- For a relaxing itinerary, explore the medieval cobblestone streets of Alfama- the oldest neighborhood in Lisbon with obvious Moorish influences. Visit small shops, fado clubs, or even the local Feira da Ladra market, and take in the sites of some fantastic old architecture. Head up to Castelo de Sao Jorge on foot or via funicular to see some well-preserved relics and the castle itself, plus catch some of the best views of the city. Also on the grounds are gardens and an archaeological museum.
- Head to Belem to see the monuments and museums about Lisbon’s roll in exploration of the New World, boasting famous explorers such as Vasco da Gama and Ferdinand Magellan. Check out the UNESCO world heritage sites of Mosteiro dos Jerónimos with its unique architectural style and then the old 16th century fort of Torre de Belem. Don’t forget to stop by the Padrao dos Descobrimentos (Monument to the Discoveries) built to commemorate Henry the Navigator and take in great views of the waterfront just a short jaunt away.
- Head to the Parque das Nacoes (Park of Nations) for family fun for all ages. Kids will enjoy an educational experience at the Oceanarium where they can learn about the fish and their habitats, or perhaps get hands on at the Pavilhão do Conhecimento (Science Pavilion). Adults will enjoy a leisurely walk through the gardens or the urban art exhibit. Afterwards climb into a cable car with everyone for panoramic views at 4000 feet up of the park, Tagus River, and the Vasco da Gama Tower.
- To get a more hands on approach to naval history in Lisbon, head over to see the old frigate Fernando II e Gloria. It is one of the last warships to be built in the royal ship yard and has been restored to what it looked like in 1843. Turned into a floating museum, exhibits are set up on several decks to depict what a life at sea might have been like. Kids can wander freely on each level and observe mannequins posed as if in the middle of carrying out their daily tasks.
