A rich cultural and historic tour with a twist

Join me for a walk through the historic neighbourhoods of the city while we unveil secrets and hidden secrets. Learn about the origins of Lisboa, how it evolved for 2000 years of history. Admire one of the most amazing monuments of the city that hasn't yet been discovered by all the city guides, with its collection of tiles, XII century ruins, incredible artwork and stunning views.
Stroll along some of the most picturesque maze-like streets of the city while getting to know more about the countries national song: fado. And of course, be blown away by the stunning viewpoints where we'll stop and take our time to soak all the city's beauty.


- We will admire Alfama with its unique character and history
- Visit the amazing S. Vicente de Fora Monastery, a gem of architecture and art
- Discover Graça with its stunning views and unexpected streets
- Get lost in the maze-like streets of Mouraria.

* Please note that S. Vicente de Fora Monastery closes on Monday so we can do the tour but it will not include the visit of the building.
