Born in Porto, I was a student at the University of Coimbra. I chose this hidden gem to be my home since 2006, and from that time I've been exploring its secrets.
It would be a pleasure to show you not only the town, but it's also surroundings. Stuck in a valley, between high mountains and the sea, Coimbra has a warm-evergreen climate. It was also the first capital of Portugal, the crib for the kings of the first dynasty and the place of a remarkable love story. I would be delighted to show you Coimbra along the time, since the Roman period (we can still see the Roman galleries), Moorish presence (the arch of entrance in the wall), Medieval times (its narrow streets), the Renascence (the Manuelino decorative style), during the Enlightenment Era (the University reformation), the Dictatorship (the "Bota-Abaixo" process) until today.
The tour can focus on the history and culture of Coimbra, or about any specific interest; such as art, architecture or food. It is up to you; all the tours can be tailormade.
Looking forward to hearing from you soon :)
