Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Make your way to the Praça da Figueira in central Lisbon, where you can present your voucher for a hop-on, hop-off bus tour of the city. From the center, the 100-minute route heads up the eastern edge of Lisbon, through a picturesque landscape of rolling hills and colorful neighborhoods.

    The highlight of the route is the ultra-modern Parque das Nações, site of the 1998 World Expo, where you’ll find the longest bridge in Europe, the enormous Lisbon Oceanarium, and futuristic architecture at the edge of the Tagus River.

    You’ll also pass through the hilly, Bohemian neighborhoods of Chiado and Bairro Alto, packed full of glamorous cafes, boutique shopping, bistros, and galleries. And as you explore Lisbon, listen to stories and fun facts about the city on recorded commentary, with a booklet of discounts to monuments, museums, and activities to use along the way.

    Throughout the 24-hour period, enjoy access to the Aerobus that links Lisbon with the airport, the use of public trams, and use of the Santa Just Lift and Lisbon Funiculars. This independent bus tour concludes 24 hours after your first ride.

    We are huge fans of hop on hop off buses. Lisbon is just not a city to accommodate it. The streets are narrow and many can only be traversed by small cab or tuk-tuk. We did 2 of the hop on and off routes - the purple which highlighted a modern city, shopping area then lots of

    In Lisbon, we got off our cruise ship and booked the Yellow Bus tour. What a mistake! The first bus that they try to get you to board just spends 3 hours to go to a mall, nothing else (who wants to go to a regular shopping mall when visiting Lisbon for a day???). The other
