Details of the stay: A weekend in Lisbon - 3 days

Day 1 : Museums and shopping

Depending on time and preferences, spend the morning visiting one or more museums - the wonderful museum of the Gulbenkian Foundation or the Oriente Foundation, the National Museum of Azulejo or the National Museum of Ancient Art - or crossing the Tagus by ferry to experience the city differently. Then in the afternoon, stroll through the Baixa (the heart of Lisbon), just to do a little more shopping on the way to Chiado. After discovering the district of Bica, aperitif at the Santa Catarina watchtower to enjoy the view and the sunset on the bridge of April 25. Then a typical meal in one of the many restaurants of the Bairro Alto, and a fado or electro evening not far from the many bars in the trendy district.

Day 2 : Old city - new city

In the morning, on foot or by tramway (No. 28), with a short break at the cathedral and belvedere of Santa Luzia, climb to São Jorge Castle - a magnificent view of the city and the Sea of Straw (Tagus) - then continue on foot to São Vincente da Fora to visit the cloister and find a small souvenir at the Feira da Ladra, Lisbon's flea market. Then get lost in Alfama and Graça, typical old districts that have remained popular. In the afternoon, take a stroll in the Parc des Nations - site of the 1998 Universal Exhibition - the cable car and the Oceanarium, very well designed (one of the most visited areas in the capital). Then, evening in the very lively, even worldly, Docas.

Day 3 : Belém and the banks of the Tagus

You will start early, thanks to tram No. 15E towards Belém, for a breakfast with the famous pastel of Belém at the Confeitaria nacional de Belém. Then you can go to the monastery of the Hieronymites with its "wafer" façade, built by Dom Manuel I in 1502, then push on to the emblematic tower of Belém and the monument of the Discoveries. Then you will have the choice between the National Museum of Carrosses or the CCB with the Berardo collection. On the way back, don't hesitate to stop at the LX factory (or Lisbon factory) for an aperitif.
