What To Expect
Meet an informative, local guide at historic Restauradores Square where a striking obelisk commemorates the restoration of Portugal's independence back in 1640, after decades of Spanish rule.
Walk past the beautiful gothic-style Rossio train station, then visit Rossio (Lisbon's Main Square) and find out how much the city has changed since the devastating earthquake of 1755.
Continue on to explore the magnetic neighbourhood of Mouraria - a melting pot of cultures from far and wide, and a place you wont see on other Lisbon tours! Portugal's seafaring past has allowed many different cultural influences to contribute to the richness of modern-day Lisbon. Pass small churches, mosques and shops selling goods from far-flung places.
Learn about Fado (Lisbon's unique music) and walk past the birthplace of the legendary Maria Severa, Fado's first superstar who used to sing in Lisbon's taverns many years ago. Our Lisbon tour then satisfies your appetite by stopping at a small, hidden bakery where traditional pastries and espresso coffee will provide a tasty pick-me-up and another insight into the local way of life.
Soak up some Lisbon sightseeing highlights and history while visiting churches and taverns then stop to taste Portuguese cheese and authentic, locally made marmalade. Explore the highlights of the cultural and bohemian districts of Chiado, Bairro Alto and Bica.
Afterwards, take a short trip to the Tagus River, the subject of many Portuguese songs and poems. Board a ferry for a 20-minute journey to Mouraria, Bairro Alto, Chiado, Cais do Sodré and the picturesque Cacilhas, where Portuguese green wine and freshly-caught seafood awaits! Enjoy magnificent views from the South Bank then return to Lisbon.
