It is quiet beautifull and you dont need to plan a trip to see it, it is possible to see it all along the seaside road on your way to Cascais, just stop for a moment and take it in.

We saw this bridge as we approach Lisbon from the air. I had been told it looks like the Golden Gate Bridge. It is impressive from the air, but not from the ground as we passed under it on the tram.

Huge 14 km bridge with fantastic views. Easiest way is to make sure it's part of any tour you take. Or take a taxi across and back. It's perfect for photos. Shore tours can take you.

Yes, you must pay tolls when headed north. The lanes are clearly marked. The lanes with a large green V are for speed passes called Via Verde, that pay automatically, so avoid those lanes.

As I remember you only pay as you enter Lisbon, not departing. It wasn’t vet expensive just a few Euros.

When you turn in your car inform the rental company of your mishap and they will solve it and charge you for it. If you don't do that you will have trouble in many places in Europe
