Mallory, I did Lisbon for three days on a student budget last year! Here are my suggestions (#shamelessplug):

Here's the quick version :)

1. Be sure to check out Bairro Alto! It's the neighborhood with all the bars and restaurants and nightlife. It's pretty cost effective too, just wander about until you find places you want to pop into, and enjoy!

2. Check out the Jardim de São Pedro de Alcântara - Jardim António Nobre. You'll see some amazing views of the city, and can see why they say it's a city of hills! There are lots of neat restaurants nearby too, since it's toward the top of Bairro Alto.

3. Baixa is a great neighborhood--I stayed near there, and went out for dinner too! It's also the better area to go to clubs, if that's something you're interested. It's kinda scary to go clubbing near Cais do Sodre, from what I remember!

Have a great time! Hopefully others can give restaurant recommendations too!

The museums are free on the first Sunday of the month. Go to Praça do Comércio, Bairro Alto, Ribeira Market in Cais do Sodre, Torre de Belém,Jerónimos Monastery,Estação do Oriente, CASA DA GUIA CASCAIS and Boca do Inferno. All tours can be made by public transport.

I Hope this helped a little bit, if you need to plan any other aspect of your trip, don´t hesitate to send me a e-mail.

Hi Mallory.

When you arrive in Lisbon, I suggest you to buy a Three Days Travel Card. It will permit you travel in all the Metro and bus (Carris) network. You can start visiting the Parque Eduardo VII and Marquês de Pombal, down the Avenida da Liberdade to Rossio. Continue to Rua Augusta and at the bottom of this you can visit the Arco da Rua Augusta and Praça do Comércio. Up to the Lisbon Cathedral, Largo das Portas do Sol and Castelo de São Jorge. (Is a long way, but easily done)

Another day you can visit the Parque das Nações and the monuments around as the cable car, the Oceanário de Lisboa and the Parques Tejo, where you can see the Vasco da Gama Bridge. Taking the Bus n.º 28 you can go to Belém and visit the Jerónimos Monastery, the Belém Cultural Center and the Torre de Belém. (Oh, don't forget to eat a Pastel de Belem).

Amazing answer, Jussan! Saving this for when I visit Lisbon! By the way, I'm a community manager here and I've helped you highlight the places in your answer on a map! In the future, you can do this yourself as you answer a question by simply typing the @-symbol followed by the name of the place. Take a look at your map next to your answer :)

3 places on 3 days to visit.

1- Castelo de São Jorge ( you dont need to get inside it, because now it's paid, but the litle streets around it are a must see and feels. Then Chiado, Terreiro do Paço and Bairro Alto at night, has the most amazing bars and people.

2- Belém, please eat the Pasteis de Belem, you'll be amazed! Have lunch at Pão Pão Queijo Queijo, cheat and great food.

3- Go to Cascais, a small beach town, 30 minutes from train (around 3,5€ each trip). You'll love its beautiful

Suerte :)
