#1 of 467 things to do in Lisbon according to Trip Advisor
My husband and I walked on many streets of this area and appreciated the view and history. We saw oldest church and houses in Lisbon, observed the way of life and people, and took a lot of great photos. This is a must-see part of Lisbon. Highly recommended.

That’s a great place to visit in Lisbon. You don’t need to stay in the loooong queue to buy your ticket. You can (and should) buy it on their website, but if you didn’t manage to do that until the time you find yourself leading to the queue… guess what? There is free wi-fi there and you still can buy online. There is a vending machine but it was not working. There is still something else: if you can’t stand screaming, crying children consider another place to go, they are everywhere and baby trolleys too. If it’s not a problem for you, enjoy it. Tickets for adults cost $18. It worth every penny.

We had not done our research so didn't know how important a place it was and also that the day we want was a National Holiday. At 10.30 there was a long queue of about 250 people.The queue moved incredibly slowly and there appeared to be lots of people jumping it. When we finally got to the Box Office after 1hr 40mins we found only one person selling tickets. At that point a second counter opened!! We also bought tickets for the nearby Torre de Belem. We know now that you should always pre purchase tickets. The monastery is a little bit like Westminster Abbey with the tombs of Vasco da Gama and many Kings etc. The stone work is beautiful. Worth the visit just a shame about the unsatisfactory arrangements for admission.
Praca do Comercio (Terreiro do Paco)
#4 of 467 things to do in Lisbon
Sitting opposite the river. The large square that saw the revolution in 1974 and has since been a huge car park (shockingly) but now restored to its commanding self. Surrounded by bars, restaurants and a museum that covers its history.

Unbeatable as the area for bar hopping at night. Thin cobbled streets, old rustic buildings. Cavernous bars all decorated very uniquely. Crowds spilling out into the street. Amenable atmosphere throughout.
Castelo de S. Jorge
#6 of 467 things to do in Lisbon
A visit to the Castle provides superb views of the city. The Castle itself has sections from various periods in Portuguese history, including the ruins of the former royal palace. There are exhibitions, shop and cafe, archaeological site, etc – and plenty of steps to climb so it helps if you are reasonably fit! Certainly one of the must-see places in Lisbon.
Torre de Belem
#7 of 467 things to do in Lisbon
I knew it wasn't large but was still surprised how small it was when standing there. The setting doesn't really do it any favours. Something to tick off if already in Belem.
Miradouro da Senhora do Monte
#22 of 467 things to do in Lisbon
This is one of the highest points in Lisbon and as such gives excellent views o the Alfama and the surrounding areas. As one of the walking guides mentioned you really don't need to pay to get good views of the old town area in Lisbon.

If you want to ride them, take a trip out to the western end of the line and you will stand a better chance of getting a seat (pun intended) for the trip back in to the touristic end of town.
Estadio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica
#24 of 467 things to do in Lisbon
We visited the stadium and enjoyed the tour accompanied by a knowledgeable guide. We weren't initially tempted by the museum, but we had half an hour to spare so thought we'd try it and we were glad we did – the trip in the lift is worth the entrance fee alone, as it's more of a huge platform that slowly transports you up and down through the atmospheric surround sound / TV environment.
