While in Lisboa, don't miss Costa Caporica - the beach across the Tejo.
This area can be reached by ferry or the Bridge. As long as you're across
you might make time to visit the beautiful statue of Jesus and climb the
inside. You can't miss it as it looks across the Tejo to Lisboa and can
be seen from most anywhere. One other must is the Panarama at the
pinnacle of the Monsanto, sometimes easily overlooked - not the Park,
but the experience. Attending a movie in Lisboa is quite an experience
as well. It will take you back over the years as there are beautifully
uniformed ushers that show you to your assigned seat. There is an
intermission in every screening with a beautiful bar where one might
purchase liquor as well as the favored espresso. The movies from
America are in English with Portuguese subtitles - very interesting
experience. I sat through the entire movie with a smile on my face
reflecting on days gone by. I also took a Greyline Bus tour to Setubal
for the day and was not disappointed. The winery there is wonderful as
is the day trip with several stops both coming and going. The traffic in
Lisboa is unbelievable - expect jams.
I hope I have suggested some not so common stops in the City, assuming, of course, that you are planning on taking the much publicized and popular ones.
I hope you have a great trip.
