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

Great value and money well-spent when your group and guide match!

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the group tour of Sintra and Cascais! The great combination of excellent weather, knowledgeable/personable guide (Bruno) and compatible companions (7 of us including a respectful 13 year old teenager from the USA) made the 8 hours fly by. Definitely a memorable highlight of our 6 week European journey through 5 countries! Portugal is a hidden gem with many facets to discover....

Wonderful experience with a knowledgeable guide

Marissa, our guide was an engaging and passionate leader of our group of 10 persons. She knows the history, art and architecture of Lisbon. Our scheduled 3-hour walk was closer to 3 - 1/2 hours because she took her time with us and answered all of our questions as we walked through various parts of Lisbon. I absolutely give this a 5-star rating!

Great experience for first visit to Lisbon

Our guide, Pedro was awesome. Took us to various locations to sample food and drinks at not your typical tourist venues. He also recommended spots for shopping and places to check out on a trip to the Algarve. Highly recommend to folks looking for a bit of Portuguese culture and off the beaten path fun.

Fantastic tour with an amazing guide - well worth it!

This is a great tour to get introduced to Lisbon and Portugal’s impressive history. Our guide (Catarina) was very knowledgeable and had great stories about key historical events affecting the country and the city. We all thoroughly enjoyed the tour and highly recommend to anyone going to Lisbon

History lesson, sightseeing and art experience in one

This tour lets you see the city from a new perspective. We learned so much about street art, Lisbon and it's culture in just a few hours with our guide who was passionate, friendly and in touch with his audience. Loved that it was a small group. Would go again, if only to see what's new.
