Take a breathtaking 8-hour tour of discovery around Lisbon, Portugal's capital city and site of some of the most important monuments from Portuguese history. Go to the vast complex of the Jerónimos Monastery, see the Tower of Belém, and much more.
What to Expect
Explore the historic sights and neighborhoods of Lisbon on a private full-day tour, traveling by luxury air-conditioned Mercedes Vito or C-class sedan.
Following a pick-up from your hotel, drive to Sé Cathedral to see a wonderful example of Roman-Gothic medieval architecture. Built for the 1st Bishop of Lisbon, just after the re-taking of Lisbon from the Moors in 1147, the basilica has survived many earthquakes to stand tall at the heart of the city.
Go to the Castle of St. George (Castle of São Jorge), built by the Moors and proudly overlooking the city from one of its hills. Enjoy panoramic views across the city, before exploring the historic Belém district where the Portuguese navigators set off on their explorations to build a Portuguese Empire. Go to the Museum of Carriages to see historic carriages from 3 centuries.
Marvel at the Padrão dos Descobrimentos monument to Portuguese seafaring, inaugurated in 1960 to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the death of Infante D. Henrique. Next, go to the impressive Jerónimos Monastery, a superb example of Late Gothic Manueline architecture.
End at the Tower of Belém at the mouth of the River Tagus, and learn how it protected Lisbon from unwanted invasions, and played an important role in Portugal’s “Age of Discoveries.”
