Traffic from City Center to Sesimbra

How much of a challenge would it be for an American to drive in a car retal from within the city of Lisbon to Sesimbra? Thank you.

Where in the city center? Can you give an idea where you are going to rent your car? I suppose you don't intend to rent it and park it downtown till you leave.

I think that it can be complicated at Sesimbra, because of the narrow oneway streets, but also it depends on where you'll be staying.

IMHO the challenge would be you to drive a manual gearbox car. Automatic cars are very rare in this side of the pond, as you should know... lol...

Please inform us, where is your starting point in city center.

Sorry, It would be from the city center of Lisbon. If Sesimbra is narrow, one way streets with limited parking, we may rethink. Thank you.

Sesimbra is very nice but the streets in the centre are very narrow and most of these are one way.

I have actually been to Sesimbra several times but on more than half of those occasions I have not been able to park and had to leave without even getting out of the car.

heheh Sesimbra is really a nightmare to park, the town is nested between mountains and the sea.... unless you park the car at the harbour and even then it's hard
