Lisbon: History, Stories and Lifestyle Walking Tour

Discover one of Europe's most captivating and picturesque capitals on a guided walking tour. Built on a series of hills and offering panoramic views from countless spots, explore the city with a local guide who will make sure that you have an interesting and fun experience. Begin the tour in the 5-centuries-old Bairro Alto, where you’ll learn about the evolution of the city. After the earthquake of 1755 this space attracted families from the Baixa and Bairro districts, who began the process of renewal. Pass by the garden of São Pedro de Alcântara and enjoy views of Baixa and the south bank of the Tagus River. Visit the San Roque Church built by the Jesuits. Admire its austere façade, and the gilding, tiles, and paintings inside that make it a wonderful museum of Mannerist and Baroque styles. Head down the hill to the Carmo convent and church, fine examples of the city’s Gothic architecture. This is a site of historical importance as it was here that the Carnation Revolution began in 1974, putting an end to nearly 5 decades of dictatorship. A little further on, arrive at the Santa Justa elevator, an imposing monument built in the Gothic Revival style, that provides one of the best viewpoints in the city. See a number of attractions in Baixa, in the heart of the city. After a short break, take a ride on the tram, going up from the castle to the Portas do Sol. At the Portas do Sol, see the Monastery of São Vicente de Fora, the National Pantheon, and the Alfama district that spans several narrow streets to the River Tagus. Explore Alfama, one of the oldest and most traditional neighborhoods of Lisbon, known for its fado houses, and the popular festivals of saints, particularly St. Anthony. End the tour at Lisbon Cathedral, built in 1150, 3 years after the city was taken back from the Moors. Over time it has been subject to various architectural changes, becoming a mixture of different styles.

What people are saying about Carmo Convent

This is an absolutely fantastic way to see a lot of Lisbon in an organized and very entertaining way. Our guide, Pedro, was so funny and charming and full of so much information. I was traveling with my teenage daughter and she surprisingly enjoyed the tour as much as I did. Pedro sang to us and make hilarious jokes. We were so captivated the whole time with both the views of beautiful Lisbon and the history and facts told to us by Pedro. We really had a wonderful time.

Beatriz was a fantastic guide! I learned so much about the history of Portugal. She was so friendly, funny and adorable. Thank you for the amazing experience!

Perfect orientation for visitors on a tight schedule. Very interesting tour, historical perspective and friendly and informative guide. Most enjoyable.

David was very informative and insightful as a tour host. I was expecting the usual guide-book depth and he provided much more.

It’s important to visit a city with a local before venturing on your own. I chose this tour because I enjoy walking.
