1. Lisbon Guided Tuk Tuk Tour: The City by the River
Discover Lisbon and its relationship to the Tagus River and Atlantic Ocean on a riverside tour by tuk tuk. See some of the best-known monuments in the city center, staying close to the Tejo (Tagus River) at all times. Following a pick-up from your hotel, transfer to the banks of the river, and explore the city’s most historic areas. Drivers who can converse in different languages, and have an in-depth knowledge of Lisbon’s history, culture, art, and architecture, operate the 100% electric vehicles. Marvel at the architecture of the Praça do Comércio, built after the great 1755 Lisbon Earthquake. Pass the Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga (National Museum of Ancient Art) on the “Street of the Green Windows.” Enjoy panoramic views of the river from the Miradouro Rocha Conde d'Óbidos. Along the way, pass the white façade of the Fundação Oriente Museu, home to important Portuguese and Asian art; the imposing industrial façade of the Museu da Electricidade (Museum of Electricity); and the home of an extraordinary collection of royal coaches at the Museu dos Coches. Learn about Portugal’s “Age of Discoveries” at the Padrão dos Descobrimentos monument and Torre de Belém. Pass the impressive 16th-century Mosteiro dos Jerónimos, and more.
