Open Top April 25th Bridge Bus Tour
An open-top bus is one of the best ways to experience Portugal. This type of Portugal tour lets you experience 360-degree views so you get some great photos to cherish forever. On this specific Portugal bus tour, you'll visit two major attractions: the 25 de Abril Bridge and the Cristo Rei statue. Book your excursion today to learn all about these famous sights.
While onboard the bus, you'll make your way across the most famous bridge in Lisbon. The 25 de Abril Bridge is a suspension bridge that connects Lisbon to Almada, another municipality. Because of its color, it's often compared to San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge. If you're wondering why its name is a date (April 25), that's because the name commemorates the Carnation Revolution, a historic military coup in Portugal. Fun fact: The bridge is currently the 27th longest suspension bridge on the planet.
The other major site on this tour is just as impressive. The Cristo Rei (Christ the King) statue is a giant monument depicting the Christian savior; it was inspired by the Christ the Redeemer statue in Brazil. The Portuguese monument is roughly 92 feet high and stands atop a pedestal that's over 260 feet in height. It really is a sight to behold! You'll spend about an hour at this amazing monument. At the end of the tour, you'll be taken back to the port and leave with some great photos and happy memories.
