Tram 28

If you only have time for one tour during your Lisbon stay, get a ticket for the 28 tram and marvel at the city’s beauty and charm and you ricket along. The delightful yellow cars connect Martim Moniz with Campo Ourique, and pass through the buzzing tourist districts of Graca, Alfama, Baixa and Estrela without you having to get off if you don’t want to. A classic journey through the narrow streets of Lisbon; take a film camera and a notebook, sit back, and relax.

The blue and white tiles, polished mahogany cabinets, stucco ceilings and hypnotising smell of essential oils makes for a gorgeous experience at this old-school soap shop – the number one destination for natural products, amazing gift wrapped for souvenirs just off the busy Rua das Flores.


Alfama is the place to see the city’s most traditional warblers perform. Try Dona Quiteria and you might even spot Madonna, a Lisbon resident. The real way to experience Fado is with a long dinner with wine and friends but you can also catch it with just a drink at the strange and intimate yet expansive Palivhao Chines bar, where you ring a doorbell to enter. At A Tasca Do Chico there is also a more laid back attitude to dinner-with-your-song, and at the Principe Real water reservation, you can enjoy a splash of saudade deep within the history cistern vaults.

Miradouro de Santa Catarina

Lisbon is a city best enjoyed in the open air and this is one of the finest viewpoints from which to do just that. Beer in hand at sundown, possibly with guitar-playing locals strumming nearby, you’re as near to urban nirvana as one can reasonably expect to get.
