20 Things to do in Lisbon, Portugal Travel Guide

October 13, 2019

Hey hey guys! Greetings from Lisbon, Portugal. This is a destination we’ve visited just a
couple of years ago. We did. And I have to say we’re thrilled to be back. We are with my parents this time. Yeah, so we are kicking off the annual Jeffery
family trip yep with Sam’s parents escape the Canadian winter. That’s right. So yeah, we’re spending a little over 2 months
in Europe. Lisbon is our first stop. So we’ve got 3 days here and we’re going to
take you guys on a little tour show you some of the attractions, eat, drink, be merry and
yeah. So let’s get started. Let’s go. After many repeat visits, we feel like we
know this city well, so in this Lisbon travel guide we’re going to show you around what
we think are some of the best attractions. Also, as we mentioned, we only had 3 days
in the city this time around, so this Lisbon itinerary will be perfect for any of you visiting
on a long weekend escape. We kicked off our first morning with a ride
on Lisbon’s most iconic tram line:#28 (Rede de eléctricos de Lisboa) bound for panoramic
vistas and a hilltop castle. Okay so we’ve reached our first lookout point
of the day. I have a feeling we’re going to be starting
at a lot of these. Um but yeah basically we hopped off of tram
28 and viola! We’ve got this terrace, rooftop views, the
ocean, sunshine. Here we are. What more could you want in January? I know. Especially coming from Canada. It does not feel like January right now. No, this is amazing. After those postcard perfect views looking
down over Alfama, it was time to continue up towards the castle, with a little detour
offering a bit of street art. So we found this tiny little lane. Lots of stairs and it is going to lead us
up to the Castle of Saint George (Castelo de São Jorge) and there is lots of graffiti
and street art so we’re going to have a proper look around before we continue on to the main
attraction. Alright, so we’ve been in Lisbon now for half
a day. Your first time here. And do you have any first impressions of the
city so far? Number 1 is it is 30 degrees celsius warmer
than in Canada right now. Oh yeah. Number 2 the streets and the sidewalks are
filled with cobblestones. Unbelievable. Unbelievable. We’ve had some great views as well. Yes. Yeah. I can’t remember what the lookout was but
we went to a lookout. Yeah. That is one of many in this city and also
did you enjoy your tram ride over here? Yes, the tram ride was a little crowded. Yeah. Haha. But a little sweaty too. Yeah. Haha. But uh we managed to get through it and we
got to our first stop. We’ve been walking ever since. Yeah, exactly. Enjoying it. It is great. St George Castle (Castelo de São Jorge) is
a Moorish castle that looks down over the historic centre and the Tagus River (Tajo
-Tejo). It’s one of the main tourist landmarks in
the city, and it’s position atop a hill means you also get some great views of Lisbon
from above. Okay so we made it into Castelo de São Jorge. Yeah, exactly. And before I talk about the experience first
I’ll inform you of the price. Yes. So it is 8.50 Euros per person. Mmmhmm. Which I think is good value. It is a really big castle. And that is kind of the first thing that is
surprising. When you see it from a distance you think
oh it is not that big but when you’re actually walking around it takes some time. This is not like a 15 minute one and done
kind of attraction. No. We’ve been here a while. Yeah, probably over an hour anyways. And yeah it is a really cool castle to explore. One thing to keep in mind though is when you’re
climbing up the stairs to go walk around the perimeter. The lookout points. Be really careful because some of the ledges
are very low. The railings are quite low. Yeah. Like below the knee. Yeah. It is almost a little nerve racking. They do warn you with some very graphic falling
signs but it is just really easy to kind of get comfortable up there and not notice where
you footing is. So yeah, be very aware and don’t stand too
close to the edge. That is my biggest safety tip for sure. My tip would be keep an eye out for the peacocks
because they roam the grounds freelily. Yes. So that is pretty cool. Yeah, they’re beautiful. After visiting the castle, we started making
our way downhill and stopped at Lisbon Cathedral (Santa Maria Maior de Lisboa – Sé de Lisboa),
which was right along the way. Admission to the cathedral is free of charge,
but once you’re inside, you can pay a fee to visit the treasury and the cloisters. No Lisbon travel guide, would be complete
without an escape to Belém on the west end, so that’s exactly where we went on our second
day. Belém is about a 30 minute bus ride, but
there are numerous attractions in this area, so it’s worth the trip. Because we arrived right around lunch time,
our first stop was food! So we found a restaurant right across from
the Jerónimos Monastery. Yeah, we sure have. And because we’re with my parents we ordered
a whole bunch of different things. We’ve got the grilled salmon over here. Yes. We’ve got Bacalhau which. Bacalhau. Which is trout. Cod. Cod! Sorry. Cow. Not cow cod. Not cow a cod of course. Fish. And we have the spicy chorizo yeah over here. And then we have a few different kinds of
potatoes. Yes. Um and yeah some greens. So it is just kind of making a mixed platter
