3. Food and drink

Lisbon is renowned for its fresh seafood, top grade beef, delicious pastries, cakes and 365 ways to serve cod! (bacalhau). With a full range of eateries from taverns and cafes to Michelin starred restaurants, find time to sample the Portuguese custard tart, Pasteis de Belem, supposedly invented here 150 years ago by Jeronimos’ monks. The 16th century monastery is well worth exploring too!

Check out Mercado de Ribeira, transferred from a fresh produce market to a Food Hall in 2014 and now a gastronomic delight. You will find top chefs on the Northern back row.  Sample Ginja, a strong, sweet cherry liquor, originally from Lisbon...and don’t forget bica (espresso).

4. Beaches

To the West of Lisbon is Carcais-Estoril, while to the South is Costa de Caparica. These beautiful sandy beaches are easily accessible by a short bus or train ride. If you want to travel to the wild beaches of Sierra de Sintra or Serra da Arrabida, it would mean hiring a car. The latter is only 30km from Lisbon, but has some of the most picturesque and stunning scenery and beaches in the whole of Portugal, but is rarely visited by foreign tourists.
