Lisbon Walking Tour
Lisbon Walking Tour
This action-packed Lisbon tour will have you seeing and tasting your way around the city. Expect to see historic structures, eat local delicacies, and gain some interesting insight about Lisbon.
You'll meet your guide at the famous Restauradores Square, which is known for its obelisk that commemorates the country's independence from Spanish rule. You will stroll by the Rossio train station and visit the city's main square to discover how the area has changed since a major 1755 earthquake.
Afterward, you'll have a chance to see the beautiful Mouraria neighborhood, which is home to a cultural melting pot. Because of Portugal's maritime history, you'll see a lot of this influence throughout the city. All of this exploring is bound to make you hungry, so the Lisbon tour makes a stop at a tiny, off-the-beaten-path bakery for tasty pastries and delicious coffee. Learn about Fado (Lisbon's unique music) and walk past the birthplace of the legendary Maria Severa, Fado's first superstar who used to sing in Lisbon's taverns many years ago.
Soak up some Lisbon sightseeing highlights and history while visiting churches and taverns, then stop to taste Portuguese cheese and authentic, locally made marmalade.
Other highlights on this Lisbon tour include Bairro Alto, Bica, and Chiado. You'll stop off at a gorgeous viewpoint in Bairro Alto to take in the Lisbon panorama and have a refreshing drink. Board a ferry and journey to the picturesque Cacilhas, where Portuguese green wine and freshly-caught seafood await! Enjoy magnificent views from the South Bank before returning to your drop-off point. Your guide will be more than happy to provide you with recommendations regarding other points of interest. Don't wait to book your tour, as spots are filling up fast.
