Highlights
  • Visit Lisbon's most iconic districts on a Sitway
  • Ride a Sitway through the beautiful historical streets of Alfama
  • Explore the multicultural district of Mouraria
Full description
Explore the hills of Lisbon from the comfort of your Sitway. Your friendly guide will show you how to safely ride the Sitway and teach you the rules of the road. Then, traversing through narrow laneways and courtyards, discover some of Europe's oldest neighborhoods. Discover the neighborhood of Alfama, known as the heart of Lisbon, a maze of winding alleys and small traditional courtyards. This area survived the great earthquake and fires of 1755 and is preserved beautifully.  Observe traditional Portuguese culture in these passageways: hear locals converse and Fado singers perform, smell the market sellers grilled sardines and admire the historic buildings. Capture some stunning panoramas on this tour as you visit some breathtaking viewing points.  You will also visit Mouraria (the Moorish quarter), which is one of the oldest parts of the city and the most multicultural. After the conquest of Lisbon in 1147, King Afonso Henriques allowed a small Moorish community to continue inhabiting the area and there are now 56 nations represented here.

What a fun experience! The sitways went up and down the bumpy cobblestone streets of Alfama and it took a lot of concentration to get the vehicle going. Katja was a fantastic guide, with so much knowledge and love for Lisbon that she brought us closer! Highly Recommended! And just something different! We definitely attracted attention with the sitways and were approached more often.
