We will visit the Jeronimos Monastery, one of the most significant buildings in Portugal, Belém Tower, Monument to the Discoveries and will learn a lot about this world capital.

After crossing the bridge over the river Tagus, the " Golden Gate" of Europe, we will enjoy the breathtaking view to Lisbon from the Statue of Christ.

After a short panoramic tour through some historical quarters of Lisbon, we will visit Alfama, Lisbon's oldest quarter.

Visit to the heart of the historical center of Lisbon-Rossio Square- allows you to discover some of the romantic sides of our capital or choose the visit to some view points(belvederes) of Lisbon.

We will also drive to the famous Statue of Christ- Cristo Rei- opposite of Lisbon.
(You also have the possibility to use the lift to go up to the Statue upon payment).

In the famous Belém quarter we will visit the Jerónimos Monastery a World Heritage Monument (closed on Monday) and make a brief stop at the Belém Tower- world heritage by UNESCO (Torre de Belém), point of departure of some of the Portuguese maritime explorations, such as on the Monument to the Discoveries (Padrão dos Descobrimentos), built to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the 'death' of Prince Henry the Navigator.

A Recent Review of this tour

Paul is a gem. We learned so much from him about Lisbon and the surrounding areas. When I mentioned that I wanted to eat Piri Piri, he found an excellent restaurant. You can't go wrong booking with Paul.
