What to wear in Lisbon in December?
Bring a fuzzy sweater, a coat, and a warm scarf for nighttime. Even in December, though, weather in Lisbon is pretty mild.

In Lisbon proper, expect daytime temperatures around 15°C (60°F) and nighttime temps falling to an average of 8°C (45°F).
Where are the best Christmas markets in Portugal?
In the heart of Lisbon, in Baixa, near Bairro Alto, you’ll find the Rossio Christmas Market. With an eclectic mix of handmade goods and regional products, this is the perfect spot to find a really original gift. Our recommendation is to stay warm while perusing the stalls with a cup of mulled wine.
Can you buy Christmas crackers in Portugal?
So, yes, you can do your online Christmas shopping here, but it’ll take longer to arrive. Everyone knows that TV can be a bit disappointing at Christmas, and this is definitely true in Portugal. It pays to be prepared, and so it’s worth either bringing out some DVDs or signing up for Netflix in advance (you can also do this on the day, either).
