Do you need inspiration where to go in Lisbon? Find here our top 10 places to go in Lisbon:
1. Torre de Belém
If there's only one landmark you're hitting on a tour of the Portuguese capital, make it this one. High above the seafront of the quays of Lisbon, this large tower displays a true fusion of architectural styles from Mudejar to Moorish, Gothic to Romanesque. The tour bus has to admit since its establishment under the patronage of Saint John back in the 16th century, it has stood guard over the mouth of the Tagus River.
2. São Jorge Castle
The Lisbon castle, which crowns a hill above the historic centre, takes you back to the Middle Ages. It dates back to the 11th century when the city was under Moorish rule while, as the archeological site shows, a settlement has been here since the 7th century BC. Head up here for far-reaching views from the pine-shaded ramparts (it's a perfect place to play 'the landmark'), a look through the mysterious camera and a picture of the museum's past. Our bus company recommends book advance tickets to skip the queues.
3. Tram 28
Like San Francisco in the United States, Lisbon is a city known for its rattling, historic tram lines. Our chartered bus service has to admit no one is more legendary than Tram 28, which for decades has been making its way up the steep, paved roads into the old district of Alfama. The road starts below the palm-spotted hills of Graça and weaves through Escolas Gerais's hair-pin alleys, before pulling up to a halt underneath the majestic dome of the basilica of Estrela. The people-watching opportunities from the windows are second to none and you're expected to discover decades of history as you move along the route through the numerous magnificent palaces and castles.
4. Alfama District
The compact little district of Alfama is Lisbon's answer to the old town centers of the other ancient capitals of Europe. Like the Rome Forum, it is hailed as the oldest part of the city, but this one dates back to the Moors of Africa rather than the Latium kings. The tour bus suggests to feel one of the top activities for visitors to Portugal's capital is to dive into the warren of winding streets and alleys that forms the city.
A chartered bus has to admit that Sintra is on of the must see place in Lisbon. Despite being a completely different town and located more than half an hour away by car from Lisbon, the glorious town of Sintra remains one of the main attractions here. Our chartered bus recommends hire a coach with driver in Coach Charter Europe’s bus company and enjoy day trip to this UNESCO World Hertage Site.
6. St George’s Castle
Unquestionably St George's Castle is the most prominent landmark in the historic center of Lisbon. The great citadel, standing tall and strong above the streets of the old district of Alfama, was first built by the Romans over 2,000 years ago. It has since been established by subsequent city rulers, from the Berbers to the Knights of Reconquista. The tour bus admits Today, along with an encircling dry moat and other anti-siege features, it has mighty palisades and crenulated towers to admire!
7. Monastery of Jerónimos
Just a look at the ornate spires and grand carvings of the great Jerónimos Monastery will suffice to deduce the raison d'être for this huge landmark nestled along the banks of the River Tagus. It was designed to mark the most glorious age of Portugal that was called the 'Exploration Period.' The fusion of architectural styles, known as the Manueline style, is a testimony to the cultures encountered by the explorers of Lisbon, while the money used to create the structure came from the foreign trade in cloves, cumin and exotic spices in Portugal. Bus company inform it is also another of the city’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
8. Lisbon Oceanarium
The massive Lisbon Oceanarium, situated in the blue waters of the Tagus Estuary, rises like a hulking aircraft carrier. Within, the building houses numerous marine life-related exhibits that together draw more than one million visitors per year. You can get up close to colorful puffer fish and see the marauding sharks. You'll see fascinating moray eels and meet cuddly penguins.
9. Museu do Oriente
The bus rental has to admit you only need to set foot in places like Sri Lanka and Goa to know how far the reach of the great Renaissance Empire reached from Portugal. Such far-flung eastern corners of the country are the focus of Museu do Oriente in Lisbon and the room itself is enormous. It is located in a vast former fish processing plant that now boasts state-of-the-art showrooms. The emphasis here is on all Asian stuff, with tales of chinese rituals and seafaring all part of the tour across the South China Sea.

First of all there is the downstairs section, which throws succulent legumes and Mediterranean fruits every morning of the week with local fruit and vegetable vendors, so make sure you get there early if you want the best offers. Then there's the section upstairs that comes filled with more new, often eccentric food stalls and cutting-edge restaurants.
