...but a bit decayed and lifeless. Nice place to have a walk, though. Also, the cable car provides some nice views over the area as well

After the faded elegance of central Lisbon with its old buildings, Parque das Nacoes is an interesting contrast. Take the red line metro towards the airport and get off at Oriente, walk through a shopping centre that is like Bluewater on steroids, and there you are ! Wide open spaces and modern architecture abound. Yes it is a bit of... More

Normally we like to visit historical sites, see nice old architecture, etc. We were returning from Queliz where we visited king’s summer palace and went from Queliz by train all the way to Oriente station. The site was completely opposite to what we saw in Queliz but it was quite impressive and it was pleasant to there spent couple of... More

Take the metro to Oriente, then walk through the shopping centre (not bad !) to the parque. To be honest not a lot there during the day, take a trip on the cable car - approx 4 euro's one way. There's a concert venue and restaurants etc but not much else unless you want to pay a fair amount to... More

The site of the 1998 Lisbon World’s Fair transformed what was, apparently a run-down industrial area by the waterfront on the edge of the city. I’m glad they used the opportunity to redevelop the huge area. It feels fresh and vibrant and clearly development is going on all the time. When we visited, March 2014, a 5* hotel had opened... More

Some people (my parents included) love this part of town but I'm really not a fan. Overpriced restaurants, a busy shopping mall, and not much else. I'd say the only redeeming feature is being able to see the famous Vasco da Gama bridge, the longest in Europe. Of course there's the science museum and aquarium and a few kiddie parks,... More

We had a wonderful afternoon here, taking in the Vasco de Gama Tower and Bridge and also people watching whilst enjoying a cool Sangria at the Orizon restaurant on the corner. You have to come here at least once to see the modern buildings, shopping centre and the fabulous Oriente train station.

now, to go to Lisbon and not see Parque das Naçoes is the same like usual we say:to go to Rome and not to see the Pope.But take time to walk all the Parque. You can rent a bike or triciclo

Easy to get here using the metro. Far more modern than downtown Lisbon. Great place to shop as it was the huge Vasco da Gama shopping centre. It also contains the Oceanarium which is great spot and we also did the cable car trip here too.
