We are two seniors and will be in Lisbon for one day from a cruise in October and our ship will dock at Alcantara from 8am to 5pm. Our plan is to get the no.15 tram to the Belem district and visit the Belem Tower (which we may not actually go into), Monument of the Discoveries, Jeronimos Monastery, Pasteis de Belem (yum!) and the National Coach Museum. If there is time, we would also like to make our way to Praca Commercio in the hope of being able to get the no.28 tram for a scenic ride before returning to the ship.
We have three questions and would appreciate any help you can give us please -
1) Will we have sufficient time to do all that we hope as listed above?
2) Bearing in mind that we are seniors and I believe therefore entitled to some admission discount, would it be worth us purchasing a Lisboa card and, if so, where can we get one?
3) Exactly where in Praca Commercio can we get a no.28 tram please?
We want to make the most of our short visit to Lisbon (and our first visit to Portugal too), so any help, tips, advice, suggestions, etc, will be much appreciated.
