Lisbon – Snapshots of Lisbon: This introduction provides a look at the highlights of Portugal’s charming capital. As you head to the oldest part of the city, your licensed guide points out some of the major sites that can be enjoyed from the motor coach. The Alfama Quarter - the layout of this ancient quarter intrigues you with its ambiance, maze of alleyways and narrow, cobbled streets lined by closely packed houses, many of Moorish design. Continue with your drive through the city center to Alto do Parque Belvedere for a photo stop and to enjoy the magnificent view over the city. Once across the span, pause for photos at the base of the Monument Chris the King, a 361-foot-high statue portraying the sacred heart. Jeronimos Monastery - crossing the bridge once again proceed to this 16th-century architectural masterpiece designed in Gothic Manueline style. Belém Tower - next, proceed to Lisbon’s prominent landmark dominating the bank of the Tagus River. From this lavishly decorated tower, Portuguese explorers were given a rousing send-off. (Photo stop) Leaving the Belém area, you are taken to the airport. Duration: 3.5 hours
This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
