    Elaine, I hope you have a great trip to Lisbon! It's a really cool city--how long are you staying?


    First of all, shameless plug for my travel blog because I have an article about what to do (and what not to do!) in Lisbon: http://www.valisemag.com/lisbon/


    But so you don't have to click if you don't want to (though I'd love the feedback), here are the highlights:

    • Check out the night life in Bairro Alto.Bairro Altoimage from cool-lisbon.blogspot.comIt's a hopping neighborhood with tons of street-level restaurants and bars, and lots of people wandering about--even if you don't drink, it's a good spot to do some people watching.
    • Skip hotel breakfast and brunch locally, somewhere like Poison d'Amour. You'll get a much better 'taste' of local culture and cuisine!
    • There's a toss up between visiting Sao Pedro de Alcantara SÃO PEDRO DE ALCÂNTARAfor a great view of the city including the castle, or going to Castelo de São Jorge directly. The view from the castle might be better, but the view from the park actually has the castle in it... so, tradeoff there, or just do both!

    Anyway, have a FANTASTIC trip!Castelo de São Jorge

    Lisbon, perhaps the city I love the most ;-)

    it is just S P E L L B I N D I N G.

    Visit Oriente with its beautiful Parque das Nações, Calatrava's Railway Station & Bridge

    Orienteand the Oceanário de Lisboa; you might also enjoy walking by the River Tejo or spending some time on the Teleférico (Lisbon cable car).

    I recommend you take a walk around Graça and Alfama (better in daylight; when the sun goes down, it gets a little bit creepy...) Alfama + visit the Castelo de São Jorge Castelo de São Jorge & the Lisbon Cathedral.Lisbon CathedralThe Bairro Alto, Rossio and the Baixa are fascinating and just perfect for a night/evening walk. You might also like Convento Do Carmo,Convento Do Carmothe Jerónimos Monastery

    Jerónimos Monasteryand the Belém tower

    BelémHave at least one dinner at "Lisboa à Noite" (website) Lisbon's best seafood restaurant in my opinion, try the real Ginjinha at Largo de Sao Domingos 8 and have lunch at Pois Cafe (website). Have breakfast at Pasteleria 1800 (Largo do Rato 7) and don't miss the Berardo Collection Museum (website) if you like modern and contemporary art.

    Should you have time for a couple of days out, think about visiting Sintra, Cascais and Cabo da Roca.

    I hope this may help you,

    have a great time in Lisbon!

    Caterina

    On top of the good suggestions you already have I would also like to recommend the area called Belém which is full of interesting historical sights.


    For some new architecture Parque das Nações is really good.

    This was the place where the EXPO 98 was held.


    One of the best art museums in Europe is Gulbenkian Gardens if you are in to that kinda stuff.


    And finally I would recommend that you rent a bike and take a bike tour along the Tejo River.

    bikeiberia is a really good place to rent bikes and they are right by the river where the bike trail along the Tejo river starts.

    Hi Elaine, it depends of the days you'll be arround, theres a lot of things to do and see!

    Bairro Alto is a place to and have dinner o a drink

    Alfama and it's narrow streets is a must. Plan to have dinner and look for some some fado resataurante arround Museu do Fado

    Go to Castelo de São Jorge and enjoy the views

    you should go also to Portas Do Sol and going down visit the Lisbon Cathedral

    when you arrive to PRAÇA DO COMÉRCIO you can enjoy the nice river front until Cais do Sodre

    From there you can go to Chiado and up to Miradouro Sao Pedro de Alcantara and Principe Real

    Go to Avenida da Liberdade

    Another zone you should not miss is Belém to see several monuents and musems National Coach Museum and Museu Berardo

    if you like old masterpieces visit Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga

    Absolutely gourgeous are Gulbenkian Gardens and museum

    If you still have time and wish to know the modern lisbon take the subway to Oriente and walk arround


    For nighlife I sugest the area arround Pensão Amor , bairro alto and Lux-Frágil

    You can find great food all arround.


    if you have time go and visit Sintra

    I would recommend Cooking Lisbon. I went in August and had the most amazing experience. You get to actually cook the food, and chat to the chefs whilst you're cooking. Its lots of fun.
