Top 5 things to do on a Lisbon walking tour

Lisbon's colorful history is still evident in its grand monuments and maze of streets that veer between the quaint and rustic. Here are the best places to go on any city walking tour.

Bairro Alto

Bairro Alto

The "Upper Neighborhood" was formed in the 16th century and, with its picturesque streets and elegant houses overlooking the rest of the city, remains its most charming district.

Belém Tower

Belém Tower

An icon of Portugal's "Age of Discovery," this 16th century coastal tower formed both the keystone of Lisbon's maritime defense system and a ceremonial gateway for important visitors.

Lisbon Cathedral

Lisbon Cathedral

Construction on Lisbon's oldest church began in 1147, but once they got started they found it hard to stop! Today the cathedral is a mix of architectural styles added through ages.

Alfama

Alfama

Lisbon's oldest district survived the great earthquake of 1755, and so retains much of its Moorish fishing-village charm. Come back at night to enjoy the city's best bars!

Rossio Square

Rossio Square

Lisbon's historic main square has long been the center of public life, hosting everything from celebrations to executions. It's also home to the D. Maria II National Theater.

Planning Your Visit

How do the free tours work?

Free walking tours are a great way to see Lisbon on a tight budget, and are often surprisingly good! Don't forget, however, that your guide is still trying to make a living. Bring some cash with you in case they deserve a good tip.

What about food tours?

Seen Lisbon's sights and ready to taste its delights? Food tours provide a popular way of seeing the city from a local's perspective, taking in a choice of favorite restaurants, food markets, and top-notch wine stores. Or if you're not done with the sightseeing yet, you can even choose a tour that offers both!

What people are saying about Lisbon

Wonderful day on Private Tour to Sintra & Cascais

We spent a full day with Francisco on a tour from Lisbon to Sintra, Cascais & Estoril. Because we wanted to see 3 palaces - Pena, Regaleiro and Moors - along with Hells Mouth & Cabo da Roca, Francisco picked us up at 8:30AM from our hotel. He knew the best way to plan our day in order to see all we wanted, even though this was an ambitious schedule. Fransicso was an excellent driver, and knew the tricks to find parking at each location. Because of this we had time to visit all the places we wanted. His advice for each visit and knowledge of all the locations made the day so much more interesting than if we had visited alone. Fransisco was full of information on Portugal, history and current events and answered all our questions. On top of that, he was such a really nice person, very considerate and respectful. We couldn't have enjoyed the day more. So glad he was our guide. It was a long and busy day, but worth it and it remains one of the highlights of our trip to Porfugal.

A special tour offered by a special tour guide, Terrific!

We didn’t know what to expect but what we got was a stellar walking tour through parts of Porto which featured excellent vistas, interesting history provided by our absolutely terrific and knowledgeable guide, Ciara, and a visit to the Livraria Lello, the bookstore space which was apparently a favorite location for JK Rowling who taught English in Porto in the early 1990s when she was writing the first book of Harry Potter—and you can see the influence of the bookstore! Great tour by a great guide!

Very enthusiastic guide and great tour overall

The tour was really fun, our guide was very enthusiastic and had some really good information, especially about the Pena palace in Sintra. He also answered all of our questions and was clearly passionate about his job and his region. I do feel it was a little bit rushed at times, for instance it would have been nice if we had some more time at Cabo de Roca and Cascais, basically they were photo stops. Overall I would suggest this tour to anyone looking for a great day trip from Lisbon.

Amazing experience with an excellent guide!

Alex was a great guide! Her approach is very personable. She spent enough time with us To explain the history behind all of the places we got to see without being overbearing. We had enough time on our own to explore and enjoy the sights. Her general knowledge of the area was great and insightful. Looking forward to doing more tours with her!

Excellent small group tour with great guide

A well-planned and informative tour led by an excellent guide, Andre who was friendly, accommodating and clearly very knowledgeable about the local history. Do well organised that we avoided the crazy queues in Pena Palace. Lovely small group which was great. Highly recommend.
