Lisbon has some sights that you won’t find anywhere else – and a visit to the city isn’t complete without taking in at least a few of them. Culture Trip’s curated list of tours and experiences take you to the very heart of the city.

With its winding, hilly streets, lively atmosphere and stunning waterfront, Portugal’s capital has so much to discover. Whether you’re keen to learn how to surf or just looking for the secret to the perfect traditional pastel de nata, these experiences will give you a unique look at this beautiful city.



Lisbon affords white sand beaches and several surf spots for beginners or advanced surfers at about 10-30 minutes’ drive from the city center. Get to know and surf some of the coolest and hidden spots around Lisbon with a local surfer. Surf in one spot, based on sea conditions and surfing ability. Have a ride with a local guide and enjoy the most hidden and fantastic places.



This is the only cooking class in Lisbon where you’ll get to learn about pastry making at a real award-winning Portuguese bakery! We’ll go inside the kitchen of João’s very own “pastelaria” in downtown Lisbon, that won 3rd Best Pastel de Nata in Lisbon in 2018. This is where you will learn how to bake the irresistible Portuguese Custard Tarts (aka Pastel de Nata) everybody is raving about these days.This class is open to all levels, even if you don’t have previous baking experience.
