Full description
Lisbon is one of the oldest cities in Europe.  Legend has it that it was founded by Odysseus himself. Occupied by Phoenicians, Greeks and Romans, Lisbon was one of the most important trading place of the Roman era. Come and discover the traces of these ancient civilizations inside the Lisbon streets and buildings!

The tour begins with one of the best views of Lisbon (Portas do Sol view point), to introduce the development of Lisbon during the Roman era, before heading to the Roman theater. After Rome, it's the only theater that exists within the walls of a European capital.

Visit the eye-opening cloister of Lisbon Cathedral, where you'll find parts of the Roman streets of Lisbon, and then the tour passes through the Roman bath and Temple of Cibele.

For extra archaeological insight, visit the "Casa dos Bicos" and see part of the Roman Wall and Roman factories.

Finally the tour will lead you into the underground of Lisbon, where we will be able to discover archaeological structures, including upper classes houses, streets, "garum" factories, swimming pools and other artifacts.
