What to Do in Lisbon

From my 4 nights in Lisbon, it is fair to say, I wasn’t disappointed. 

Lisbon is the capital of Portugal and is the only one that is located on the Atlantic Coast. 

It is praised for its nightlife. I was worried that going in November there may not have been much of a nightlife but that wasn’t an issue. I went to Barrio Alto where there were bar, after bar, after bar. The nightlife started around 11pm and the streets were full of people outside drinking. It did help that the weather was still relatively mild!

On top of the nightlife, Lisbon is a city full of culture. Not just in terms off food- most notably their pastésis de nata.

I saw sights such as Belém Tower. The tower is an embarkation and disembarkation for those that explore Portugal. 

There is also Praça do Comércio. This is the main square and it faces a harbour. It has architecture that dates back from the 18th century which was rebuilt after the earthquake in 1755.

You cannot forget the tram 28 that takes you from Martim Moniz and ends at Campo Ourique. You get to see a variety of fame sights along the way. 

If you are up for a bit of travelling it is also worth visiting Docas. I had fresh fish sitting by the docks. 

There is so much to do in Lisbon, but these are some of my top sights.
