While you need to be comfortable walking, it is generally a good idea to dress nicely, mainly because you may want to visit churches, museums, or other places that require a particular type of respectful behavior. Smart casual is typically a safe bet.
Lisbon generally has warm weather, so consider wearing a dress or skirt with a nice top for women and a button-down shirt with slacks for men. Avoid overly casual clothing such as shorts, flip-flops, tank tops, sportswear, and football team attire.
Avoiding high heels for this Lisbon tour is also recommended, as some walking will be involved, often on uneven and historic cobblestone streets. Opt for comfortable shoes or sandals that provide support and stability.
Lisbon’s sun can be intense, so it’s a good idea to bring a hat and sunglasses to protect yourself from the sun’s rays. Also, use sun cream. In case of rain (very unusual), bringing an umbrella is also recommended.
You might want to buy a souvenir, so consider this when organizing your budget. Remember that some local shops may not accept credit cards or have a minimum purchase requirement, so it’s a good idea to bring cash just in case.
Eat before venturing out.
Eating before heading out is always wise. While trying new foods and drinks can be exciting, it’s important to remember that you may not have enough time to have a proper long meal. Also, bring water to stay hydrated, especially on hot and sunny days.
