Few capitals are as diverse as Lisbon. From the tightly packed alleys of the old town to the elegant boulevards of Baixa Pombalina, it’s a city bursting with charm and life as well as classic yellow trams.
Your adventure will kick off reasonably early, allowing you to reach Lisbon in a good time. Cross the Golden Gate like 25th April Bridge over the River Tagus to the seafront district of Belém. Visit the magnificent Jeronimos Monastery and admire the Belém Tower. What’s more, you’ll get to peek behind the scenes at the renowned Pastéis de Belém bakery.
Next, get ready to enjoy a sightseeing bus ride and pass by the Basilica Estrela along with many other sights. Your guide will then point out the best bits to check out during your free time. The streets are lined with impressive buildings from Portugal’s imperial days. You’ll return to the Algarve via the Vasco da Gama Bridge, the longest in Europe.
