If Lisbon is your destination, try a Tagus River cruise or “mini cruise”. These cruises are about 4 hours in duration and take you down the Tagus River, the largest river on the Iberian Peninsula. Lisbon overlooks the Atlantic and the Tagus so a river cruise is an ideal means of viewing some of the city’s most impressive features. Cristo Rei, the huge statue of Christ, is best seen from the river and Belem Tower, erected to defend the city in the 1500’s, is also on the river. Mini cruise information can be found at most of Lisbon’s major hotels. Pick up and departure is scheduled from these same hotels and the cruises run upwards of about $40 per person.

gorgeous way to enjoy the sights of Lisbon. Choose from an afternoon
cruise for 2 (plus the skipper) or a 1-day cruise. Want to sail for a
longer period? Sailing cruises are also offered up to 7 days. Be as
involved as you wish to be or just sit back and relax. Sail on the
Atlantic or up the River Tagas, or both. Sailing lessons are offered if
you need to learn or just need a refresher on the basics. These cruises
run from April through October and information may be found at any
local hotel or tourist information center. Motorboat tours are also
