TOUR PLAN

Lisbon

Upon arrival at Lisbon airport meet and greet by local representative. Private transfer to the hotel. Lisbon is an illuminated city. The almost constant presence of sunshine and the River Tagus transforms the Portuguese capital into a mirror of a thousand colors - highlighting the city’s unique architecture and beauty. There are so many things to see and do in Lisbon that visitors have access to a wide array of different experiences. As we walk through Lisbon - whose history spans back thousands of years – we find streets filled with heritage monuments, and characteristic neighborhoods where the city first developed and can still be experienced at its most genuine level.

Lisbon/Belém/Lisbon

The monuments in Belem are cultural icons and a must-see on any tour itinerary. Because of the unique combination of historical and cultural monuments located here, such as the Jeronimos Monastery, Belem Cultural Centre, Tower of Belem, Monument to the Discoveries, Palace of Ajuda and the Carriage Museum, and their sheer number, the best way to visit all of them is on a Belem Tour! This tour on a panoramic minibus complements the Tagus Tour perfectly.
