This is the ideal tour for those who would like to visit Lisbon from the comfort of a coach. The panoramic drive through Lisbon city center will cover some of the city highlights – Comércio and Rossio Squares, Liberty Avenue and Marquês de Pombal the man who rebuilt the city after Lisbon’s great earthquake in 1755. At Edward VII Park there will be some time for photos where you can admire the fine views over the Castle of St George, downtown Lisbon and the River Tagus.
Our tour takes us past the Bullring Square and Lisbon’s impressive 18th century stone aqueduct, which is 11 miles, long and until recently was used to bring fresh water into Lisbon.
We cross the April 25th Suspension Bridge, one of the world’s longest suspension bridges, which connect the city of Lisbon to the southern margin. The bridge was built in 1966 and is often compared to the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, due to their similarities (they were also built by the same construction company). After a brief photo stop at the Christ the King Statue we continue to the monumental area of Belem. Visit to Jeronimos Monastery (Church) founded by King Manuel and designed by the architect Boytac considered one of the most prominent monasteries in Portugal. Continue to Belem Tower built to commemorate the explorer Vasco da Gama’s expedition and Monument to the Discoveries, which was, unveiled as part of the 500-year anniversary of the death of Henry the Navigator.
