 Day 7 - Back to Lisbon

Start the day by saying goodbye to our trusted bicycles and hop on the 30 minutes transfer that will take you to Lagos train station.

In Lisbon you will stay in a central hotel, and the city is now your canvas to do whatever you feel like.

Lisbon is the capital of Portugal and the centre of a multifaceted region that appeals to different tastes and senses. In a city that has been receiving many and different cultures from far and wide distances over time, today you can still feel the village breath on every historical neighbourhood. You can walk through the grid of streets in Baixa Pombalina that opens to the Praça do Comércio and, following the river, get to know some of the most beautiful places in the city: the monumental area of Belém with World Heritage monuments, medieval neighbourhoods, and also areas with more recent or contemporary leisure facilities, such as the Parque das Nações and the Docks. 

Places to visit: Belém Tower, Jerónimos Monastery, Padrão do Descobrimentos, São Jorge Castle, Praça do Comércio, Chiado, Parque das Nações