and it has been really delicious. And everything has a little bit of olive oil. That is right. Drizzled all over it. So this is going to be good. Yeah, not too much seasoning just salt, olive
oil. Yeah. Really basic but it makes it taste really
good. Okay, let’s enjoy. Oh, that salmon is on point. After that delicious meal, we went for a walk
along the river. Here we came across the Monument to the Discoveries
(Padrão dos Descobrimentos), which stands in memory of the Age of Exploration that took
place during the 15th and 16th centuries, with many ships departed from these very shores. On either side of the monument, you can see
captains, navigators, kings and missionaries who all played a role. Just further down, we reached the Belém Tower
(Torre de Belém), which also played a role in the Age of Discoveries, since this tower
was commissioned as both a defence system at the mouth of the Tagus River and a ceremonial
gateway to Lisbon. And from there, we circled back to visit the
Jerónimos Monastery (Mosteiro dos Jerónimos). Construction of this monastery was ordered
by King Manuel, who selected the religious order of Hieronymite monks to occupy the monastery. The purpose? To pray for the King’s soul and provide spiritual
guidance to sailors departing on journeys of discovery around the world. So it is now time for egg tarts. Yes. We’ve been sightseeing for a while. Portuguese. And we’ll find ourselves a little treat. Portuguese egg tarts and they’re not just
any kind of egg tart. These Pastéis De Nata (Pastel de Belém)
are the original. Pastéis de nata (Pastel de Belém). Here we come. Pastéis de nata were created by the monks
at the Jerónimos Monastery, and seeing as we were right next door, this was a very logical
stop. But why did monks become master bakers? Well, it turns out, that at the time, convents
and monasteries would use large quantities of egg-whites to starch their clothes. This meant there was lots of leftover egg
yolks, and baking was a way that these wouldn’t go to waste. Obrigado. Obrigado. Here I go. Cheers. Cheers. To the tart. Cheers for Portuguese egg tarts. Mmmm. From there, it was over to the Botanical Gardens
(Jardim Botânico), to walk off those egg tarts, and also have an impromptu photo shoot
with Sam’s dad. Alright Dadeo on the Patio what are you going
to do? I’m going to take a unique picture. I’m going to lie down on this park bench. Yes. And I’m going to point camera up towards the
trees. Yes. You guys are going to stand behind here and
lean over and I’ll get you both. Perfect. Looking and the treetops will be. Is this your original idea? No no. No, definitely it is. Hahaha. We didn’t ask for it. Okay. Okay yeah it is my it is my idea. Yeah. Definitely. Ah, the thing with photography is you have
to think about your backdrop and you have to think about where you are shooting from
so there you go. Exactly. Okay, let’s show us how it is done. Okay. Here we go. Here we go. I’ll get down here. Yeah. The camera is on. Yeah. There we go. Okay now you guys have to lean over a little
bit. Like just like this? Yeah. I’ll get the camera out of the way. Tell me when you’re ready? Okay. Ready. All good? Oh it just went off. How do you turn it on? Ooops! Okay. Okay I’m going to take a picture like this. Get the camera out of the way okay. Just for a second. Ready? Okay, now come a little closer now. Hahaha. Right like that. Okay. Hahaha. Ready? One, two, three. And one more. Just lean over just a little bit more okay. Just one more. Lean over. Lean over. Yeah, okay ready? Mmmm okay that is it George. Gotcha. Awesome. So it is our third day in Lisbon (Lisboa)
and we are out and about again. So our first day was spent in the west. No in the east end of the city. Yeah, we were. The second day in the west end. Right and now we’re covering the central part
of Lisbon (Lisboa). Yes. So yeah this is actually our final day here. So we are looking to do quite a bit. Okay so first stop of the day. Yeah. We’re at the Mirador of Santa Catarina (Miradouro
de Santa Catarina) and this is just one of many lookout points. And it is really exciting for us to come to
this particular one because the last time we were in Lisbon we did go to several of
these yes but we never came to this one. No. So this is a unique vantage point for us. And keep in mind there is a lot of these throughout
the city so wherever you’re kind of walking around you should be checking on Google Maps
or also if you have a map in your guidebook see if there is a lookout point nearby because
likely there is one. Okay time for an update. Update. Well, the first thing is I got a new jacket. Someone went shopping. I quite like it. I quite like it. It replaced the Puma jacket that I was wearing
too much on the last Europe trip. Anyways we came to the Carmo Convent (Convento
da Ordem do Carmo) with the intention of going in but uh much like Samuel and Audrey style
we didn’t research if it was open today. Yes. We forgot it was Sunday. It is not open on a Sunday. Closed on Sunday. It is our last day here but the cool surprise
is that we found like what looks to be a cool open flea market kind of thing. Yeah. Open Sunday Market. So instead of showing you the convent, which
is good, we did come here the last time we’re going to show you the flea market instead. But do go to the convent if you have time
