City Sightseeing Tour

Aloha Everyone,

There are a several choices for city sightseeing tours. To get an overview of Lisbon, J.J. and I selected Hop On Hop Off Green Line. We paid €15 each or US$16.80 to use a mini bus with 15 stops.  

Lisbon is built on hills. Its terrain reminds us of Francisco. Cobblestones lined narrow hilly streets do not translate to a comfortable ride. Our driver was also what J.J. kindly referred to as “a wannabe race car driver.” She would speed up the slopes then suddenly stepped on the brakes. Although I did not walk an extraordinary amount of steps today, my iPhone count is giving me 20 floors :-) from all the shaking.

After three weeks of visiting other destinations, the two of us will be returning to Lisbon to the same hotel for a week. Today’s tour was to give us a visual overview and familiarity with the city. Please enjoy.

Aloha -- Cathi
