cruise terminal

by gartonr

can anyone let me know where the cruise ships dock in Lisbon (Royal Caribbean), trying to work out where to go etc. and it will help to know where we are starting from.

Either Cais de Alcantara or Cais Rocha da Conde d'Obidos which are close to each other near the bridge Ponte de 25 abril and railway station Alcantara-Mar. Trams along the waterfront (to Belem) serve a stop of the same name. Royal Caribbean name both piers, so you would have to ask them exactly where your particular ship is docked.

There's a map on http://www.portodelisboa.pt/portal/page/portal/PORTAL_PORTO_LISBOA/PORTO_LISBOA/LOCALIZACAO/MAPA_PORTO (or http://www.portodelisboa.pt/portal/page/portal/PORTAL_PORTO_LISBOA/PORTO_LISBOA/LOCALIZACAO then click on mapa do porto on the right): click on the 2nd square from the left at the top, you should easily identify the bridge and it could be any of the berths 3-8.

At the docks mentioned in the previous post you'll be in the area were you'll have a lot of public transports, here's a suggestion:
If you like to go and discover by yourself than the tram nº15 will takes you both to Belém or downtown.
If you choose to go downtown and decide not walk a lot you'll have some other trams (nº28 or nº12) that will take you into the old neighborhoods.
If you like sightseeing tours, hop on-hop off, etc you'll find it also downtown (Praça do Comércio) with the city transportation company (Carris). You can choose to do it by tram or bus.

Travel Tips for Lisbon

Avenida Almirante Reis

by 64novpt

Little things about Lisbon.
This avenue was open the early years of the 20 century, Avenida Almirante Reis is the extension to the north of Rua da Palma (Praça da Figueira area) and ends at Praça Francisco Sa Carneiro. Initially called Dona Amelia Av (after the queen then) it was changed after the Republic to the present name in honor of Carlos Cândido dos Reis (1852-1910): a navy vice-admiral and one of the organizers of the Republican Revolution of 5 October 1910, who commits suicide at dawn of October 5 1910 convinced of the failure of the revolution.

Siesta

by EviP

Of course, the visit to the castello Sao Jorge is a must. But tourists need a break, too! Especially, those that are not used to the hot sun and the hilly streets! After done with the castle sights and the amazing view of the city, why not taking some minutes' rest under the cool tree shadows? You can contemplate, organise the next of your stops, relax with some reading, or just take a nap! These guys did!

Azulejos

by travelmad478

Azulejos are the blue-glazed tiles, often painted as murals, that are plastered all over Lisbon. The paintings can range from slapdash to masterful to just plain weird, like this creature I found on the side of a building. Fittingly, there is a Museum of Azulejos (Rua Madre de Deus, 4) in the eastern part of the city. Unfortunately, I didn't have a chance to make it over there.

MIRADOUROS * VIEW POINTS 2

by LysDor

Another splendid view is from Bairro Alto over the city and the Castelo.

In order to get there take this tram-like Elevador da Gloria from Praca dos Restauradores.

FUN but don't expect a long journey it's an EXTRA-short trip, lol!
