Full description
On this tour, discover Lisbon on a Sitway at night. At night, this part of the city has another spirit of living that you will not be able to find during the day. Alfama wakes up at night when some of the city's most authentic cafés and restaurants open their doors to serve delicious traditional cuisine. When you cross the labyrinthine streets, hear Fado coming from the restaurants and also from the local houses. 

The area is full of historic monuments, that all light up at night. Spread over the southeastern slope of the hill crowned by Castelo de São Jorge, the picturesque neighborhood is composed of a maze of narrow streets, winding alleyways and steep flights of steps.

Besides the castle, you will find several historic 17th-century churches in the vicinity, as well as the city's impressive cathedral. In the night lights, all these monuments will look mystically bigger. Some of the best views in Lisbon are from lofty squares such as the Miradouro Largo das Portas do Sol - once the entrance gates to the old city. From here, marvel at the illuminated Alfama and also see the river and the south bank with its lights reflected on the river.
