Struggling to decide whether to tour the city by boat or by bus? With this excursion, you don’t have to. You can put your feet up as you explore by both land and water in an amphibious vehicle, accompanied by guides that know Lisbon like the back of their hand. As the bus glides through the streets and cruises across the water, you’ll get to see a lot of what the city has to offer. You’ll pass through Lisbon’s historic centre, taking in highlights including Rossio Square, and Avenida de Liberdade – the city’s garden-lined central artery. Then it’s on to Belem, where you can tick off sights like the Medieval Tower and the Jerónimos Monastery. You’ll also see where the ships departed for the Portuguese discoveries overseas back in the 15th and 16th centuries. During the drive, you can have a taste of tradition in the form of a pastel de nata. These egg custard tarts have been baked for hundreds of years and are a local favourite.
