What To Do In Lisbon Portugal

As a couple, going to Europe together has always been one of our dreams. After we got married, we decided that this was the year we were going to make that step and try to find the best deal on flights + hotels. When we heard of TAP Air Portugal’s  stopover program which includes up to 5 nights in Lisbon or Porto, then flying on to almost any place in the world (over 150 destinations!) for no additional airfare, we immediately knew this was going to be the best way to make our dream trip happen – we were able to experience beautiful Lisbon on our way to Milan, all thanks to TAP!

TAP Air Portugal made our journey easy with direct flights from Miami to Lisbon. The flight was around 8 hours and 45 minutes, but the trip felt seamless with their inflight entertainment library which allowed us to catch up on our favorite shows. Not only were the seats comfortable, but the staff and food were excellent. The desserts on the flights were to die for! (Especially the guava cake!)

We honestly did not know what to expect when arriving to Lisbon – everyone always speaks about the traditional tourist spots in Europe but seems to overlook Portugal (we don’t know why!). We were surprised to find out most of our friends and family have never visited Portugal despite having been to the other major European cities. With 3 nights to discover Lisbon we jam-packed our schedule with the BEST spots to visit. We stayed at the Altis Belem which was honestly one of the best modern hotels we’ve stayed at in a while. Here are our recommendations of what to do when you take your trip to Lisbon, enjoy!

We began our journey by going to the Tower of Belem. This is where we started to fall in love with Lisbon. The tower was absolutely magical. Just walking next to the tower made you feel like you were in a movie. Walking distance from the Tower was the Padrão dos Descobrimentos, an absolutely stunning landmark. We were recommended by a local to try the traditional pastel de Belem which is very popular in Lisbon. Afterward, we decided to head over to the MAAT. This contemporary Art museum is a must. Its architecture and location are breathtaking. Having the mix of modern architecture next to the water made the trip unforgettable. Take a look at our VLOG of our first day in Lisbon below:

The next day, we decided to head over to the Bairro Alto and Alfama sector. Near these locations, we got to experience great tourist sites such as the Santa Justa Lift, Praça do Comércio, Miradouro das Portas do Sol and The Baixa District of Lisbon. These all have great tourist spots for shopping, dining and of course beautiful pictures. We definitely recommend grabbing one of the fun Tuk Tuk cars while visiting these locations (which you can do for free if you book a Portugal Stopover with TAP). We were able to see all this sector in a matter of hours with a great tour guide who told us about the history behind each spot.

Did we mention the food in Portugal is spectacular? Some typical dishes include Bacalhau, Amêijoas à Bulhão Pato and Sardinhas. Overall, if you love seafood, Lisbon is full of it, so make sure you try out as many different seafood combinations as possible. Take a look at our VLOG of our second day in Lisbon below:

For our last day in Lisbon, we decided to head over to Sintra. We both agree that this was the best part of our trip. The ride to Sintra was simply beautiful – as we were leaving the city, we were able to see the countryside of Lisbon. Upon arrival, we started our journey at the Pena National Palace. This was simply amazing glancing at all the colorful walls alongside breathtaking views. Just a 10 minute walk away, we visited the Castle of the Moors which is a hilltop medieval castle. The journey to get to the top was a unique experience on its own. Make sure you stay hydrated because the walking is real! Last but not least, Quinta da Regaleira is by far a must-see spot in Lisbon. We got to see beautiful sceneries and authentic tunnels which almost made us feel like we were in a movie set. Take a look at our VLOG of our third day in Lisbon below:

Overall, we want to give a huge thank you to our friends over at TAP Air Portugal for the round-trip airfare and hotel accommodations. Our hotel recommendations are Altis Belem and the Dom Pedro Hotel which by the way you can receive discounts on booking.com. We highly recommend their Portugal Stopover program to take on the best travel journey of the year!
