Exploring Lisbon by foot and traditional public transportation

Do you like walking and think it is the best way for you to know a city? Then come with me in order to discover Lisbon's wonderful sightseeing points, traditional neiboorhoods, winding streets and cultural heritage!
We will start our tour at Rossio's Square and explore the downtown. After that we will head up to Chiado, where we will discover this lively district that has once been the hotspot for writers and intellectuals. We will enjoy the wonderful view over the castle from Santa Justa elevator and then head down to the oldest hill of the city - here we can choose whether to walk down the streets of Alfama or the streets of Mouraria.
During the tour we will have a comfort stop and have a traditional custard tart and a coffee in a cafe.
Comfortable shoes are needed! Our pavements can be quite tricky and slippery.
This tour can be customized into a full day tour and include Belém district in the afternoon. Please message me for more info.
