Apartment holidays in Lisbon - Travel Guide

The capital of Portugal, Lisbon is a city as wonderful for tourists to explore by day as it is by night. For a great introduction to the city, you can’t go past a ride on iconic Tram 28, which offers incredible views as it passes some of Lisbon’s best and most picturesque tourist attractions. Tram 28 begins its journey in Graca, before winding its way through Alfama, Baixa, Chiado, Bairro Alto and finally Campo Ourique. For more static sightseeing, make your way to Rossio, Lisbon’s main square, for a spot of people watching amongst the locals. Then, catch the ferry across the Tejo River to take in the spectacular views from the top of the Cristo Rei. For more exceptional views, head for Castelo de São Jorge (St. George's Castle), or perhaps catch the Santa Justa Elevator from downtown Lisbon to the heights of Bairro Alto. If all those tourist attractions have worked up an appetite, you can’t go past the delicious peri-peri smothered chicken at Bonjardim restaurant on Rua das Portas de Santo Antão, perhaps finished off with one of those delicious little Portuguese custard tarts. If you choose self-catering Lisbon accommodation, you can also take advantage of the excellent Mercado da Ribeira food market. By stocking up on fresh fruit, vegetables, meats, cheeses and bread, you’ll not only save money on dining out, but experience a true taste of local Lisbon life.

When to go to Lisbon

Lisbon is a fantastic year round holiday destination, with a mild climate across all seasons – the average temperature is a lovely 17°. Tourists can expect hot summer days and warm, sunny weather in spring and autumn.

Getting to and around Lisbon

Most tourists arrive in Lisbon via flights to Aeroporto da Portela. Once in Lisbon, the city is serviced by an excellent public transport system, including the metro, buses and trams. One of Lisbon’s greatest tourist delights, however, is wandering the narrow streets and alleys.