when you’re visiting Lisbon. Not on a Sunday. Not on a Sunday. After browsing the handicrafts at the Sunday Market, we walked
over to the Santa Justa Elevator, which is the only street lift in Lisbon for public
service. If you think this cast iron structure looks
familiar, that may be because it was designed by an apprentice of Gustave Eiffel. So I just finished visiting Santa Justa (Elevador
de Santa Justa) which is probably most famous for being an elevator but actually what I
decided to do instead of using the elevator is go out to the lookout point. Yeah. And I’m really glad I did that. It cost only a 1.50 and by far it is the best
view of the city. Like you can just basically see everything
including the castle, including like the downtown area far off in the distance. The ships. It is just it was an incredible view. I’m so glad I did it. Next, it was time for our afternoon snack,
so we made our way over to Confeitaria Nacional, which is the oldest pastry shop in Lisbon. They have a cafeteria-style eating area upstairs,
where you can choose sweet and savoury bites, and well, we couldn’t resist ordering a
few more egg tarts. Mmmmm. It is really flaky and crispy and then you
have that like pudding like eggy consistency but I think compared to the 1st place this
one tastes a little bit sweeter to me. Really? Yeah. Yeah, that is how I would describe how they
differ so far. In we go. I’m starting off with a big one as well. Mmmm. Is it good? Mmmhmm. But this one is not fresh out of the oven
like the one we had yesterday. Yes. Oh, right yes. It is not warm. Mmmhmmm. It is not warm. This one is served cold. Yeah. It is still good. Super flaky. Do you have a preference to warm or cold? I like them warm. Yeah. And then, it was time for a little shopping… Okay so we were just walking down Rua Augusta
which is the main pedestrian street here in Lisbon (Lisboa). And tell us what did we find? Well just behind me I found the same t-shirt
shop that I visited in Barcelona like 3 years ago. Yeah. I got some of my favorite t-shirts. Yeah, and I was talking to the shop owner
in there. Yes. And they actually originated from here. Yeah. They have 2 more stores in Porto and then
they have a couple more in Spain but this is actually a Portuguese company. I had no idea. I thought it was a company based out of Barcelona. And they’re great. I got two t-shirts and one for my Dad too. They have some really unique shirts with like
fun designs. Yeah, exactly. It is worth checking out. Okay time for a quick fashion show outside
of the store. This one is Chequito after Che Guevara instead
of Chiquita banana. The second one home slow home yeah with a
turtle robot. And this is for Pumpy. My Dad. This is for Sam’s Dad. He loves the Rolling Stones so this is for
him. This is called The Trolling Stongues Orchestra. There we go. Hahaha. So yeah, really fun shirts in there. (Portuguese choir singing) After enjoying that music and dance performance,
we continued down the pedestrian street, crossed the Rua Augusta Arch, and walked around the
Commerce Square before heading back to our apartment for a little rest. Well our time in Lisbon is winding down and
we’re all going to give you a different travel tip. The three of us. So what is yours Dad? Mine is to get out of the place you’re staying
in Lisbon. Walk around, walk on the cobblestones and
meet all the friendly people of Lisbon (Lisboa). Okay, so my tip is to sample all the Pasteis
De Nata at a few different bakeries because they really vary from shop to shop. So my biggest tip to involves food and drink
so you gotta try the local Portuguese wine. There is really good reds there is Porto. Later that afternoon, we would head out again,
in search of, you guessed it, more pasteis de nata! And boy, was it worth it! Okay guys it is time for our third pastry
shop. It is just over my shoulder right here. This place used to be a butter shop now they
sell pasteis de nata and it is kind of like a bar style where you just stand around and
eat your pastry have a coffee. So we’re going to go in. Let’s get some of it. Come. Okay third shop. This one is called Manteigaria and we went
in with the intention of only getting two tarts. Haha. We’ve walked out with a pack that holds six. Yeah. n we go. This is definitely not my first egg tart of
the day or my second. Haha. Yeah. If you get a beer belly or pizza bellies or
other kind of bellies in different parts of the world we’re definitely getting a pastel
de nata Portuguese egg tart belly oh my gosh here in Lisbon. Is that good? This may be the best one so far. You think so? This is warm. Yep. Fresh out of the oven. Ticks off that box. Oh my gosh it is so like pudding like and
creamy. It is really sweet. You know what else? We’re actually quite hungry now. Like it is almost supper time so. Mmm. That might be another factor in play. I’m calling it. This is the best. Alright guys so that is it for our 3 days
in Lisbon (Lisboa). Yeah. We hope you enjoyed this video. Yep. And we’ll see you soon. We’ll see you soon we’ve got a lot more videos
coming from Portugal. Ciao. As always, we hope you enjoyed our Lisbon
travel guide and that you found it useful for planning your own trip. If you have any other suggestions of things

