This Private Accessible Lisbon Half Day Driving Tour begins as your professional private guide and accessible van meets you at your central accessible Lisbon hotel. From here, you’ll set out on a 4-hour adventure, tailored to your preferred pace and accessibility needs. There will be plenty of time to admire all the fascinating sites, listen to the guide’s fascinating stories, soak in some magnificent panoramic views, and capture some beautiful pictures to share back home.
Board your private accessible van to start the tour by following the very old line of the Number 28 tram, passing through the old and narrow streets of Lisbon and the Cathedral of Lisbon (Sé Catedral de Lisboa). You will make a stop at the view point of Graça to have a breathtaking view of Lisbon and its Castle. Next, you will continue to Belem, a picturesque district to the west of Lisbon, where many of the capital’s most notable and important tourist attractions are located. During your drive, you’ll see the fascinating Estrela Basilica, and The Palácio de São Bento, home of the the Portuguese parliament. Have your camera ready to capture the beautiful Tower of Belem, which has been recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site! Here you will make a brief stop and continue on foot to the famous pattern of discoveries (from where the Portuguese navigators set out to discover the world).
Continue your drive along the beautiful River Tagus with a view on the April 25th Bridge (an impressive suspension bridge connecting the city of Lisbon with the south bank of the Tagus River) and also a view of the the enormous monument Christ the King statue. The tour further takes you towards Rossio Square (Lisbon’s main central square and heart of the city) with its stone paving, grand fountains, statue of Dom Pedro IV and its beautiful neoclassical Donna Maria II Theatre! From Rossio Square, you will pass the famous Santa Justa Lift, a beautifully crafted elevator that transports passengers from between districts.
Follow your guide through Rua Augusta with its hidden ruins and amazing triumphal arch opening up to the famous Comercio Square, Lisbon's monumental riverside square. On one side, you will have the Tagus River while stately government buildings border the other sides. This waterfront square marks the place where the Royal palace stood before being destroyed by an earthquake. The square was developed as part of the reconstruction of the city after the earthquake.
As the tour ends, you will be escorted back to your central accessible Lisbon Hotel.
