Lisbon: Downtown Neighborhood Guided Walking Tour

5. Lisbon: Downtown Neighborhood Guided Walking Tour

Learn about the history of Portugal as you explore the neighborhoods of Alfama in Lisbon. Alfama is not only one of the oldest and most picturesque districts in Lisbon, but also was one of the only neighbourhoods, which was not destroyed in the 1755 earthquake. And so, the city still has kept its quaint familial charm. In fact, the moniker of this neighbourhood comes from the Arabic ‘Al-hamma’ meaning ‘hot fountains’ or ‘baths’. Decorated in beautiful ‘azulejos’, the steep winding alleys of this neighbourhood give way to breath-taking views of a sea of terracotta roofs and the Tagus River. The aromas of traditional Portuguese cuisine, the echoes of Fado tunes, and the elderly Portuguese locals chattering, all make this neighbourhood one of the most authentic in Lisbon! Our tour begins in Rossio and passes some key areas before heading into the heart of Alfama where you will also make a stop at the Miradouro Portas do Sol, before ending the tour at the cathedral.

The tuk tuk is an efficient way to orient to Lisbon & see the city highlights. Ours was very clean without all the decor/flowers etc that adorned many of the tuk tuks we saw which I imagine would obstruct the passenger view. Our driver Luciano was very patient with our group, he drove safely, & he showed us many points of interest & answered all our questions. His English is impeccable. He obviously has a passion for history & greatly added to our experience.

This was my fist Tasting tour, & it has been incredibly interesting & tasty :) . Luciana my guide was great , and made a good selection of places. I highly recommend her for your future tour in Lisbon
