Small Group Private Lisbon Sightseeing Tour
Lisbon is the city of seven hills and medieval twisting small streets, the city of churches, royal palaces and fortresses, viewpoints, well-known funiculars and trams, cosy cafes with excellent Portuguese coffee and fresh pastries. It is the city where everyone will find something special and personal and this city sightseeing tour will give you the chance to visit the most interesting places in ancient Lisbon.
We will stop at the viewpoint of the park of Edward VII and pass through the area of the Marquis de Pombal and Avenida de Liberdade — “Champs Elysée” of Lisbon where shops of the famous brands are located.
See the area of Baixa which was destroyed during the earthquake of 1755, the central Square of Rossio, the pedestrian street of Agusta, the Square of the Fig Tree and the Commerce square. You will be in the heart of Lisbon! This is where the real capital life is!
Next is the ancient area of Alfama which is located on the highest hill of Lisbon, then to the ancient Cathedral which resembles more a fortress than a place where the Lisbon inhabitants come to the Sunday service.
We will climb even higher, passing by multi-colored houses with tile roofs, narrow small streets where ancient trams run. And here, at the top of the hill, we will be awaited by the viewpoint of Grace with a fantastic view on the Saint George’s fortress, the 25th of April Bridge and the areas of Baixa and Bairro Alto. For a long time, Grace’s harmony attracts numerous tourists and inspires local poets and artists.
Then we will have to go further, as it will be the time to learn where in Lisbon the Thieves’ market is situated and how to get to the National Pantheon, where the Museum of Fado and the unusual House with “thorns” are.
Then we will move to the Belém district and visit the monument to the Great Geographical Discoveries era, as well as the majestic Jeronimos Monastery designed in the pure Portuguese style and where the seafarer Vasco da Gama, the poet Luish Kamoysh and representatives of the second royal dynasty of the Avis are buried.
The Bethlehem Tower in the form of a caravel and a modern monument to the Discoverers will remind us of the Golden Age of Portugal.
We will see the most important monuments of Lisbon and learn how the Phoenicians, the Greeks, the Romans and the Arabs called this place, as well as what the life in Lisbon is like today, what the “azulejo”, the “calçada”, the manuelino period and the fado songs are.
