Yes there is plenty of wifi in the city (eg free in McDonalds!) but you may have some finding to do the further you get away.

Most post offices have wifi but you cannot sit there to use it.

Best ask around in the places you stay. You can get listings at www.jwire.com but I have found a lot of the information there incomplete or inaccurate.

Yes the best place is definitely the McDonalds, strange as it may seem! Any McDonalds at all in Lisboa. It's ptwifi and the connection's usually good. Detect the connection, enter any website and you're asked for the following info, which you should fill in as follows:
Site: McDonalds@ptwifi.pt
Password: McDonalds
(sometimes that information is on a board, sometime's it isn't and you'd have to ask an employee).

Here's a site that has a list of hotspots in Lisboa:

(although the ptwifi ones aren't free access, you have to be a member usually)

Even if you can find wifi, it does not mean there are power ports, so beware of that too. McDonald's is the best bet for free, reliable wifi here. I'm not kidding.

Hi,
Thanks for your replies, I have now returned from Lisbon and can confirm that I tried McDonalds in several locations and found that I was unable to log on, although I did see others using lap tops. It was also very noisy with kids running around and shrieking. We stayed at the camp site and although they offered Internet access it was rarely working. Eventually I discovered that the Ibis hotels offer free Internet and WiFi for their guests, so I asked politely and was allowed to use it.

Travel Tips for Lisbon

The Discoveries Monument

by santax

The Discoveries Monument is a reminder that Lisbon was a starting point for many of the world's great 15th century voyages of discovery. There are great bird's-eye views of the historical Belem district from above.

BELEM TOWER - TORRE DE BELEM

by LoriPori

This military masterpiece, was built in the early 16th century in the Manueline style. TORRE DE BELEM is a fortified tower located in the Belem District of Lisbon. The Tower, constructed between 1515 and 1521, was built as part of a defensive system at the entrance to the River Tagus.
Moorish influence can be seen in the decorations - the arched windows, the balconies and the ribbed cupolas of the watchtowers. Originally, the Tower stood on a little island near the right bank of the River Tagus. With the progressive creep of the shoreline over the years, the Tower is now on the bank itself.
I must say that the Belem Tower is my absolute favourite Lisbon structure. It's just so beautiful and in such lovely surroundings.
Belem Tower became a UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE SITE in 1983.
Located on Praca da Torre de Sao Vicente, Belem

Alfama and the castle

by santax

Visiting Alfama is stepping into a medieval village without leaving a major capital city. Walking around its cobbled streets all the way to the castle which offer breathtaking views of the city was one of my favorite Lisbon experiences. Don't miss it.

No pants in Lisbon's metro

by SoulFisher

Seeing passengers in the metro travelling without pants (American meaning) is not a traditional custom but... you may see that happen in one afternoon of January.
This idea came from the other side of the Atlantic: The No Pants Subway Ride. It is done mostly in American cities, but also at least 6 European cities participate.

Once a year a group of people gather with the sole purpose of travelling by metro. Once inside they look serious and aloof just like any other city passenger, reading, listening to music, looking to nowhere, but... oops... they forgot their pants...!

Anyone can participate in this event as long as they follow the rules: use panties (...aah..I mean knickers) or boxers, no trousers (no pants), no shorts, no skirts, and behave like a normal passenger.

It takes place on a January Sunday.

Here's the international website for this event: http://improveverywhere.com/2008/12/29/global-no-pants-subway-ride/

Here's the link for Lisbon's event (in Portuguese):
http://improveverywhere.ning.com/group/improvlisboa/forum/topics/no-pants-09-10-de-janeiro

The photo was provided to me by the organization. The metro of Lisbon does not allow taking pictures inside without permission. So it's better not to take pictures.

Not just a Spanish sport

by acemj

The Portuguese also enjoy their bullfights and you can go see the sport in the praca de touros (bullring) off of Avenida de Republica between May to October. I snapped this photo of the Moorish-style arena on the ride from the airport into town. Tickets are cheapest if purchased outside the bullring.

The fights last about two hours and are similar to Spanish bullfighting, but not exactly the same. The bull's horns are dulled by capping them with leather or metal balls and the animal is not actually killed in the ring, although he is usually destroyed after the fight in a less public place.

The fights in Lisbon are said to be a bit more tourist oriented than those in the Ribatejo provinces, so if you want authenticity, head to Santarem (about an hour northeast of Lisbon).
