We begin our tour in the Alfama district - Lisbon's oldest quarter. Here, the cobblestone streets will welcome you as old shopkeepers lean out their windows and breathe in the fresh sea air. Snap some photos of the quaint buildings before moving on to Rossio Square, the historic center of Lisbon.
I will lead you through the story of Lisbon, sharing with you the stories of its rise to fame in the 15th and 16th centuries as explorers set out on maritime conquests. This Golden Age of Portugal is reflected in the architecture and I will be here to answer any of your questions as we continue to explore.
We'll head towards the Jerónimos Monastery (closed Mondays), where you can have a look at the extravagant Manueline architectural style that came to define this city. You'll also experience their wonders in the Belém area, with a stop at the Belém Tower. This UNESCO site was the point of departure for the sailors destined for greatness, and you can explore the monument to the discoveries.
Regarding my tours, if you see a trip that you might like but it is not entirely to your taste you can contact me and we can work together to create the perfect programm for you. We can also include other cities and places than the ones that are part of the itinerary.
Enjoy a fascinating 4-hour adventure through the heart of Lisbon. Uncover its architectural secrets, marvel at its grand monuments built for its Golden Age explorers, and discover off-the-track neighborhoods with your licensed guide!
