Hi Rebe!

You can visit "Oceanário" in parque das nações. It's a hudge fish tank, with several types of especies,

a giant public aquarium entirely dedicated to the oceans and their conservation.

You can check their webpage www.oceanario.pt

have a nice trip, and if you need any other information fell free to asq

Other cool places are:

The zoo: Jardim Zoologico.

The often forgotten Vasco da Gama Aquarium in Algés district. You can catch the tram number 15 and walk a litle bit.

Hope this helps!

I second the Oceanario - it's absolutely spectacular and a must see for adults as well... otters, birds, giant manta rays, all in natural environments, and one of the biggest fish tanks in the world...

I'd also recommend taking him on the number 28 tram, which is a tiny old tram that snakes its way through Lisbon and is almost like a very safe roller coaster at times... great fun (but watch out for pickpockets)...

The Elevador de Santa Justa has the best views of Lisbon and you can have a coffee and a drink perched high above Lisbon...

If he likes slightly gross things (and what five year old doesn't?) the Carmo Museum has some Incan mummies that are very gross indeed... although maybe a little scary without preparing him... that said, the Carmo museum is a must see for the adults...

The Puppet museum is also supposed to be wonderful...

Last of all, don't miss a warm custard tart from Pasteis de Belem in (surprisingly) Belem... the ultimate Lisbon experience.

hi went to the lisbon coast last year. our kids really enjoyed the trip going up to the top of the statue of Jesus, fantastic views and the journey over the suspension bridge to get there is quite exciting. you can also go round the city on one of the trams. there are also lots of lovely beaches very close to the city. we only had a few hours there but think there would be heaps to do!
