Full description
Explore eastern Lisbon, home to some wonderful examples of modern architecture. One of them is Oriente Station, a landmark with the signature of Santiago Calatrava, while the Pritzker award-winning architect Alvaro Siza Vieira is the man behind the fantastic Pavilhão de Portugal known for its remarkable undulating roof. Many of the other constructions have an ocean theme (the twin towers São Gabriel and São Rafael resemble ships and are named after two of Vasco da Gama's vessels), and there is also one of the world's most spectacular aquariums nearby.  Everywhere you turn, you will glimpse the river looking like an ocean crossed by Europe's longest bridge, water volcanos erupting, wave-shaped benches, exotic greenery, public art by Portuguese and international artists, cable cars overlooking it all and an unashamedly avant-garde side of Lisbon contrasting with its old historic center. This is not a conventional Segway tour. This is the only sitway tour in town (Sit-Segway), and you can choose whatever suits you better. Rent a sitway to roll through town at your own pace or ask for one of your guided tours to meet the most wanted ex libris in town such as the Old Town (Alfama, the St Jorge Castle), Belem or Parque das Nações.  Start in one station and deliver into another, basically you can do whatever you want, its your vacation. Sitways is suitable for everyone, from children to adults. In 1 minute, you will be an expert. Come alone, with your family or group of friends, the local tour operator can roll up to 50 people at the same time. On this unique experience, you will be able to observe Lisbon monuments, see the amazing city lights, the Tagus River and its sunsets, viewpoints, parks, food and people as you roll seated and comfortable.
