Updated May 10, 2024

Lisbon is all about the details. The City of Seven Hills is filled with picture-perfect panoramas of pastel-colored buildings, charming neighborhoods, beautiful tile, and the haunting sounds of Fado music.

This Lisbon vegan guide is packed with amazing vegan restaurants, bakeries, shops, activities, and more! You won’t need anything else to plan your adventure.

What To Do & See in Lisbon

Explore Alfama + Feira da Ladra

Give your booty a workout with a climb (or you can take tram 28) to the beautiful and diverse Alfama neighborhood — this is also one of the best spots in Lisbon for photos! It is the oldest neighborhood in Lisbon and the only one unaffected by the 1755 earthquake that devastated the city. The winding stone streets are filled with restaurants, cafes, and you can find the Feira da Ladra — a great flea market or “Thieves’ Market” that has been operating since the 12th century. It is open on Tuesdays and Saturdays. Another way to explore this neighborhood is by taking one of the many free tours in Lisbon (just don’t forget to tip).

Shop, eat, and more at Mercado da Ribeira (also known as Time Out Market Lisboa)

This has been the main food market in Lisbon since 1892 (operations were taken over by Time Out Lisboa in 2014) — its of of the many landmarks in Portugal you shouldn’t miss! The market features an array of fresh produce along with 26 restaurants, 8 bars, a dozen shops, and live music. A great place for lunch, a drink, to find a souvenir or all of the above!

Check out the views and sightsee in Bairro Alto & Chiado

This is the upper district in Lisbon and to some, considered a more touristy area of the city. Despite that, I still loved the quaint stone streets, shops, and street art. This is also a great area to enjoy great views of the city. At night, the area is a hot spot for bars and nightlife.

Learn the history of the beautiful tile that surrounds Lisbon at The Museu Nacional do Azulejo (National Tile Museum)

One thing you cannot miss in Lisbon is its beautiful tile work. It is everywhere. Vibrant ceramic tiles adorn buildings, create art installations — they can be found on just about every street corner. The Museu Nacional do Azulejo is a hidden gem in Lisbon and a great place to learn the history and appreciate the beautiful Azulejo, traditional tilework of Portugal.

Take a day trip to Sintra

A UNESCO fairytale town at the foothills of the Sintra mountains with eye-catching palaces, castles, and more. At one time, this was the desired location for nobility to have their summer residence because of the cooler temperatures. Today, it is still considered a very wealthy area in Portugal. Sintra is the perfect day trip from Lisbon — you can take the train from the Rossio station, there are generally four trains per day, and it takes about 50 minutes. You can also book a tour to take you there and through the town. If you’re going in the summer, and want to book a tour, do it ahead of time. You can also easily spend more than a day here, there are plenty of lovely things to do in Sintra!
