Discover Lisbon Gare Do Oriente Railway and surroundings by car
As a gateway to the bustling capital of Lisbon and the rest of Portugal, Lisbon Gare Do Oriente Railway is a convenient place to pick up a car rental. With easy access to four wheels you’ll be geared up to explore the striking landscape of the local area with the imposing São Jorge Castle dominating the city’s skyline and the quaint pastel-coloured buildings decorating the Alfama District.
Another unforgettable and hard to miss landmark in the region is the Torre de Belém which soars high above the seafront of the Lisbon quays. Keeping watch over the Tagus Estuary, the tower dates back to the 16th century and has become one of Portugal’s top places of interest.
If a holiday to you is more about lying on the beach than sightseeing – you won’t be disappointed by the golden sands and blue seas. Lisbon’s Cascais-Estoril coastline is particularly popular as is the quaint fishing town of Cascais and Estoril which combines great beaches with a traditional atmosphere.
With the rattling tramlines, tempting eateries and restaurant-lined marina all adding to the charm of Portugal’s capital, it’s easy to see why this is such a popular city to visit. That said, there are many other enchanting places to explore nearby and with a hire car you’ll be well-placed to take a trip over the Ponte 25 de Abril suspension Bridge connecting Lisbon with Almada. You may also decide to drive north to visit the coastal city of Porto or head west to the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park.
Driving in Lisbon
When driving in Lisbon and throughout the rest of Portugal you must stay on the right and overtake on the left. Unfortunately, Lisbon has a reputation for being one of the trickiest cities in Europe to drive in due to its network of narrow roads. That said; a hire car will give you freedom and flexibility to explore at your leisure, so take your time and try to embrace the frustrating traffic management systems which often lead to congestion.
Parking in the centre of Lisbon can be a challenge, particular in the districts of Baixa, Chiado and Alfama. For this reason it’s a good idea to leave your car on the outskirts of the city and make use of the tram services which operate daily.
