The Carris offers two alternative touristic circuits, in double-deckers: The Tejo and the Orient Express circuits. They both start in Praça do Comércio and have an interpreter guide. The passengers may leave the bus whenever they want to visit any particular place they are interested in and, then, return to the circuit again. The Tejo circuit runs through downtown and the historical area of Belém, where you can see monuments such as Jerónimos Monastery, Belém Tower and Padrão dos Descobrimentos (stone monument of the Portuguese discoveries). The walk, with 14 stops, lasts about an hour and a half. The Orient Express, like the name indicates, leads you to the oriental area of the town, where the Parque das Nações, the Military Museum and the Glazed Tile Museum stand out.
