From the pier, travel along the banks of the Tagus River to Baixa, the old business and shopping district with charming narrow streets and the famous squares of Comércio and Rossio. Drive along Liberty Avenue, a charming old boulevard lined with gardens and known for its unique black and white mosaic sidewalks.

At King Edward VII Park, enjoy a splendid view over Lisbon's center and Old Town. Passing under an 18th-century aqueduct, you will reach the express road to Estoril -- a resort town known for the many famous personalities exiled here during World War II.

Use your free time to stroll along the sea walk at Estoril, and to photograph the Casino gardens or relax on your own at an outdoor café.

The drive back to the ship will take you along the beautiful Atlantic coastline. At the mouth of the harbor, you will enter Lisbon via its famous monumental district that celebrates the glorious heyday of global exploration.

Take advantage of one last photo stop near the spectacular memorial to Prince Henry the Navigator. This is also the ideal place from which to see the suspension bridge across the river and the statue of Christ the King on the far bank.
