Shore Excursions in Lisbon
Lisbon, founded in the 13th century, is the capital and main city of Portugal, one of the oldest nations in Europe. There are many sites to see during the short time the cruise ship is in port. Many things to see include the Padrao dos Descobrimentos, a monument dedicated to the Portuguese maritime discoveries. Visit Alfama, the oldest area of Lisbon, and the beautiful Parca do Comercio square on a walking tour. Don't miss seeing Europe's longest supension bridge, Bridge of 25 April. The Coach Museum has one of the best coach collections in Europe. There is also the Jeronimos Monastery, an UNESCO World Heritage site, and the many royal residences of Portugal's monarchs.
