1 day in Lisbon: what to do, see or discover?

Are you visiting the capital, but only for 1 day? 24h is more than enough time to discover wonderful places, enjoy breathtaking landscapes, taste the most city’s traditional food and learn a little about its history.

Because your time in Lisbon should be used in the best way, we present a non-stop tour through the typical neighbourhoods of the capital, that will lead you to the most traditional and picturesque areas; places that represent the city's deepest roots.

Step 1. Discover Mouraria
Get up very early and get ready to go to Martim Moniz so you can use the escalators that go up to the Castelo de São Jorge. Your first stop is Bairro da Mouraria (Mouraria neighbourhood).

Step 2. Discover Alfama
Go, by walking, to Largo das Portas do Sol, taking advantage of the midday light to take some pictures and to get to know the beautiful Bairro de Alfama (Alfama neighbourhood).

Step 3. Have lunch at Campo de Ourique market
Take the famous tram 28 towards Campo de Ourique - Prazeres to have lunch at the Campo de Ourique market, a very popular place in the city. Your stop will be Igreja do Santo Condestável.

Step 4. Discover Madragoa
After lunch, take the tram 28 again, now towards Martim Moniz, choosing the Largo de Santos-o-Velho stop. Very close to this neighbourhood, you can visit the peculiar Museu da Marioneta and/or the important  Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga. 

Step 5. Dinner at Chiado
Take the tram 28, one last time, towards Martim Moniz and now choose the Largo de Camões stop. If you prefer a more bohemian dinner, prepared by a Michelin-starred chef, visit Bairro Alto Hotel Restaurant. However, if you want to relax in a more informal place, in the Chiado neighbourhood you have at your disposal several other fantastic options for your meal.

Step 6. End your day at Bairro Alto
After your dinner, there’s no doubt about your next move: go to Bairro Alto and discover the nightlife of the neighbourhood and the capital itself!
