Discover Lisbon and surrounding area by car
With access to four wheels, you will have the freedom and flexibility to tour Lisbon and beyond at your leisure. There’s so much to see and do in this hilly capital city with the historic district of Alfama being a great place to start your adventure. Here, you will find notable attractions such as the Museu do Fado, the church of Santa Engrácia, Sé – the city’s Romanesque church with its remarkable twin castellated bell towers – and the Museu de Artes Decorativas.
Continue up the hill from São Vicente de Fora to Alfama’s lofty neighbour, Graça, or take a ten minute drive to the downtown district of Baixa where you’ll find a medley of wonderful shopping arcades, tree-lined boulevards and meeting points such as Rossio Square which has been an exciting cultural hub since the Middle Ages.
While Lisbon may be a bustling capital packed with interesting sites, you may wish to explore far and wide with a trip over the 25 de Abril Bridge taking you to the quaint city of Almada. A drive along the seafront is also worth your time with the Estoril-Cascais coastline to the west of Lisbon offering a host of family-friendly beaches.
Should you wish to visit other Portuguese cities, you will find Amadora to the north-west with central Coimbra being just over a two hour drive away. You could even continue north along the coast to the picturesque coastal city of Porto renowned for its grand bridges and wine production.
Driving in Lisbon
Throughout Portugal, you must drive on the right hand side of the road and overtake on the left. The capital of Lisbon is particularly 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.
