Lisbon Money-Saving Tips

Ride tram 28

For the cheapest city tour (just €1.30), hop aboard the rattling tram 28 from Baixa through the twisting streets of Alfama and all the way up to the Castle of St. George.

Celebrate St. Anthony

For one giant street party, visit on June 12 when Lisbon decks itself out with lanterns, colorful lights, and a parade for St. Anthony, the city’s patron saint.

Save with the Lisboa Card

This tourist card, available at city tourist offices, provides unlimited public transit and free or discounted admission to city museums and attractions.

The language

Most young people speak English and are best to approach if needing directions. That said, it doesn’t hurt to pack a Portuguese phrasebook.
