Full description
Your tour will start at the door of your hotel where you will meet with your guide. From here you will pass through the downtown area of Lisbon, known as Baixa. Whilst you travel, you will learn about the earthquake of 1755, and how that changed the look of the city forever. You will then see Rossio, the heart of the city center, before heading to the top of one of the city’s hills: Graça. Here you can enjoy the breathtaking views overlooking the city and the river.

You will then have the opportunity to explore the most authentic neighborhood of Lisbon: Alfama. You will fall in love with its narrow maze-like streets and feel like you are suddenly in a small village, away from the confusion of the big city.

It will then be time to visit another neighborhood: Belém. Here you will have the chance to see the impressive Jerónimos Monastery, a 16th-century construction that was once the home of the monks of the religious order of St. Jerome. It is now the resting place of Kings and Queens, but is also where one can find the tomb of Vasco da Gama, the navigator who reached India by sea in 1498. The other important tomb there belongs to the most important Portuguese poet: Luís de Camões. 

Following the Monastery it will be time to go to the Belém Tower, a fortress built by order of King Manuel I in order to protect the banks of Lisbon in the 16th century. Before returning to your hotel, you will cap off your tour by enjoying a delicious Belém pastry.
