What You Can Expect

Lisbon Shore Excursion: City Sightseeing Lisbon Hop-On Hop-Off Tour

Lisbon Shore Excursion: Lisbon Hop-on Hop-off Tour

Begin your Lisbon shore excursion hop-on hop-off tour from any of stops in the city. Getting off at a cruise port? Head to Avenue Vinte a Quatro de Julha (the primary coastal street) and find locations 10 and 17.

Then board a double decker bus and comfortably view 360 degree views of Lisbon. Listen to stimulating commentary as you approach Belem. Hop-off and explore the Marques do Pombal Square, a roundabout with angular hedges surrounding a large column and bronze statue dedicated to Portugal’s revered 16th-century prime minister. Then visit Lisbon’s Oceanarium, located at Parque das Nações, and see the largest indoor aquarium in Europe.

Continue your tour as you hop on and off as many times as you wish along both red and blue line stops. Customize your tour for the perfect balance of coastal and downtown attractions.

Perhaps head to the Bairro Alto and Chiado districts and enjoy a traditional shopping area that mixes old and modern commercial establishments. Take a break after winding through narrow corridors at a local cafe before leisurely hopping back on. Continue your journey full of stops at Lisbon’s most notable attractions.  

After a day of great city sightseeing on Lisbon’s hop-on hop-off tour simply return to your port, but make sure you leave plenty of time on your voyage back.
