Belém by the Riverside Segway Tour
- Duration: 3 Hours
- Location: Lisboa, Lisboa
A wonderful tour to Belém where you’ll find an ensemble of iconic architecture and monuments related to the Age of Discovery.
We’ve prepared a fascinating circuit that will feature several historic monuments in this emblematic area of Lisbon. The whole way to Belém will be along the riverside, which means you may expect an extremely pleasant journey full of light, beautiful landscapes and good vibes.
Whoever is interested in history and knows about the importance of the Portuguese Discoveries will fall in love with Belém, where everything is magnanimous, historical and sacred. It was from there that many of the great Portuguese explorers embarked on their dangerous and ambitious voyages turning Portugal into the very first global empire.
Three of the main highlights of this tour will be the Belém Tower, the Monument to the Discoveries and the Jerónimos Monastery (however due to Belém urban disposition, you will only be able to spot the Monastery from across the road!). But on the way to the “Golden Era” you’ll find other elements of great interest, such as the 25th of April bridge (always compared to the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco), the Docks (marina), the Lx Factory, the Architecture and Technology Museum and the Electricity Museum.
To finish this Sailor promenade there’s a crucial ritual that you can´t miss: tasting the famous Portuguese custard tart. As soon as you taste it you’ll understand the reasons for the never-ending queues at the door.
