We had a wonderful visit to Lisbon.
Weather was great, so much to see and do, in and around Lisbon.
Visited all the museums, and our favourite was the Banksy Exhibition. Also our trip out to Sintra by train.
Recommend it to all, we did...More
This small museum is off the pink Belem palace, which is Portugal's presidential residence, and within walking distance of all the major Belem attractions such as Jeronimos monastery. Entrance is very cheap. There's a portrait gallery with short bios of all of Portugal's presidents since...More
This museum is the ONLY way you can get a tour of the working presidential palace (palacio de belem). The museum itself is small and features various gifts to the presidents and portraits. It's very well done and interactive. But the main reason to visit...More
If you can book a visit to the Palace itself, not only the museum and you'll enjoy it much more. They are usually just at Saturdays. The museum itself is really tasteful and if you want you can learn a lot.
It was my first time to this well presented and interesting museum. It was (predictably for Feb?) quiet which meant I had time to wander and ponder and take in the succinctly presented history of the republic. It was good to put faces to names...More

I am interested in Portuguese history and enjoyed visiting, but note that all the exhibits are labelled only in Portuguese. There are portraits of former Presidents, both from the pre-1974 dictatorship and the post-1974 democratic era, as well as gifts from state visits and a...More
Belém is the "capital of the Portuguese Discoveries" and a photographer's paradise. You can spend an entire day exploring this neighborhood: monuments (Jerónimos Monastery, Belém Tower, Monument to the Discoveries), museums (Coach Museum, Centro Cultural de Belém) and breathtaking views of the Tagus river will make your visit worth your time. Belém also offers a variety of restaurants and cafes, namely the famous - and
delicious - "Pastéis de Belém" (typical Portuguese custard tarts; make sure you buy an extra box of those!). Easily accessible from Lisbon's historic center, Belém is a must-do, especially if you're spending more than one day visiting the Portuguese capital.
