Lisbon for Absolute Beginners

125 EURO

The perfect tour for those visiting Lisbon for the first time. Step back in time and discover the history of the Portuguese capital of Lisbon on this Lisbon for absolute beginners tour.

Lisbon can be a challenge with so many hills and steep streets. In this tour we believe, every effort is worthwhile and the views we will enjoy from two of the most iconic hills are breathtaking. One of such viewpoints is the  S. Pedro de Alcântara Garden, where we will enjoy the lovely view of  downtown Lisbon and the Castle. 

Through the trendy Bairro Alto we will have a glimpse of one of the traditional nightlife spots in the city and we will walk down to the Carmo square, passing the elevator Santa Justa. Through the elegant district of Chiado we will discover interesting shops, historical cafes and old bookstores.

Down to Rossio square and through Praça da Figueira and Baixa (Downtown) we will learn how much the city was transformed by the earthquake of 1755. And up again we reach the old town surrounding the castle and wander through the labyrinth-like district of Alfama.

Our tour will end at Praça do Comércio, near the  Tagus river.
