If you have little time in Lisbon but you would like to explore the main highlights of the city, this is the perfect tour for you!
Beeing Portuguese and a educated guide this tour allows me to showcase the most important highlights of Lisbon in my very special way combining knowledge and feeling for Lisbon.
Enjoy with me this fascinating 4-hour adventure through the heart of Lisbon visiting Lisbon historical quarter Baixa (downtown), Estrela quarter and the basilica. Uncover its architectural secrets, marvel at its grand monuments built for its Golden Age explorers, like the Jeronimos Monastery, Belém Tower and the Monument to the Discoveries.
Discover some off-the-track neighborhoods in the oldest neighborhood Alfama with me as your licensed guide!
We begin our tour at Lisbon's oldest quarter. Here, the cobblestone streets will welcome you as old shopkeepers lean out their windows and breathe in the fresh sea air. Snap some photos of the quaint buildings before moving on to Rossio Square, the historic center of Lisbon.
I will share with you the stories of its rise to fame in the 15th and 16th centuries as explorers set out on maritime conquests. This Golden Age of Portugal is reflected in the architecture and I will be here to answer any questions as we continue to explore.
We'll head towards the Jerónimos Monastery (closed Mondays), where you can have a look at the extravagant Manueline architectural style that came to define this city. You'll also experience their wonders in the Belém area, with a stop at the Belém Tower and Monument to the Discoveries.
The neighborhood Estrela is also one of our visits.
