Lisbon was the final stop of our European tour and we couldn't have chosen a better destination. The city immediately won us over with it's cheery pastel buildings, delicious fresh seafood, and it's unique mix of attractions. It also didn't hurt that we had clear blue skies the whole week we were there! The following video will highlight 20 things to do in Lisbon and we hope it will give you a few ideas of some of the sights this beautiful city has to offer. *Our NEW Lisbon guide: https://youtu.be/STAOrE5bfxk GEAR WE USE Olympus OM-D E-M5 II: http://amzn.to/1OchS7t Canon G7X: http://amzn.to/1YdjsYX Olympus 14-150mm II Lens: http://amzn.to/1Y79zeM Rode Video Mic GO: http://amzn.to/1WDKtVM Joby Gorilla Pod: http://amzn.to/1PgoY5F SanDisk 16GB Extreme Pro: http://amzn.to/25KEErs SOCIAL MEDIA & TRAVEL BLOGS AUDREY: blog: http://thatbackpacker.com/ instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thatbackpacker/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thatbackpacker twitter: https://twitter.com/ThatBackpacker SAMUEL: blog: http://nomadicsamuel.com/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/nomadicsamuel twitter: https://twitter.com/NomadicSamuel instragram: https://www.instagram.com/nomadicsamuel/ 1) São Jorge Castle (Portuguese: Castelo de São Jorge) 2) Miradouro das Portas do Sol observation deck 3) Carmo Convent (Portuguese: Convento da Ordem do Carmo) 4) Portuguese egg tart pastry - Pastel de nata (Portuguese: pastéis de nata) 5) Belém Tower (Portuguese: Torre de Belém 6) Padrão dos Descobrimentos (Portuguese: Monument to the Discoveries) 7) Jerónimos Monastery or Hieronymites Monastery (Portuguese: Mosteiro dos Jerónimos 8) Kiosk - Quiosque 9) Tagus River Ferry - (Portuguese: Tejo) 10) Salmão Grelhado - Portuguese Grilled Fish (Salmon Steaks) 11) Visiting Cacilhas Island 12) Lisbon tramway network (Portuguese: Rede de eléctricos de Lisboa) 13) Miradouro de São Pedro de Alcântara Observation Views 14) Shopping (Rua Augusta) 15) Praça do Comércio - Commerce Square) 16) Santa Justa Lift (Portuguese: Elevador de Santa Justa 17) Bacalhau - Portuguese dried & salted cod 18) Tropical Botanical Garden (Portuguese: Jardim Agricola Tropical) 19) Lisbon Cathedral: Patriarchal Cathedral of St. Mary Major (Portuguese: Santa Maria Maior de Lisboa or Sé de Lisboa) 20) Lisbon night views Our visit Lisbon travel guide covers some of the top attractions including the best in arts, entertainment, museums, nightlife and restaurants.

You can get some nice panoramic views of the city from here, and they also have peacocks roaming the grounds. Miradouro das Portas do Sol is one of the many look out points in Lisbon that offers postcard-perfect views of the city. This particular terrace overlooks the Alfama district and it is always popular with tourists. Carmo is a mediaeval convent that was ruined during the 1755 earthquake, and today it is used as an archaeological museum. It's a strange feeling walking down the ruined nave of the church and seeing blue skies above your head, but that's exactly what makes it worth a visit. Another place to visit is Belem Tower. The tower was built on the banks of the Tagus River, and it was meant to act as both a defense system and a ceremonial gateway into Lisbon. The Jeronimos Monastery is one of the most visited sights in Lisbon. It's one of the best examples of Late Gothic Manueline architecture, so have a close look at the intricate detailing when you visit. A fun way to get around Lisbon's hilly streets is by riding the trams. There are different lines across the city, but #28 is the most popular one with visitors. The Santa Justa lift is an elevator that connects the lower streets of Baixa with Carmo Square, and it is the only remaining vertical elevator in Lisbon. Though it is meant to serve a functional role, it is also quite popular with visitors who find the elevator a novel idea. And that's a wrap for our week in the Portuguese capital! We hope you enjoyed this video and that it gave you some ideas of things to do in Lisbon.
