Here's what Trippy members had to say about attractions:

"then walk back through the maze of narrow streets and alleyways which make up the ancient Alfama district."  See More

"We visited Castelo de S Jorge (worth paying extra to visit the Camera Obscura, but only if the weather is good)."  See More

"Bairro Alto, Parque das Nacoes and Lapa are close to the center and you'll find hundreds of good options for sleep, food and drink."  See More

"Lisbon, a mix of tradition, culture, modernity has a lot of places u should visit: the Miradouros, Rossio Railway Station, Jardins De Belem-construções, Lda, Parque Eduardo VII, Santa Catarina, Praça do Comércio, Chiado"  See More

"What a nice treat for your Mum! I'm sure you'll both enjoy Lisbon. :-) I've visited the city several times but never heard of 'Santa Maria' as a district...just the cathedral. Unless you mean the area near the cathedral I think you must mean the recently-created (2012) district (freguesia) of Santa Maria Maior shown on the map here? The district covers the districts of Baixa and Alfama (the oldest part of Lisbon) and a small part of Bairro Alto too. It's what you might term the 'historical heart' of Lisbon, easy to walk around and with lots of shops, places to eat & drink and sights such as the Se (cathedral) and the Castelo de São Jorge . Lisbon's famous funiculars (elevadores) are also in the area: Elevador da Gloria, Elevador da Bica, Elevador do Lavra and the Elevador de Santa Justa (which is actually a lift/elevator) and well as the visitor-popular tram 28 which winds its way through the historical heart (and is highly recommended). I always stay somewhere in this area, usually near Praça dos Restauradores which is convenient for airport bus & Metro, for trains to Sintra from Rossio Station and trains to Cascais & Estoril from Cais do Sodre station. Hope that helps. :"  See More

"And you can go to ELEVADOR DA GLÓRIA its well known by tourists, and you got a good view of lisbon, and in Miradouro Sao Pedro de Alcantara you got a great view as well, and from there you can see Hard Rock Cafe Lisbon."  See More

"And you can take it at Metro Santa Apolónia or Metro Oriente Station."  See More

"A third suggestion is the Belém Cultural Center where you can find the Museu Berardo that is a modern art museum."  See More

"Although it's probably the most touristy thing you can do in Lisbon, don't miss to take a ride with the historical Tram 28."  See More

"Take the alfa train (2H30) in Metro Santa Apolónia"  See More
