Things to do in Lisbon

Perched on the coast of Portugal and steeped in a rich and diverse marine history, it''s no wonder that many of Lisbon''s attractions are of the aquatic variety. Visitors will have a grand time exploring the many sights this exciting city has to offer. Visit the Lisbon Oceanarium, which is marketed as the second best aquarium in the world and boasting a 1.3-million gallon (5-million litre) and a wonderful array of marine life, or for a slightly more historical look at the sea, the Maritime Museum is one of Europe''s best and a must for history buffs. Visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Tower of Belem, stroll through the streets of the charming Alfama, Lisbon''s old qaurter, visit the Castelo de Sao Jorge and take a stroll through the Jeronimos Monastery, a World Heritage Site and the resting place of Vasco de Gama. Visitors wanting to see the sights in Lisbon should look into purchasing a Lisboa Card, which grants the bearer free admission or 50% on admission fees to most attractions as well as free access to public transport. The card costs EUR15, is valid for 24 hours and is available from tourist offices throughout the city.
