Historical Boat Tour from Lisbon
From US$52.05
Cruise the Tagus River aboard a classic wooden sailing yacht for great views of Lisbon’s historic waterfront. Enjoy sparkling wine and snacks as you pass colorful neighborhoods and key landmarks that include Christ the King, the Padrao dos Descobrimentos, and Jeronimos Monastery and the Belem Tower, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the gorgeous Belem district.
What to Expect
Board a classic wooden yacht at a central location in Lisbon. Then, hoist sails or cruise to the historic neighborhood of Belem, home to some of Lisbon’s most beloved landmarks.
Spot the Presidential Palace; Belem’s monuments to Portuguese explorers; and the Museum of Art, Architecture, and Technology. Then, admire the spires of the UNESCO-listed Jeronimos Monastery from the water.
Wine and snacks are served throughout your time on the Tagus River, and an onboard guide points out each place you pass, sharing stories that bring the landmarks to life. The cruise continues all the way to Ribeira das Naus, a scenic waterfront promenade, and you’ll have views of Commerce Square and Alfama before returning to port.
