Lisbon City Guide - Useful tips & info

Things to do in Lisbon


Lisbon is the city to visit at the moment and we can see why! The undulating hills, great food, cool bars and friendly people are just some of the things that make the Portuguese capital special. Jump on the number 28 tram (before 10am is the best) for a journey around some gorgeous Lisbon streets and important sites in a vintage yellow tram.

Public transportation

Day passes that are valid on buses, trams and the metro cost €6.50 for the first day, and €5 for every additional day. However, the city center is compact and traffic can back up, so consider walking (and braving the hills!).

Lisbon is a cheap city to visit and waiters and waitresses working in restaurants in Portugal don't expect tips, but they do appreciate them. If you get good service make sure to tip well!
