2 day Lisbon itinerary with the family

Day 1
City centre

The most colourful and interesting part of the two-day Lisbon tour is between Bairro Alto and Bairro de Alfama. Despite the slopes, you will find many attractions for children: the Castle of São Jorge and also the tram routes are included in the route.

Alfama neighbourhood
The route begins in the Alfama neighborhood, specifically at the Castle of Saint George. The Alfama neighbourhood is one of the oldest areas of the city because it was practically spared from the 1755 earthquake. It is full of small traditional shops, steep and winding streets, old buildings. In short, it has a very particular charm that will attract the attention of all members of the family.

Castle of Saint George
The best way to get to the castle by public transport is line 737 that leaves from Figueira Square. Once inside the castle, and without losing sight of the peacocks you will find, be sure to visit the dark room to see real-time images of the entire city captured through this device. It is a visit that the little ones usually appreciate.

Day 2
Archaeological Museum of Carmo

Arriving at Bairro Alto, you can get off at Luís de Camões Square or, if you have time, a little further on, at the Santa Catarina viewpoint. It is a very lively shopping area. From the square it heads towards the ruins of the Carmo Church, built in the 14th century and partially destroyed by the 1755 earthquake. It currently houses the Carmo Archaeological Museum, which houses pieces from prehistory to contemporary times.

Santa Justa Lift
Right next to it is the Santa Justa Lift, from where you can go down to the centre of Lisbon, going down Augusta Street and arriving at Commerce Square.

Commerce Square
The Commerce Square is one of the most representative places in Lisbon. This arcaded square, built in the 18th and 19th centuries, was completely destroyed by the 1755 earthquake. The square is dominated by the Statue of King Don José I and the Augusta Street Arch.
