoresque part of town. We did this part on foot and by e-bike. Lots of hidden gems to discover!

PodioImediato Indoor Kart Center

Reviewed By Rui G - Azeitao, Portugal

Percurso normal, funcionários da pista antipáticos e mal humorados. Tam que se ter espírito para a coisa. As pessoas vão ali para se divertirem e não para sairem de lá mal dispostas.

Fragata D. Fernando II e Gloria

Reviewed By Angela C - London, United Kingdom

If you are in Lisbon and intend visiting the Christ the King statue, then combine that with a visit to the wooden hulled frigate of the Portuguese navy nearby.
It is situated near Cacilhas on the opposite bank of the Tagus river, near the ferry terminal. Take the ferry from Lisbon's Cais do Sadre terminal, which is only €1.25 for about a 15 minute ride. Then take the 101 bus for about 15 minutes.
The frigate was launched in 1843 and has been fully restored to appear as it did then. It is kept in a dry dock and is a fascinating maritime museum. There are several decks to explore at leisure and you are free to roam amongst the life-like models that demonstrate the harsh conditions at that time. It is extremely child-friendly.
It costs €4.00 and is open daily from 10am until 5pm. Definitely worth a visit.

Praca do Comercio (Terreiro do Paco)

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.

Reviewed By VWriter - Los Gatos, California

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.

Bairro Alto

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.

Castelo de S. Jorge

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.

Reviewed By robww - London, United Kingdom

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)
