Book yourself a room in the heart of the city and explore. Depending on the time you land and when you leave, you may get to see some of the great sites. If not, enjoy a great meal, walk around to experience the energy of Lisbon and then maybe seeing some of the sites early in the morning. Lisbon is amazing. It’s the reason why I moved to the city. Portugal Travel is a great group to help you plan

I was there in 2019. I'd stay in the Terreiro do Paço (Praça do Comércio) area or ALfama area. It is amazing. There is a whole area there with shops and coffee shops if you want to shop jsut past the arches. The Alfma is is super cool and they have shows with fado music which was very cool if you want some culture at night. There is the famous yellow tram you can take up the hill there too and a castle at the top with a 360 degree view of the area... Its only 20 minutes form airport and They have UBER everywhere. Have a blast Portugal is amazing!

If you have time, jump in a TukTuk. You'll see most of the good stuff at a decent price and little time wasted. Here are the contact details of the guide we had in September. Tell him Tom sent you lol. Oh, and can you ask if I dropped my glasses in the back seat.
