Lisbon: History, Stories and Lifestyle Walking Tour

1. 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.

Our guide Stefan was brilliant, very knowledgeable about the history of Portugal and specifically Lisbon. The tour included visiting a cafe for the local custard tarts which are very tasty, and a short trip on the number 28 tram, one of the historical trams that are seen around the city. The tour lasted around 4 hours, one of the longest and best historical tours we’ve ever done and was appreciated by all her took part.

Het was geweldig Stefano onze gids en historicus was enthousiast en had veel kennis. Veel geleerd over de stad het ontstaan en de oude wijken. Hij nam ruim de tijd had geen haast waardoor we 4 uur aan zijn lippen hingen. Aanrader voor iedereen die iets wil weten over deze mooie stad.

Our guide Beatrice was really good. She was clear, lively and entertaining. With a diverse international English-speaking group she looked after our needs very well considering the age range.

Guide Sandra was very helpful. I came a little late and she pulled me aside to catch me up on what I had missed.

Fabulous overview of Lisbon, perfect first day activity to get oriented to the city!!
