Either meet your guide in central Lisbon or enjoy pickup at your Lisbon hotel. Hop aboard your luxury coach and begin with a short trip to Marqués de Pombal Square.
During the drive, you’ll learn about the great earthquake of 1755 from your guide, before arriving at the statue of the Marquis of Pombal — a monument that honors his role in the redevelopment of Lisbon after the 1755 earthquake — in the square.
Next, head to Lisbon’s vibrant central strip, Avenue da Liberdade, and enjoy the electric atmosphere of the city at night before you visit areas such as Rossio Square, the Tagus River and the Belém district.
See, too, the renowned Monument to the Discoveries, commemorative of famous Portuguese explorers, and the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Belém Tower, a memorial to Portugal’s exploration to the Americas. Nearby, learn about the famed Portuguese who are buried at the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Jerónimos Monastery.
Continue to the 25th of April Bridge, which spans the Tagus River and closely resembles San Francisco’s Bay Bridge. From here, enjoy views of the illuminated monuments that mirror gold in the Tagus River.
Return to the heart of Lisbon and spend the last part of your evening at a local restaurant, savoring delectable Portuguese food and experiencing a captivating fado show. See the best of Portugal's melancholic music genre as you listen to live songs performed by talented fado singers.
When the show concludes around midnight, continue to enjoy the evening independently or return to your hotel.
