Discover Lisbon and surroundings by car
What better way to start your tour of Portugal than in Baixa, or downtown Lisbon? While Rossio Square is pulsing with life both day and night, make your way to Municipal Square if you want to see the sensational City Hall which dominates Lisbon’s skyline.
Love to shop? Then don’t miss a stroll along Rua Augusta – Baixa’s main shopping district – or head to the tree-lined Avenida de Liberdade for a boutique retail experience. The Eduardo Park is also a great place for a picnic and if you’ve come to Lisbon for the architecture; don’t miss the 6th-century Jerónimos Monastery which has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
As well as discovering downtown Lisbon, you may also want to put your hire car to the test by venturing further afield with a trip to Almada being worth your time. To get to this beautiful city you’ll need to drive over the domineering 25 de Abril Bridge which is itself one of Portugal’s most-remarkable attractions. With access to four wheels, how about also touring the Lisbon coast or making your way north to Coimbra – a riverside city in the centre of Portugal?
Driving in Lisbon
Throughout Lisbon and the rest of Portugal, you must drive on the right hand side of the road and overtake on the left. The region is very popular, so be sure to take extra care as you navigate unfamiliar routes. As you drive over the impressive 25 de Abril Bridge, pay attention to traffic as well as admiring the views. Be aware that this is a toll road and cars will be charged €1.45.
As Lisbon is an old city with a network of narrow streets, parking can be difficult – especially in the districts of Baixa, Chiado and Alfama. With this in mind, you are advised to park in one of the underground (Estacionamento Subterraneo) car parks.
