What is your best overall travel tip for Lisbon?

Wake up in time for sunrise and wander the beautiful streets of Lisbon at first light. The city is still quiet and the light makes the city feel even more dreamy. My two favourite spots for sunrise photos - Praça do Comércio and right outside of the MAAT.

Nicole's Travel Tips for Lisbon

What is your best overall travel tip for Lisbon?

Of course to bring comfortable shoes with good grip as the streets get very slippery when it rains, and that it is worth the trip to get a Pasteis de Belem. I had the best meal of my life at Oficina Do Duque. Be sure to try the vodka basil cocktail and oxtail entree!

Jasmine's Travel Tips for Lisbon

What is your best overall travel tip for Lisbon?

Walking shoes! Make sure you have comfortable footwear because you can only truly explore the localities by walking around. More specifically for the shoot, ladies, block heels will help you tremendously with the (very uneven) cobble stones.

Maxx's Travel Tips for Lisbon

What is your best overall travel tip for Lisbon?

My top travel tip for Lisbon is to leave your fancy shoes at home and only bring comfortable walking shoes with tread on the bottom. The cobblestones are very slippery when wet! Even in my Converse, I was slipping all over the place.

Really enjoyed the small local restaurants in Alfama (search for menus written in handwriting, and you’re probably in for a good meal).

Tanya's Travel Tips for Lisbon

What is your best overall travel tip for Lisbon?

Everything in Lisbon is very picturesque, from the narrow streets of Alfama district and take in sweeping views from a hilltop castle, then to the scenic coast of Belem. Breathtaking. I would recommend people to visit Lisbon and spend 3 days in the city.

If you're walking around the Alfama area of Lisbon, make sure to wear good shoes! It's very hilly, but the hikes are worth the views!

Gabi's Travel Tips for Lisbon

What is your best overall travel tip for Lisbon?

Bring your walking shoes! Lisbon is a very hilly city so leave the heels at home. I'm not kidding. Also, I'm cheating here because this makes 2 tips, but be sure to find some Fado music while you're there.

Eat all the pasteis de nata!!! Better yet, sign up for a baking class where they teach you how to make these delicious treats.

Get a general view of the city with a good tug tug experience, especially if you do not have so much time. Choose wisely though, since they are many out there who are not professional at all.

alessandra's Travel Tips for Lisbon

What is your best overall travel tip for Lisbon?

My top travel tip is to make sure you wear comfy shoes when walking. Lisbon is super hilly and the hills can get steep. If you plan on walking everywhere, bring sneakers or good walking sandals. If you get tired though, there are always the elevators and the trams that can take you everywhere. Also taxis and Uber are common!

Plan around your meals! There is so much good food to eat that you'll want to plan around it because you can find an amazing meal or snack in any part of the city. It was the perfect way to explore and experience while getting to see and do and eat everything.

Trisha's Travel Tips for Lisbon

What is your best overall travel tip for Lisbon?

Make sure you go to several miradouros (look-out points) around the city - so beautiful! Our favorite meal was at Royale Cafe near the Rossio area - not super fancy or expensive, just friendly service and delicious food (make sure you get the chocolate cake!).
