Lisbon Holidays

Your Lisbon holiday

In 1200 BCE, the Phoenicians began to use the area of Lisbon as a trading post. This would be the first of many civilizations to take advantage of Lisbon’s strategic economic and political location, situated along the Atlantic and at the mouth of the Tagus River. Under the Roman Empire Lisbon was known as Olissipo, and grew into a city based on shipping. The Moors took over Lisbon in 711 ACE, building mosques and establishing Arabic as an official language and Islam as the official religion.

With help from the English crusaders, the first king of Portugal ousted the Moors in 1147. Christianity was imposed upon Lisbon and Muslims were converted by force or expelled. The city was eventually established as the capital of Portugal and its first university created. Though the onset of the Bubonic Plague and massive civil unrest and rioting weakened Lisbon, it bounced back during the colonial Age of Discovery. Vasco de Gama’s successful voyage to India meant prosperity for Lisbon, and the city entered a century of great wealth in which the Torre de Belem and the Jeronimos Monastery were built.

A devastating earthquake in 1755 killed a majority of Lisbon’s population and economically destabilized the city for decades, as it required massive reconstruction. The 20th century was coloured by the rule of the totalitarian dictator of Antonio Salazar, who both modernized and plunged Portugal into debt with expensive colonial wars in Angola, Mozambique, and Guinea, in which many lives were lost. The peaceful Carnation Revolution restored democracy to Portugal in 1974. In recent decades Lisbon has seen a growth international investment and is now a thriving cultural and economic centre of Europe.

Spend holidays in Lisbon and immerse yourself in the old world charm of the Portuguese capital.

Nestled on hillside of Portugal’s Iberian coast, Lisbon manages to maintain an easy-going non-touristy vibe while offering all the historic sights and fantastic nightlife of Europe. With excellent museums, fine boutiques, and quaint outdoor restaurants and cafés, it is no wonder that Lisbon was named “Europe’s Leading City Break Destination” by the World Travel Awards.

Best time to take a holiday to Lisbon

  • With its mild southern Mediterranean climate, Lisbon is a year-round destination. Summer lasts from May through October, and in the midsummer months of July and August, average temperatures can reach 29°C. If your holiday plans include a dip in the Mediterranean, this might be ideal, but you should also be prepared for crowds. Breezes from the Mediterranean help cool things off in the evenings, making outdoor dining and night-time activities popular. Winter daytime temperatures average in the mid-teens, so many people from more northerly climates enjoy a sunny Lisbon getaway during the winter months. Spring and fall tend to be short but pleasant, and these shoulder seasons sometimes offer cheaper prices on lodging and flights to Lisbon.

Lisbon highlights

  • Two-wheeled tourism

    Discover Lisbon by bike for an unforgettable day of city and seaside sightseeing. The bike rental company Bikeiberia offers top quality bikes and an array of tours and routes tailored to all levels and interests. Ride along Lisbon’s waterfront and tour traditional neighbourhoods before exploring the wooded Monsanto Park. Some routes will take you to the charming towns of Sinta, Cascais, and Ericeira, while other mountain-biking trips last for days.

    Ride Tram 28

    Hop on this antique tram that will take you from the city centre on up to the Castle St. George. Get your fill of people-watching and Lisbon street life as the tram winds through narrow streets. When you reach the castle, get off and take in a gorgeous view of the city. To explore the maze of alleyways first-hand, consider walking back down to the city centre. Tram 28 can get crowded and pickpockets are common, so be sure to keep an eye out.

    Trip to Cascais

    Drive or catch a train at Cais do Sodré station to the enchanting beach village of Cascais. Traditionally a fishing community, eat seafood at one of the town’s many excellent restaurants, or enjoy a stroll along the sandy beaches and sea front promenade. Bikes in town are available free of charge, allowing visitors to continue on to the sandy Guincho and Estoril beaches. Water activities like surfing, windsurfing, boating, and sailing are also available.

    Shopper’s delight

    Lisbon is known for its boutiques full of local designer’s finest collections in addition to international name brands. Check out the shops of the Chiado area, where you can also find an array of great second-hand stores. The main shopping area is Baixa in downtown, located between the Tagus River and the Rossio. Filled with cafés and restaurants, the shopping districts in Lisbon are wonderful places to rest and have a bite.

    This massive and intricately detailed monastery mixes Moorish, Gothic, and Renaissance architectural styles, creating a stunning structure with endless halls to explore. Built in 1501 and occupied by the Hieronymite monks, the monastery was King Manuel I’s way of thanking the Virgin Mary for protecting Vasco de Gama on his journey to India. The riches acquired from African, Asian, and South American colonial ventures are what largely funded the monastery’s construction. UNESCO dubbed the monastery a World Heritage monument, exemplifying Portuguese art “at its best".

    Tower of Belém

    Also named a World Heritage monument, the Tower of Belém is a product of Portugal’s Age of Discoveries. Built in 1515 on Lisbon’s harbour and featuring Moorish, Gothic, and Manueline architectural styles, the tower served as the point of departure for many explorers of the era. Throughout the ages it has served as a customs control point, a lighthouse, and even a prison.
