Food tips

In the center of Alfama! The Fado history! Around you will find many places to listen to Fado. Usually they are small restaurants or taverns and a table should be booked in advance. Some suggestions: Mesa de Frades, Clube de Fado

The world’s first food and cultural market, and the first market experience rooted wholly in editorial curation. A place that previously housed the city’s top vendors now brings together the best of the city under one roof: its best restaurants, bars and cultural experiences. An emblematic space of Lisbon renewed by TIME OUT magazine, offering food and traditional local products and the foods range from seafood to steak sandwiches, hamburgers, sushi and ice cream… with canteen-style communal tables. If on the ground floor it is too crowded, try the upper floor famous restaurant Pap'Açorda (with a lunch menu more affordable) .

So many nice family run restaurants in Alfama: Maça Verde A Muralha Lautasco Alfama Cellar O Cartaxeiro Arcaz Velho A Bela Try the sardines, the grilled fish, the codfish, the octopus, the black pork meat or the daily dishes suggested! With our good red or white wine or sangria! And for dessert the "Arroz Doce" or the "Farófias" (and make sure to eat the grilled fish with boiled potatoes and salad, never with fries!)

Places to walk

Narrow alleyways and small squares where you can eat deliciously fresh sardines, boiled potatoes and grilled peppers together with much sangria (or wine). Alfama is also representative of Lisbon Fado. It can be heard and experienced (because it is an unforgettable experience) in numerous restaurants and taverns, but only at night. Alfama people are also celebrated for being friendly. You'll get lost in Alfama's maze , but that's the charm of it! so don't worry and just enjoy it! And you are never really "lost": the Castle is on the top, the river is all the way down and in the middle of the hill passes the famous tram 28! In between many wonderful viewpoints: Largo Portas do Sol or Igreja Santo Estevão for example

Informações sobre a cidade

If you have the time you should include Sintra in your itinerary, is really a must! And Cascais too can be nice. You can do both in a day: going with train to Sintra, station Rossio (early as there is a lot to see there), using the bus in Sintra to take you to the palace uphill and wherever you wsh to go more (the tickets to visit is worth booking first to avoid queues: https://bilheteira.parquesdesintra.pt/categoria/45/parques-e-monumentos# ) In the afternoon you can take a bus that takes you to Cascais (passing in the most western point of Europe, Cabo da Roca ) These buses run every half an hour, so maybe stop here the appreciate the cliffs and wild atlantic and then catch the next bus to Cascais. In Cascais very nice to have dinner, and then coming back by train (runs until 1 am) to Cais do Sodré station in Lisbon. There is a ticket "Train and Bus" that include all this transport and costs 16€ and you charge in the same card at the train station when leaving to Sintra. Important: - take an extra coat as usually the weather in Sintra (microclimate) is cooler then in Lsibon - don't miss the famous pastries there: "Travesseiros" eat them hot, they are amazing! or Queijadas - these you can bring home and eat it later

Taxis from airport not expensive

Taxi from airport: To come from the airport the easiest is to take a taxi. As the airport is inside the city, it just takes 15/20 minutes and costs maximum 15 euros(already including luggage charge of 1,60€ for the total nr of bags) . Bigger taxis are more expensive. IMPORTANT: To avoid being overcharged at the airport, pick up taxi not at Arrivals but at Departures. (After passing through customs turn right. Walk a bit and take the elevator up (DEPARTURES). At the main door of the airport, there are usually taxis.

Metro goes up to the airport (but change line)

Metro is very handy in Lisbon. In the airport there is the red line. To come by metro to downtown needs to change line in São Sebastião station, for the blue line, direction Santa Apolonia. For Alfama: exit Santa Apolonia For Chiado : exit Baixa/Chiado and then Chiado For downtown: exit Rossio, Baixa or Terreiro do Paço

Suggestion for last day (near airport)

On last day you can leave to visit the Parque das Nações/oriente area a modern neighborhood with some striking examples of contemporary architecture with the famous Oceanarium, the cable cars by the river that offer fantastic view, many restaurants, gardens, and the shopping center Vasco da Gama. This area is very close to the airport (only 3 metro stations or 5 minutes with a taxi) and you can leave luggage in the lockers in the metro station. Metro Red line - station Oriente.
