This part of Lisbon was renovated ffor the Expo 2000. It was a dump before but after..what a transformation. It's a dynamic area with both offices, luxury apartments, restaurants, concert arenas. The only downside like most of Lisbon is the traffic.

Big area with a lot of walking, so plan ahead what you want to see. We arrived by metro at the "Oriente" train station, went through the "Vasco da Gama" shopping mall, and walked to the oceanarium (worth a visit), did one ride with the cable car (quite high over the water), and walked back to the station (many closed...

good to see the modern side of Lisbon, but was disappointed with the cable car, as it was a very hot day, we only managed the single journey, no air low, no window opened, incredibly claustrophobic

You have to walk through some of the park to get from the metro station to the Aquarium, if you are expecting any aspect of green in this park there is none. White concrete is the order of the day with with graffiti sprayed here and there. You can get a cable from one bit of the concrete expanse to... More

This park is a wast and huge. You van wal and walk and never get there but on the way its things to see and to do. Nice place to go on a sunday when everything else is closed down. Here you have the oceanario, cabble car, shopping mall, restaurants, fair for kids or just benches to relax on.

You notice immediately that Parque Das Nacoes is the area for the wealthy lisboan, with parks that stretches for miles and beautiful architecture, which keeps you engaged for hours as you walk up and down the pier. The restaurants though are a bit pricy, probably due to the large number of tourist who go here. Definently worth a trip!

This area was built for Expo in 1998! It's full of modern buildings and former pavilions from the expo.. The largest aquarium in Europe is located here! There's also many great restaurants & clubs in the area! Only worth seeing if you wish to see the more so modern side of Lisbon.

We took the short train ride from central Lisbon up to this park, primarily because it looked to have some very interesting photographic opportunities......but there is much more. After arriving at the impressive station & walking through the shopping centre we emerged into the park. It took the best part of half a day to wander around the park, strolling... More
