I should not rating the visit because we did not see the inside of the palace or museum.
We visited Belem on Friday and only the Museum was open. We were told that the Palace is open only on Saturday and you need to book...More
We booked a group tour in advance and it was worthwhile, interesting and well done. We toured the inside of the Palace as well as the lovely manicured gardens. Spectacular views around every corner of major Lisbon landmarks. Our guide was a pure joy and...More

You pay 2.5€ even if you have the Lisboa card, only to see the exposition about president's. This is nothing exceptional : a collection of presents received during official visits and an interactive (boring) show on tablet about each of the presidents.
Absolutely not interesting....More
You can only visit the palace, which is still the working area for the Portuguese president on Saturdays! The museum is opened on other days as well. Get there early (around 9) and check when you can get an amazing guided tour in English or...More
The 3 state rooms inside the presidential palace are only open to the public on Saturdays and you have to book a guided tour (the one in English this August was at 14.30 in the afternoons). This means that only small groups of people actually...More
This is the official residence of the President of the portuguese republic, although he doesn't live there. The gardens are very beautifull but the inside is the best (unffortunately it is not possible to take pictures inside). There is also a very good museum dedicated...More

We were really expecting a magnificent palace. After all, the president of Portugal lives there.
However, we were met by a very neglected pinkish façade, which fails to impress even when watched from a distance.
There were no tours available when we visited, and the...More

Belém is the "capital of the Portuguese Discoveries" and a photographer's paradise. You can spend an entire day exploring this neighborhood: monuments (Jerónimos Monastery, Belém Tower, Monument to the Discoveries), museums (Coach Museum, Centro Cultural de Belém) and breathtaking views of the Tagus river will make your visit worth your time. Belém also offers a variety of restaurants and cafes, namely the famous - and
delicious - "Pastéis de Belém" (typical Portuguese custard tarts; make sure you buy an extra box of those!). Easily accessible from Lisbon's historic center, Belém is a must-do, especially if you're spending more than one day visiting the Portuguese capital.
