1. Shore Excursion: Lisbon and Fátima
Get all the highlights of beautiful Lisbon on this shore excursion. This 6-hour cruise will take you first to Fátima to visit the sanctuary. This is one of the most important Christian sites in the world and has 5 million visitors per year. Explore the Sanctuary and make sure you see the Apparitions Chapel, the Basilica, the Holy Trinidad Church, Candles Wall, and Holy Water. There will be enough time to attend a Mass if you choose, and visit several of the souvenir shops. The tour returns to Lisbon where you can begin your exploration of the city. Starting at the Avenue of Liberdade, and the Baixa district, we will stop at Sé Cathedral and go to the lookout of Graca for the wonderful views. Continuing on, we will stop by the Monastery of Saint Vincente, the National Pantheon, and the Chiado and Estrela main streets. Our in-depth exploration of Lisbon takes you past all its most beautiful and historic spots and you’ll have many opportunities to take beautiful pictures. The last stop on the tour is the Bélem district. We will stop by several important monuments, the Monastery of Jeronimos, the Bélem Tower and the Discovery Monument. A wonderful chance to get to see multiple sites and views of the city, this tour takes over both land and water for a distinctly Portuguese experience.
