City of Seven Hills

Built on seven hills, Lisbon has experienced a renaissance in recent years, making it the cultural star of Portugal.
You'll explore and learn at Museu Calouste Gulbenkian and Museu Nacional do Azulejo. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Praia da ursa and Costa de Caparica. Step out of Lisbon with an excursion to Quinta da Regaleira in Sintra--about 36 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: explore the historical opulence of Castelo de S. Jorge, get a new perspective on things with Nosso Tejo, choose your vessel at Lisbon by Boat, and take in the views from Ponte 25 de Abril.

Make your Lisbon itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

Sao Paulo, Brazil to Lisbon is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. You'll lose 3 hours traveling from Sao Paulo to Lisbon due to the time zone difference. Plan for somewhat warmer temperatures traveling from Sao Paulo in July, with highs in Lisbon at 34°C and lows at 20°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 14th (Tue) early enough to travel to Venice.
