All children enjoy traveling on the old trams of Lisbon as they clatter along the tight and twisting streets.Lisbon,sightseeing,activities and things to see may be useful for you.The trams leave from Praça Comércio and head up to the castle or head west to the Belem district.Another transport option that entertains children is to catch the ferry that heads across the River Tagus.The ferry leaves from Terreiro de Parco.
Parque das Nações
The fourth area suitable and designed for children is Expo Park(Parque das Nações).The large area has numerous children friendly activities including;a cable car that runs the length of the park,interactive outdoor features and bike hire.Also in Expo Park is the Lisbon Oceanarium(see above)and the Pavilion of Knowledge.The Pavilion of Knowledge is an interactive science/technology museum which is good value(adult€7.00,child(6-17)€4.00)and has many exhibits to engage children.
For slightly older children visiting Lisbon is a trip to the cinema.Many other European countries dub the latest movies into their native tongue,but due to Portugal’s small size many movies just have subtitles leaving the original English sound track.Cartoons and movies for young children are often dubbed but most major releases are rarely dubbed,just ask before buying tickets.A popular Cinema is in the Vasco da Gama shopping centre on the edge of Expo Park.
