Overview

We start at the Alfama, the oldest part of Lisbon where the Castle is situated. Your guide to Lisbon will tell you how the Portuguese took the castle from the Moors and turned it into a royal palace for over 400 years.

Our tour of Lisbon, which will take you about 5 or 6 hours, depending on how many breaks you take, will then guide you to one of the best views across the river Tagus before leading you down to the city’s Cathedral Sé. Recent excavations have unearthed some amazing ruins dating back to Roman times and we’ll tell you all about them.

Then it’s off to a completely new area, the Baixa at the Praça do Comercio. The Lisbon earthquake of 1755 completely destroyed most of the city and we’ll tell you about the tragic irony that made it particularly devastating.

Our guide to Lisbon then moves on to the Chiado starting with the Museu do Chiado. We’ll show you the Igreja de Sao Roque, the patron saint of plague victims.
