Lisbon Highlights


Approximately 3 hours 30 minutes
Moderate Activity 

A panoramic drive gives you a chance to enjoy Lisbon's highlights. Watch for Avenida da Liberdade, with its mosaic-lined sidewalks, Black Horse Square and the Park Edward VII viewpoint with a magnificent view of the city.

Visit the Jeronimos Monastery, a 16th-century architectural masterpiece designed in Gothic-Manueline style and built to commemorate the discoveries of the Portuguese navigators.

Step inside the Maritime Museum and, nearby, you will see the lavishly decorated Belem Tower. Watch for the Monument to the Discoveries, erected in 1960 to mark the 500th anniversary of the death of Henry the Navigator.

Stretching across the River Tagus is the April 25th Bridge. This immense span is sister to the Golden Gate, with the towering Christ the King statue on the far side.

Return to the ship at the pier in Lisbon.
