Lisbon, the capital of Portugal, is an ancient and gracious city that is well worth taking the time to explore. This short walk makes an excellent complement to a half-day tour round the city sites, or can easily take most of a day if you choose to explore these two attractive resorts and spend some time lazing on one of the sandy beaches, perhaps with lunch at one of the several restaurants passed along the way. Cascais, once a fishing village and now a seaside resort, is the terminus of a railway line from Lisbon and is one end of a paved path that hugs the coastline and leads past sophisticated Estoril back towards Lisbon. It is provided with various exercise stations – just the thing if you wish to work off more of the shipboard calories. This is a very easy walk indeed, entirely on a well-constructed path. The only real ascent is some steps up the low cliffs to find the station for the return train. The train ride is itself interesting, with good views of the April 25 Bridge across the River Tagus, Navigators' Monument and Christ the Redeemer statue built on a bluff overlooking the river.
