Exploring the secrets of Lisbon
Walking is usually the best way to explore a city in depth, and this is even more true in the case of Lisbon, with its uneven and irregular lay-out of the streets. On this tour, we will get to know Lisbon's oldest districts: Bairro Alto, Chiado and Alfama!
Discover Lisbon through some of its most amazing "miradores" (the viewpoints that the city is known for), get to know the colors and glittering façades on its buildings.
On this tour, we'll cover the heart of the city: Lisbon's oldest and more central districts, Bairro Alto, Chiado, Baixa and Alfama. We'll go where the locals go, while walking through its narrow streets and cozy squares built over more than 2000 years of History. During our walking tour, we'll stop for a tasting Ginjinha, Lisbon's typical cherry liqueur.
We'll cover the following places, but not necessarily under this order (depending on the starting point):
- Miradouro de S. Pedro de Alcântara;
- Bairro Alto and Chiado districts;
- Alfama district.
The tour can be customized.
