Begin your tour by driving alongside the River Tagus towards the old district of Baixa, with its narrow streets. Listen carefully as your guide points out the main sights, including the charming boulevard of Liberty Avenue, lined with gardens and renowned for its unique black and white pavements. A brief stop will be made at the King Edward VII Park, where fine views over Lisbon and the distant hills can be enjoyed.
Take some free time in Estoril to stroll along the promenade, view the gardens of the Casino, which are impressively sited at the top of the central park, or simply relax in a local café. Heading back to the city of Lisbon, you’ll see the famous Belem Tower and Jeronimos Gothic Monastery. A photo stop will be made at the Monument to the Discoveries, a tribute to Portuguese heroes linked with the age of discovery; from here you can also see the suspension bridge and statue of Christ the King on the other side of the river.
- The ground at Estoril is mainly cobblestoned.
- There is a walk of around 200 metres to reach the beach promenade area for those passengers choosing to visit during their free time.
