Enjoying the city
Do you have a whole day to enjoy Lisbon? This tour captures the essence of the city but with a local like me to guide you around.
Lisbon is the city of light, a white and oceanic city surrounded by an emerald estuary. Thousands of years written in history and seen in every corner.
You will learn about the several people who inhabited Lisbon since the phoenicians to the moors, the fights of the Reconquest period, the voyages of exploration which catapulted Lisbon to a global empire, the earthquake and the new enlightened city afterwards.
Lisbon is ancient and modern alltoguether.
Start your tour at the Hotel and drive through the most important avenues of Lisbon. Stop at the viewing point of Park Eduard VII for a perspective of the city below. Continue to the downtown area, rebuilt after the earthquake of 1755 and pass through the oldest, and one of the most charming, quarters of the city, Alfama.
Free time at leisure in the centre for shopping and lunch.
Crossing the 25th of April bridge and heading towards south we will stop at the Christ the King monument to admire the view over Lisbon. Return to Lisbon and continue the city tour.
Visit the monumental quarter of Belem with its beautiful and interesting monuments dating back to the time of the 16th century discovery voyages. Visit the church of Saint Jerome (closed on mondays), photo stop at the Belem Tower and Monument to the Discoveries.
At the end of your tour, we will return to the Hotel. I drive a fully licensed mini van , with license given by the Tourism of Portugal.
