Historical, modern and residential Lisbon: a complete tour of the city
This complete tour permits us to visit the city center, the historical neighborhoods but also to go a little bit beyond.
I love to show not only the 'classics':
- the old town of Alfama where the city was born, with its maze of streets, tiled façades and hidden corners;
- the downtown (Baixa), the part of the city that was rebuilt after the earthquake of 1755, vivid and commercial;
- the monumental district of Belém, from where our navigators sailed during the Golden Age of the Discoveries;
But also to pass through lovely residential quarters, such as Lapa and Estrela, with its lovely buildings, sometimes a discrete palace.
The modern district of Expo built to house the International Exhibition in 1998, with its modern and bold buildings.
We still have time for a photo stop by the statue of 'Christ the King' on the southern bank of the Tejo river, from where we can see the city on our feet!
Of course, for me, no tour would be complete without a pause for coffee and custard tart!
Liberty Avenue, Baixa, Chiado, Bairro Alto, Alfama, Graça, Expo (modern area), photoshop by the statue of Christ the King, Lapa, Estrela, Belém area. Stop for coffee and custard tart along the way.
Note: Foggy weather conditions may prevent us from having a nice view of Lisbon from the monument to Christ the King.
