Downtown and Belém area
If you can see as much as possible of Lisbon in one day this is the tour.
As the best way to visit the city is walking, let's walk! So we will start exploring the old areas of Lisbon, Chiado, Alfama and the city center.
After a break to eat something we will continue to the monumental district: Belém. As is far from the city center we will take a cab or public transportation.
This is the area where we will talk about "Portuguese Discoveries", the gold period of Portugal's history, and see remarkable monuments such as the Belém Tower and the Jeronimos Monastery (close on mondays), both world heritage sites.
We will have also the opportunity to visit the famous "Pastelaria de Belém", where we Portuguese insist, we find the best custard tart in Portugal! (our local sweet).
Are you ready? :)
We will explore walking the old neighborhoods of Lisbon, as Chiado, Baixa and Alfama. After that we will take a taxi to Belém Tower and from there explore walking the Belém area, including the Jeronimo Monastery.

Silvia was brilliant. We asked her to find historic connections about the conquest by the Portuguese of our home port Malacca and she didnt disappoint. She did her homework and found a number of sites for us to visit including checking with local bookshops and historians. We had a great day, got what we were looking for and learnt a lot about her town of Lisbon. Very passionate, knowledgable and definitely someone to book for a tour here. Highly recommended.
