Coach Hire & Bus Rentals For Every Occassion
Located on the Atlantic Ocean, Portugal’s capital has undergone many changes in recent years to give Lisbon a contemporary feel combined with an easy-going charm.
Its white limestone buildings, enchanting alleyways, the famous seven hills and Lisbon’s somewhat bohemian atmosphere draws visitors back time and time again to discover the secrets of this famous maritime city.
Over half a million people live within the city, which is Europe’s only capital on the Atlantic Coast.
If you’re planning to arrive in Lisbon by air, you’ll land at Portugal’s largest international airport, Aeroporta da Portela.
Located between Loures and Lisbon, it’s a short drive to the city itself, and one of the best ways to get there is by booking one of our airport transfers to Lisbon. It’s far quicker than taking the bus or train, and far more reliable than hailing a taxi outside the terminal.
Surrounded by seven hills, the city has plenty to keep you occupied, and if you want to see Lisbon from a height head up to one of the mirodouros or viewpoints to grab a bird’s eye view.
Whether you choose to take in the scenery from Portas do Sol, Da Nossa Senhora do Monte, or Castelo de São Jorge, you’ll find it’s the best way to see Lisbon in all its glory.
The main square, Rossio, is the place where all locals meet, making it the most perfect spot to mingle and experience authentic Lisbon life.
If you want to go shopping, you’ll find all the shops you need in Principe Real, which is just a five-minute stroll from Bairro Alto. For more upmarket shops, head to the elegant shopping area of Chiado.
Getting around the city is easy if you take Tram 28, which is one of the last traditional tramlines in the city. It’s ideal for exploring Old Town and getting to grips with public transport in a foreign city is sometimes an experience in itself so it’s definitely recommended that you ride the tram at least one.
On the other hand, if you want to make your way to the top of one of the hills, the funicular is the best way to do it. A ride in the Santa Justa Elevator is always a high point too.
And remember, RentABus is always on hand with competitively priced minibus rentals in Lisbon, should you want to avoid all the agro and enjoy a guided tour of the city in style.
To get a real taste of Lisbon, there are some places that you really should visit, starting with the Castelo de São Jorge. You can walk up via the old Alfama neighbourhood, catch a bus, or take a ride in one of our modern Lisbon minibuses.
The area of Belem is packed full of must-see-places from the Belem Tower to the UNESCO listed Mosteiro dos Jerónimos (which was commissioned to celebrate Vasco da Gama’s discovery of a sea route to India).
In this area, you’ll also find the Monument to the Discoveries, the Belem Cultural Centre with its permanent collection of contemporary art, and the Coach Museum, which is home to the world’s largest exhibition of coaches and royal vehicles.
Don’t miss out on seeing Ponte 25 de Abril. Designed by the same architect that built the San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge, it spans the Tagus River in style. And, if bridges are your thing, at 17.2 kilometres long, the Ponte Vasca da Gama is the longest bridge in Europe.
There’s no doubt about it; you can certainly have a memorable night out in Lisbon.
Whether you’re exploring the night time atmosphere at the Bairro Alto, with its plethora of traditional fado houses, trendy wine bars and other drinking hotspots, or tripping the light fantastic at one of the nightclubs or cocktail bars in Cais do Sodre’s ‘Pink Street’ or along the waterfront at Santos, you’re going to need to get back to your home or accommodation safely.
And that’s where RentABus.com can help as we offer reliable and safe minibus and coach rental in Lisbon to ensure that you and your friends make it home in one piece.
