If youâ€™ll be in Lisbon until the end of this month, take the opportunity to see the city from the river.
Operating from April 1st to October 31st, a sightseeingÂ cruise lets you admire Lisbonâ€™s skyline and riverfront monuments from the Tagus just as the cityâ€™s famous explorers saw them in the 15th century. Sure most of the views have changed since that time, but many of the towers and rooftops youâ€™ll look at are those that Vasco da Gama and others saw as they departed for their voyages.
Cruise past Belem Tower (itself rising from the river), under Lisbonâ€™s Golden Gate Bridge twin, through the central waterfront with the triumphal arch in Comercio Square, all the way to Parque das NaÃ§Ãµes, where the cityâ€™s modern architecture brings you back to the 21st century.
The boat departs from a terminal by Comercio Square at 3PM, and the entire trip takes about three hours. A multilingual guide explains the sights which you may then explore closer when youâ€™re back on land.
