Lisbon in an afternoon

Sorry there are lots of information about 1.5-2.5 days stays in Lisbon but for only one afternoon (about 5hours)? We thought to take a taxi to and from airport (about EUR10 each way) (leaving suitcases in left luggage at the aiport which I have already investigated) and then take tram #28 and also see the Castle as a priority number 1? A lot of the forums talk about seeing the view and walking around the squares but unfortunately this trip we do not have time. Any feedback about where the taxi should leave us to maximise our afternoon or what we could see in the very limited time would be appreciated. Thankyou.

hello goingshopping,

here is my suggested tour for your 5h journey:

take a cab from airport to LARGO MARTIM MONIZ

departure: Praça do Aeroporto / Rotunda do Relógio (0.1km)

At the roundabout, Praça do Aeroporto, take the 3rd exit

Continue along: Avenida Almirante Gago Coutinho (2.5km)

At the roundabout, Praça Francisco Sá Carneiro, take the 3rd exit

Continue along: Avenida Almirante Reis (2.5km)

TakeRua da Palma (0.5km)


time: 10-15mins

distance: 5.5 kms

here you take the tram #28 (first station)

tram #28 suggested attractions:


leave in station MIRADOURO STA LUZIA to go to the castle.enjoy the wonderful city view.

leave tram at CHIADO and take a cofee in CAFE NICOLA at RUA GARRETT

leave tram at STA CATARINA and go to MIRADOURO DE STA CATARINA (sightseeing).

in this station also consider a walk in BAIRRO ALTO,a typical portuguese neighbourhood with narrow streets,

traditional shops and portuguese food restaurants.

leave tram at ESTRELA and visit the church and also take a nice walk in the garden.

Thankyou very much for your information (personally I think the best part is that you have also given me places to stop for a coffee and hopefully a lovely pastry!) Fabulous. Thankyou.
