The Portuguese capital is flooded with monuments of interest. You should first walk around the various districts to get a feeling for the town and its fascinating neighbourhoods. Then, visit St George's Castle, or Se Cathedral. Another attraction is Belem tower, the symbol of Lisbon. You should also discover the Jeronimos monastery, a jewel of the Manueline style, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Meanwhile, museum-goers will have a lot to marvel at in the Calouste-Gulbenkian Museum. As for the children, they can admire the penguins, rays, sharks and tuna at the oceanarium.
Enjoy a stroll through the districts of Rossio, Chiado and Bairro Alto. Listen to some fado in the casa do fado located in the Alfama district. In the evening, enjoy a glass of Ginja (a cherry-based spirit) in the Ginjinhas, which are little bars, typical of Lisbon, that have become a true institution where all social classes mingle and meet for a drink and a chat. People drink their glass of Ginja out on the pavement in the most convivial of atmospheres. Climb aboard the legendary yellow trams that cover the city (including the famous tram #28), and cable cars (of Santa Justa, Bica or Gloria). Visit one of Lisbon's many panoramic viewpoints which overlook the city (the Miradors of Santa Catarina, Santa Luzia or Senhora do Monte). You can also discover Lisbon from the Tagus, by taking part in a cruise. In the evening, you can go out to the docks, which have recently been renovated and now strewn with trendy restaurants, bars and nightclubs to which the young locals flock in numbers. Visit the flea market and the Feira de Ladra (the 'thief's market') at Campo de Santa Clara.
