We didn't actually get ashore in 2000 because we were diverted there to have an injured lady airlifted off!
2002 was the first time we got a good look at the City and what a revelation it was! Went on a guided coach tour, loved it and went on the open top bus on a subsequent visit. Holds up well with any European Capital (that we've seen) and would be worth an extended break (if only we had the time). In 2014 went on a different open top bus tour excellent! 2015, pouring with rain! Stayed on the ship. 2017, lovely and sunny (but not too hot) so stayed on board and lazed on our terrace.

2018 Went in on the shuttle bus in the morning and had a walk to Rossio Square, Figueira Square, down through the Triumphal Arch and back along the sea road to the Ship.

Statue of King John I (left) and King Pedro IV in front of the Theatre (cyclist tours were legion!)

King Jose in 2007 - alright, I like this statue!
