Things to Do in Lisbon during February

Although it won't always be especially warm during February, there shouldn't be too much rain, so you might want to consider taking a pay-what-you-wish Lisbon walking tour.

Even if you do happen to visit on a rainy day, there are quite a few wonderful museums to experience, including the National Tile Museum.

When the sun goes down, head to one of the many local venues where you can hear an authentic live Fado music performance.

If you're looking for an easy way to get around to the most notable sites, consider either a hop-on hop-off bus tour or a ride on the historic Tram 28!