    Hm.. speaking of viewpoints, there's 2 rather new ones (both paid) that are worth a look. The Rua Augusta arch has one now where you can actually go up to the arch. It gives a nice view of the street (especially if a tram is passing by) and the area around but it's more of a "localized" view. The other is at the Amoreiras Shopping Center rooftop. This one… imagine if you had the castle view but on a more central location, worth it if you ask me.
    Have you considered visiting the neighboring town of Sintra? There's a couple of castles there as well 😛 plus being a nice looking town.

    I really like these guides. But how can you not mention TILE. It's everywhere and it separates Portugal from other countries. And it's so beautiful. It influences the design of the streets. I saw the most amazing tile work on the side of apartment buildings and in the bathrooms of the tiniest cafes. Great videos but tile is so integral to Lisbon and Porto. Had to mention it.

    A tuna is a group of university students in traditional university dress who play traditional instruments and sing serenades. The tradition originated in Portugal and Spain in the 13th century as a means of students to earn money or food. Nowadays students don't belong to a "tuna" for money nor food, but seeking to keep a tradition alive, for fun, to travel a lot and to meet new people from other universities. (wikipedia )

    Hi there, we've been enjoying watching this. We film 4k walks in cities,
    and have just filmed Lisbon, so it's lovely to see someone doing
    something similar but from a different viewpoint, thank you for taking
    the time to add your video. If you'd like to subscribe to each other,
    we'd be happy with that too? Look forward to seeing more from you.

    Didn't you go to Sintra ?! That is also a awesome place and the ride from Lisbon to Sintra is awesome via a coastal road . Also cascas on the way is a good place.

    Regarding the Pasteis de Nada…aren't the ones that you tried Pasteis de Belem (as i noticed when you were filming from outside the pastry)? Those are different from the regular ones, from what i've heard because they are made from 100+ year old secret recipe.

    Hello there;
    Just for your own reference consider a trip to Madeira or the Azores, as a possible future travel destination, and be blown away by the beauty of theses 2 islands.

    Lisbon is the first place in the world that I've visited that I felt sad to leave. A little gem of a city by the sea. Highly recommend going there. Keep up the great videos guys!

    You guys are great! Thanks for making such fun and informative videos! My husband and I are fortunate to get to travel due to his job and passion for travel (and now my growing passion for travel as well), so your videos are so helpful as we get to travel and visit some of the same destinations! Blessings to you and am excited to keep following along with all your travels ☺️🗺🌍❤️

    Will the egg pastries last to get them back to the US? We are going in a few months and were wondering if we would be able to bring some home for the family to try!

    OMG the tuna (the college "band")! I use to do street performances with mine, just like that. So many tourists would come and watch. The money raised goes to help us pay for trips to competitions.

    I love love you guys but a Che T-shirt was so so sad I’m Cuban so maybe that’s why

    You two are great. I'll be there soon.

  • Reply Justin McCarthy May 29, 2019 at 8:45 pm

    I love your videos and it's nice to see you in one of my favourite cities. Some additional places which are more off the beaten track (and only if you have more days): the monument of Christ the King, the Aqueduct, the Water Museum and LX Factory. You visited "my neighbourhood" in Lisbon and at pasteis de nata from one of my favourite shops! Yay!

    Hey guys, cool videos. Small side note: Che Guevara was a Murderer. Though he committed horrible atrocities across Latin America, his death squads in Cuba were particularly efficient. I understand that’s “cool” to have a shirt from a “rebel”… but to many of us who lost people to this murderer it’s not cool or hip. Just imagine somebody excited to get a Hitler shirt.

    Your approach to travel vlogging is genuine and shtickless.. I also like your choice of music. I’ve watched many vids on Lisbon and they all rocked the same song. I think. Or really close. Ps I love your dad! Thank you for all the info!

    Really nice! Handsomely shot and unpretentious. Saw the Porto one, also very good! We're leaving in exactly a month for Portugal, first time. Porto and Lisbon–2 weeks. We'll have a car for the first week, Lisbon is the second–with a night's stopover in Elvora. As we are 82 and 72, we're kind of worried about steps–a little hard for us now. How did your parents manage? If you come to Israel, which is still amazing after 50 years, say ''hi''! We can guide you to some of our special places.

    Loved the video…wondering–no Fado? I discovered it about 1/2 year ago, and can't get enough. One of the reasons to go to Portugal!
