Description

Eastern Lisbon used to be an ugly industrial area until it was chosen as the site to host the last world fair of the 20th century, Expo 98. It has since been reborn into a futuristic glass-and-steel district, home to some wonderful examples of modern architecture.

One of them is Oriente Station, a landmark with the signature of Santiago Calatrava, while Pritzker-award winning architect Alvaro Siza Vieira is the man behind the fantastic Pavilhão de Portugal, known for its remarkable undulating roof. Many of the other constructions have an ocean theme (the twin towers São Gabriel and São Rafael resemble ships and are named after two of Vasco da Gama's vessels), and there is also one of the world's most spectacular aquariums nearby.

Everywhere you turn is a glimpse of the river looking like an ocean crossed by Europe's longest bridge, water volcanos erupting, wave-shaped benches, exotic greenery, public art by Portuguese and international artists, cable cars overlooking it all, and an unashamedly avant-garde side of Lisbon contrasting with its old historic center.

A unique and fun way to explore the old city
My family first tried this when they were in Lisbon last week and we really enjoyed it! It was very funny! We explored the streets of the old city with our guides who were very friendly and very informative. It was an experience we have never had before and I recommend it especially if you have teenagers with you. They will really enjoy this alternative tour.

Fantastic completely recommend it
We went on the night drive. As it was at the end of the season there is only my husband and I. The segways are really easy to operate and the guide was knowledgeable and fun.

We cross the conked streets of Alfana district to the Se Cathedral and back down. We stop for cherry - cherry liqueur in chocolate cups - which is not to like!

I am desperate to do this again.

Fun way to see some of the city
My teenage daughter and I took the Old Town Tour. Although we had already walked around, it was really informative and interesting to learn more about the history and buildings in the area.
The sitgos were a lot of fun. We were a little apprehensive at first but they were easy to get off the slope of, although my background was a little sunken af ​​the end!
A very fun hour and a half. I would definitely recommend - the reactions of other tourists as we passed also made us laugh!
