      Wondering what to do in Lisbon?

      Elegantly draped over seven undulating hills, straddling both the sea and the River Tagus, Lisbon is so beautifully entwined with its landscape that it seems to have grown naturally from the ground. In such a diverse cityscape, it’s no wonder amazing things to do in Lisbon are around every corner. Portugal’s capital has been carefully crafted over centuries, with the Stone Age, the Roman Empire, and the Middle Ages each adding their own chapters to its story. The city today is a place of ancient ruins, white-domed cathedrals, and lavishly Baroque churches, with a wave of contemporary additions only expanding the ever-growing list of things to do in Lisbon.

      Between romantic bistros in lantern-lit lanes, elegant cafés in tree-fringed plazas, and local hangouts filled with friends sharing small savory plates and pitchers of fruity sangria, the food scene certainly offers plenty of things to do in Lisbon. The city’s cuisine today is a combination of Roman, Asian, African, and South American influences and fresh, local ingredients courtesy of Lisbon’s rich landscape and the Atlantic Ocean.

      When the sun sets, the list of things to do in Lisbon gets even longer. The city is famous for its vibrant nightlife scene spilling out onto the cobbled streets – it’s not uncommon for locals to arrive at a bar after midnight, head to a club after 3, and stumble home when the sun is high in the sky. If you’re looking for things to do in Lisbon after dark, you’re spoiled for choice. From cozy wine bars to live music lounges to pulsing nightclubs, nights in Lisbon don’t only cater to rowdy revelers – but most are best begun admiring the city’s iconic skyline with a drink at a rooftop bar.

        Ann Elisa was amazing! She gave us exactly what we were looking for with information about different neighborhoods, how daily life is here in Portugal and also added in bits of history and interesting places to eat and shop seamlessly into our experience. We felt like it was a perfect way to get the information we needed to make decisions about moving to Lisbon and we loved it! We highly recommend it!

        We booked a 4 hour tour with Pedro. He led us through the City in a thoughtful, organized and visually spectacular route. Knowledgeable in the history, culture, and everyday life of the city, Pedro was an excellent guide. As a professional photographer and journalist, he offered a unique, fresh and delightful perspective of a city we were visiting for the first time, but will hope to revisit. Thank you Pedro!!!

        Genta speaks excellent English and conveyed to us many interesting historical facts during our walking tour to attractions around Baixa. She has a wonderful and enjoyable personality. On one of our rest stops we had the famous Pasel da Tata, hot out of the oven!. Genta also gave us suggestions for things to do on our own and a great restaurant recommendation too. Genta's tour far exceeded our expectations.
