Our Tour always begin at a place previously arranged with our clients, which can be the Hotel Restaurant or anywhere else.
After that we drove to the center of the city, downtown passing in the Restauradores Square the Rossio, Baixa and Comercio Square one of the biggest and most beautiful squares of Europe.
Next we will go up and see the Old City. This area was built around the Castle of St. George and hence grew. The Old City is full of monuments, and the first to visit will be Cathedral Cathedral, Built in the twelfth century, it is one of the oldest monuments of the city.
Then, the tour passes through the viewpoints Santa Luzia and Portas do Sol where you can enjoy an impressive view over the Tagus River. These terraces offer the best views worthy of an illustrated postcard of Lisbon.
Also the best photographs are taken from here, seeing the river and the domes and roofs of the oldest quarter of the city, Alfama.
Continuing our journey in time, we will cross the Graça neighborhood and the tuk-tuk will go to the highest point of the city, Nossa Senhora do Monte. With a breathtaking view over the Castle, you will also be able to have the best view over Lisbon. Ali is the perfect place for your guide to explain the city's growth over the centuries.
Then we will pass through Alfama, the most typical neighborhood of the city, now to enjoy the Monastery of São Vicente de Fora, one of the most beautiful Lisbon attractions and the National Pantheon, a monument full of history, to pay homage to those who have had an important role in the history of Portugal.
You could not miss a visit to the medieval quarter (once a Jewish quarter and a fishing community) and one of the oldest districts in Europe. It is a neighborhood to be lost by alleys and wide, letting itself be guided by the senses. A walking tour within the neighborhood of Alfama will show you the most picturesque of Lisbon and the true soul of the city. And of course this will be the time to enjoy sampling the famous ginjinha, a very genuine and typical Portuguese moment.
Finally we will go to Belém, the historical district of the Discoveries. It was from these banks of the Tagus that Vasco da Gama and other navigators set out on epic voyages, celebrated here through great monuments and museums.
The extraordinary architecture of the Tower of Bethlehem and the Jeronimos Monastery (both World Heritage) is the result of the discovery of the sea route to India and also of the colonization of Brazil and parts of Africa and Asia.
Returning to the city center the tour ends at the starting point or if you prefer we can advise some place to enjoy the rest of your time.
