Today, National Geographic Explorer docked in Lisbon, presenting our explorers with a diverse array of captivating destinations: Belem, Sintra, Alfama, and the Cathedral. Some adventurers embraced independent exploration, curating their own unique experiences. Among the standout options was a fleet of tuk tuks, offering a fun and innovative way to traverse the city.

Our itinerary included a visit to Lisbon Cathedral and several viewpoints that bestowed upon us breathtaking panoramas of the cityscape. As we bid Lisbon farewell, the soul-stirring melodies of traditional Fado music, performed by Francisco Moreira, serenaded us, infusing our day with the enchanting essence of local culture. The experience was deeply enriching, immersed in Lisbon's storied heritage and cherished traditions. From the bustling streets of Alfama to the grandeur of Lisbon Cathedral, each moment offered a glimpse into the city's vibrant tapestry of history and charm.
