Sometimes it's 30 or 35 C.....

A few things . . .
Luggage and bags: I always travel light, but just remember to carry no more than you need. You can purchase all the necessities in Lisbon if you forget something and you'll probably want to save some room in your luggage for gifts and other things you'll want to buy. Prices are cheaper in Portugal than most other western European countries.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: If you come in the winter, be sure to have a good raincoat. The sky can be very unpredictable in Lisbon.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: If you need any basic medicine, you can find a neighborhood farmacia, where the staff will be trained to give you suggestions and for basic diagnosis of most simple ailments. Just look for the green cross.
Photo Equipment: As always, be sure to bring your photo equipment. Portugal is famous among photographers for its light, which is accentuated by the prevalent white-stoned pavement that you'll find throughout Lisbon and other Portuguese cities.
Luggage and bags: do u like to do some luggage?...enjoy Lisbon...that's with u!
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: tennis...t-shirts...sun glasses...
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: ...hummm...condoms...viagra...:)
Photo Equipment: Good equipment...with flashes and everything...but becarefull with some " people "
Luggage and bags: If you go in January, leave room in your suitcase when you pack. There were some great deals on clothes and shoes and almost every store was having a sale.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Winter in Lisbon can be rainy and sometimes chilly so be sure to pack a warm jacket and an umbrella. Good walking shoes are a must as most of the streets and sidewalks are cobblestones and tiles.
Miscellaneous: If you don't speak portugese, take a dictionary with you. I learned pretty quickly that even though the language looks similar to spanish, it is pronounced quite differently. That said, knowing spanish can at least help with identifying written words and enable you to pick up on the general meaning.
Luggage and bags: Bring your camera, the rest its all here...
Most people speaks and understands English and French (fewer of them) very well, German or Italian will be a problem... A map helps a lot ( they are for free in tourists info spots) because people will be kind to point the right way on it, even if they do not speak well, just try to spell them the name of the place you want to go...
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Weather can get a little unpredictable (except in warm July and August), just be prepared for some changes, the afternoons can get a little windy....
Miscellaneous: Try to have always lots of spear money (small coins) because people in shops and other places are a little rude when you use big paper money...
Luggage and bags: Lactaid, Immodium, watch
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Good shoes, no heels, the sidewalks in Portugal are made of uneven small rocks, very pretty but hard to walk on and very slippery in the rain (Lisbon is hilly in some parts)
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Lactaid, Immodium, watch out for milk products, some recommend taking a Hepatitus A shot.
Photo Equipment: Digital camera :)
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: BRING NICE CLOTHES!!! People dress up in Lisbon for everything.
We went in January. It was warm but bring a jacket. It gets a little chilly at night. Bring good walking shoes. The streets are made of cobblestone. You might also have to do a lot of walking up & down hills.
Luggage and bags: I went by air: no problem for the airport transfers, they have a service called aero-bus which provide more space than usual for baggages; be careful when you leave from the city to the apt cause sometimes aero-bus (aka line 91) is really crowded. Take your time and consider you maybe have to skip a run to catch the following one ...
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: I was there september 8 thru 11 and I was ok with shorts and t-shirts.
Photo Equipment: As ususal batteries for digicam could be hard to find ...
Miscellaneous: A city map with bus-tram plan could help a lot when planning visits to museum & so on ...
nice sturdy pair of shoes & 2 pairs of socks
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: the roads are made with the stone pavements in lisbon, so wear sturdy pair of shoes or you may slip or there may be pain in your legs
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Make sure you pack comforable walking shoes as Lisbon is such a great city to walk around, but extremely hilly and the uneven cobblestone streets can lead to sore feet at the end of the day.
Luggage and bags: ...It is by the Belgian scupltor Folon who had an exposition of his statues at Castelo in Summer 2001 as well as in some places around the city!
