My family and I will be spending 3-weeks in December in Lisbon! We are coming from NY and plan on getting an Airbnb in the middle of the city. This will be the first time we’ve spent a holiday together away from our NY home. So will be a bit odd. Does it snow in Lisbon during xmas? I don’t believe so. Anyway, do you know of a calendar of events going on during the holiday season? We are hoping to see some traditional Xmas shows and event. Not really sure what to expect. Great blog and I look forward to your response.
Hi Luke Anthony.
So…no snow in Lisbon during Christmas. At least it would be an anomaly. Lisbon is not the best "Christmas" city like NYC or Strasbourg would be. The holiday is a lot quieter and less ostentatious. There may be a few Christmas shows in the Theater district, but I don’t recall seeing anything really holiday-y over the past 2 years. There are some Christmas markets where you can get some vinho quente and roasted chestnuts…but again, don’t expect the city to be decked out in lights. It will take a few years until that really begins to happen here.
That being said, Lisbon is wonderful any time of year.
