  • 24 hours

The Lisbon Tourist Sightseeing Bus is the best way to explore the city's highlights in comfort. The double-decker open-top bus offers panoramic views over the Portuguese capital, and you can hop on and hop off at any of its many stops.

Lisbon Tourist Bus Routes & Stops

The Lisbon Tourist Sightseeing Bus has three different routes to choose from with numerous stops along the way, allowing you to hop on and hop off whenever you'd like so you can tailor your trip and explore the city at your own pace. Audioguides offered in English and other languages mean you won't miss any information about the iconic monuments that you'll pass by.

The Panoramic Tour of Lisbon lasts 1 hour and 40 minutes and takes you to see the most important monuments in the Portuguese capital, including some found outside of the historic centre, like the Oceanário and the Hotel Myriad. What's more, you'll see emblematic sites like Praça da Figueira, the National Tile Musuem and Praça do Comércio.

If you'd prefer to see Lisbon from a different perspective, the Tagus Riverbank Tour, which also lasts an hour and 40 minutes, travels to the most picturesque sites along the banks of the river which crosses the Iberian Peninsula. Visit Eduardo VII Park, the Monument to the Discoveries and the Cais do Sodré District.

Finally, the Belém Tour takes you on a 50 minute route around one of Portugal's most famous neighbourhoods. Belém is home to some of Lisbon's most iconic landmarks, like the Belém Tower and the Jerónimos Monastery.
