It's certainly worth the effort to head out east over to Parque das Nacoes for a flight on the telecabine, the cable car that runs above the river's edge at the city's former Expo 98 site. The gondolas glide lazily between two stations set either end of the park and take in some glorious views of the River Tagus and visitor attractions that include the Altice Arena, the Oceanarium and the striking Vasco da Gama tower. A one-way journey takes around 20 minutes to complete (the return ticket option saves you money and offers up a different there-and-back perspective). Each gondola easily accommodates a family and the experience adds a lofty dimension to any sojourn to this part of the city. For kids especially, the trip is a real adventure with the 360° views adding a suitable wow! factor to a day out by the river.
