Get to know Parque das Nações, the 'New Lisbon', in a guided tour suiting your travel budget. This is the most recent area of the city with amazing contemporary architecture and urban art works and built for Expo'98 being an homage to the most glorious era of Portuguese history. Though hard to spot by the common tourist and even by locals, the entire area is inspired by the Age of Discovery. It is a surprise to many to realize how contemporary architecture, urban planning and urban art came together to praise all those Portuguese kings, sailors and explorers and their conquests and achievements over the 15th and 16th centuries.
All of those landmarks were carefully planned from scratch with the objective of hosting the biggest event ever held in Portugal: the EXPO’98. With that edition proving to be one of the most successful in the World, a completely new and different centrality of the city emerged by the Tagus River, providing locals and visitors lots of entertainment, leisure and cultural areas.
This activity includes:
- Lisbon Oceanarium
- Oriente Station
- Pavilion of Portugal
- Vasco da Gama Tower
- Vasco da Gama Bridge
- Refinery Tower
- Age of Discovery and much more!
