Lisbon, Portugal Price Guide Last Updated: Dec 2021

Lisbon doesn’t have many must-see attractions, but the whole place is charming and is an excellent travel bargain compared to similar cities in Europe. Hotels and hostels are unusually affordable considering the high standards here, and bargains are usually easy to find outside of the busiest summer months.

Most of the attractions are free or cheap, and don’t forget about the famous Tram 28 that trundles through all of the interesting tourist neighborhoods in one loop as you get to ride along with locals for a normal tram fare.
