What to Wear in Lisbon in June
Best Shoes for Lisbon in June
The perfect shoe for Lisbon at any time of year is a sneaker in my opinion. And June is no exception.
As Lisbon is a very hilly city it is important to have shoes that can handle the steepness. It is also a city full of cobbled stones and uneven walkways so having a shoe like a sneaker is really the safest option for doing lots of walking.
For summer in Lisbon my go to sneakers are lightweight Allbirds but this is personal choice.Just remember to wear them with sneaker socks as this will reduce swear and odor in your shoe.
The weather in Lisbon in June really suits a sandal. While I recommend walking around the city in a sneaker, a sandal is better for going out to dinner in Lisbon.
Just look for a sandal with a good sole and avoid anything with a thin heel.
Flip Flops (optional)
Only required if you plan to head to the beach or use a pool in Lisbon. Otherwise you might as well leave the flip flops at home.
What to Wear in Lisbon in June for women
The best trousers for Lisbon in June are light weight ones. I would recommend chinos and linen trousers as the best for reducing sweat.
Jeans are too hot for the day time but could be used earlier in the month at night if the temperatures are cool. Towards the end of June however jeans will be too warm for Lisbon.
Skirts and dresses
As I have mentioned before, in Lisbon really anything goes so select skirts and dress types that you are most comfortable in.
However there is one location where you need to be more conservative. Lisbon Cathedral as with many European churches such as the Sagrada Familia and the Vatican, require visitors to keep shoulders and knees covered.
Therefore on days you plan to visit religious settings remember to be more conservative in your attire.
A loose blouse works perfectly for warmer days and cooler nights in Lisbon of which there are several.
Lisbon in June is warm, and being a casual city short sleeve t shirts are the perfect addition to your packing list.
One of the things I like about Lisbon is that it is actually quite a vibrant city. Therefore you can go a bit bolder with the color palette of your capsule wardrobe for Lisbon.
Cardigan / Sweater/ Jacket
Though the days are warm in Lisbon in June, the evenings in Lisbon tend to be cool enough to warrant having a top layer such as a cardigan, sweater or even a smart blazer.
Just be sure that whatever you pick can go with a variety of outfits as you will only want to pack one or two for a week in Lisbon.
A pashmina is on all of my European packing lists no matter the month of travel. They are perfect for cooler days as an extra layer and also can make outfits more modest if your top does not meet churches dress code rules.
PJs or Nightie
Lightweight pyjamas and nighties are perfect especially towards the end of the month.
Sunglasses are essential in Lisbon whatever the month but especially in Summer. Just be sure to pack a pair that have good UV protection.
I always recommend taking a sun hat if you are visiting Lisbon in summer but I would also say that the sun is strong enough in June to warrant a sunhat.
Thought the water is warming up enough to swim in the sea around Lisbon you should only bring swimwear if you plan on doing this or if your hotel has a pool that you plan on using.
Underwear and Socks
Goes without saying. We recommend packing sneaker socks for wearing with sneakers due to the heat in the city.
What to pack for Lisbon in June for Men
The rules of what to pack for Lisbon in Summer for men is similar to women. We recommend packing
Chinos and linen trousers are perfect for Lisbon in June as they are the perfect weight for the weather.
I would only really recommend jeans as being suitable at the beginning of the month and for evenings.
The weather especially towards the end of the month will be hot enough for shorts.
They are also great for those wanting to sunbath on the beach.
Just note that shorts are not appropriate for men at churches in Portugal, just the same as with woman.
T Shirts and Shirts
Short sleeve t shirts are perfect for sightseeing during the day in June.
However for evenings I would recommend having a button down shirt with long sleeves and maybe a polo shirt for day to night transition outfits.
Blazer / Sweater
Although summer is warm, the evenings can be chilly so having a blazer or sweater with you for chillier evenings is a good idea.
Just pick something that can work with a variety of outfits so you don’t have to pack too many.
Only if you have access to a pool or want to visit a beach.
An essential no matter the month.
For same reason as above.
Underwear, Socks and Pjs
Sneaker socks are a good idea for wearing sneakers to sightsee in.
