We are officially in the summer and with the high temperatures, what we most want is to enjoy the longer days of this season. In this text, we have separated 5 unmissable tips for walks in Lisbon in the summer. Of course, some of them can be done at any time of the year, but nothing better than enjoying the good weather to go for a walk, right? Get to know all our tips!
1- Ride tuk tuk
Tuk-tuks are famous all over the world, including in Lisbon. The tuk-tuk is neither a car nor a motorcycle, it is actually a motorized tricycle with a cabin for passenger transportation. Because it is compact, it is ideal for tours in the city center, because the streets are narrow and cars often don’t pass through them. With the tuk-tuk it is possible to get to know some different alleys, as well as enjoy the most diverse sights of the city.
2- Boat trip on Tejo river
If you are visiting Lisbon in the summer, this is a must-do tour! Besides being a pleasant ride, it allows you to have a different perspective of the city and take beautiful pictures. Normally it is possible to do this tour between the months of June and October. So if you go to the city at this time, don’t miss this opportunity.
