Lisbon Highlights

Great things to do in and around Lisbon

Foodie Tour in Lisboa

Tapas laid out on a table in Lisbon, Portugal.

A Lisbon day tour has to feature food or it is just not Lisbon. Personally chosen family and historic restaurants feature very special flavors in this walking tour focused on the historic district of Alfama. How does 14 tastes sound? Yes, please. Portugal’s Age of Exploration and New World conquest created a fascinating blend of unique foods. – by Viator

River Tejo Sunset Catamaran Cruise

A seafaring city visit is not complete without boarding a boat sometime during your trip. Choosing a sunset cruise with specialty Portuguese tastes is a natural. Enjoy sausages, cheeses wine or soft drinks as you cruise the harbor and get the water’s eye view of Lisbon. – by Get Your Guide

Fado Music Experience

Visit the Montmartre of Lisbon, Chiado. Your live show features Fado, the famous Portuguese singing style. Exemplary guitar playing showcases the melancholy folky style of the music. A great night out in Lisbon. – by Viator

Small Group to Sintra

Colorful historic buildings in the town of Sintra in Portugal.

Just outside Lisbon is the historic town of Sintra. Its glorious colors and architecture are really a world treasure. You’ll visit the National Palace of Pena, the tunnels at Quinta da Regaleira and choose your won lunch spot for an extended time in the center of Sintra. A stop at Cabo da Roca and the beach town of Cascais finishes your day. Like many historic European tours, this is best enjoyed by those who love to walk. – by Viator

Our Lady of Fatima and Valinhos Day Trip

A statue of the virgin Mary in Lisbon, Portugal.

In 1917, three children herding sheep had a succession of visions of the Virgin Mary. Believers soon flocked to the area, and the Pope eventually canonized the visions and blessed the Virgin Mary statue at a nearby church. The shrine attracts millions of visitors a year. Your small van trip is timed to allow you to attend mass and really appreciate the local history. – by Get Your Guide
